Important Information Regarding Athletic Fields Usage

Pursuant to the County Executive’s most recent Executive Order, to protect the health and wellbeing of the residents of Prince George’s County, the use of M-NCPPC, Department of Parks and Recreation fields/courts for high-contact sports competition and game play (e.g. football, soccer, basketball, etc.) is prohibited. 

Usage of select Department of Parks and Recreation athletic fields is allowed by permit only, for the purposes of practice and skills training instruction only. This usage must follow outlined COVID-19 athletic field usage guidelines which notes there is no more than 1 coach and 9 children per group within the designated athletic field play area. Those individuals must have a permit, adhere to wearing face coverings, social distancing, and other safety measures. Contact Athletic.Permits@pgparks.com for details. 

Maryland-National Capital Park Police will inspect fields in our park facilities as part of their routine patrols to ensure that no illegal sports are taking place.
