City of Gaithersburg sports programs are designed to get residents out and moving in a positive and safe atmosphere. In May of 2006, the Mayor and City Council adopted a series of standards for conducting youth sports programs in the City: The “Summit on Raising Community Standards in Children’s Sports” conducted by the National Alliance on Youth Sports and The Arizona Sports Summit Accords for Raising Community Standards for Youth Sports. This adoption demonstrated the importance of how youth sports are conducted in the City.
