Survey looks to promote amateur sports in Columbia

Thursday, June 26, 2014 | 7:34 p.m. CDT

COLUMBIA — If you enjoy a sport that you think is underrepresented, the Columbia Parks and Recreation Department wants to hear from you.

Parks and Recreation sent out a survey Tuesday to find out which amateur sports local coaches, players, parents, fans and organizers would like to see promoted more in Columbia.

The questionnaire takes only three to five minutes to complete. It asks questions such as:

  • What are the ways in which you've been involved with amateur sports in the past?
  • What kind of amateur sports do you have an interest in?
  • What are reasons why people you know have or have not participated in certain amateur sports in Columbia?

The results of the survey will be used to determine the direction of future sports development in Columbia.

Parks and Recreation offers both adult and youth team sports programs year-round, according to its website.

Basketball, volleyball, softball and kickball are available for adults and baseball, softball, T-ball, basketball, football, lacrosse, soccer, tennis, track and cross-country are offered for youths.

The survey can be found at and can be taken until Friday.

Supervising editor is Landon Woodroof
