Raytown is fortunate to have several very good not-for-profit organizations providing youth sports for our kids. Because these organizations do such a good job, we choose not to offer competing and/or conflicting programs. We rely on them to run the programs that meet the youth sports needs in our community and they rely on us to provide some of the facilities they need to offer their programs. It’s an efficient relationship that serves our community well and saves lots of tax dollars as a result.
