Youth Sports

City of Boca Raton Athletics (COBRA)

COBRA is an acronym for City of Boca Raton Athletics. COBRA youth sports programs (as well as COBRA adult sports programs) are administered by City of Boca Raton staff.  These staff members directly coach most of the youth programs and have obtained their CYSA (Certified Youth Sports Administrator) certification through the National Alliance for Youth Sports agency. Our program directors put an emphasis on sportsmanship, team play, and learning the game while ensuring equal playing time for all, regardless of skill level. COBRA staff are trained specifically in youth sports programming and each sport has an administrator who is always easily accessible for any questions or concerns. Each league has rules in place that promote progressive steps of learning in said sport. One thing that we can definitely guarantee is that the participants will have FUN! 

Our mission is to enhance the lives of our community by providing safe, high quality parks and recreational facilities with wide ranging, affordable sports and recreational activities for people of all ages to play, learn and build relationships.

Independent Youth Associations

The City of Boca Raton partners with multiple Independent Youth Associations (IYA's) to conduct various youth sports programs. These IYA's conduct/administer the programs and the City of Boca Raton schedules their facility use on City of Boca Raton and Greater Boca Raton Beach & Park district facilities.
