The City Council has set a fee of $80 per team for field reservations. This fee is payable with your application and will be refunded if you are unable to get a practice field. The check should be made payable to the "City of Prairie Village."
- Teams are allowed a maximum of two - 1½ hour practices per week.
- Team rosters are required for all teams. They need to include the team members home address, the school they attend and their age to verify the team's eligibility as a preferred Prairie Village Team.
- Uncontested practice requests will be filled and a permit will be mailed to coaches.
- Teams requesting conflicting times will be determined by a lottery. A representative from each team must be present to select for their team. (i.e. fields can not be selected by a different coach on behalf of the team coach.) Coaches will be notified by the City Clerk's Office of the date and time of the lottery.
- As names are drawn the coach may select only one field - when all names have been drawn, the second field will be awarded in reverse order of the draw. (i.e. first name drawn will have the first & last selection)
- No permits will be issued without a team roster on file.
Note: The Council Policy on the reservation of fields states that fields will be awarded to Prairie Village teams prior to issuing fields to non-Prairie Village teams.
