Park Pulse 410

We asked the public: 

Which of the following would you take into consideration most if you were registering yourself or a family member for recreational team sports in your community?

The top three factors Americans take into account are as follows:

  • 50% Scheduling
  • 47% Location
  • 43% Cost

Cost is the No. 1 consideration for those earning less than $50,000:

  • 54% of those with an income between $35K and $50K
  • 44% from those with an income less than $35K

Each month, through a poll of Americans that is focused on park and recreation issues, NRPA Park Pulse helps tell the park and recreation story. Questions span from the serious to the more lighthearted. The survey was conducted by Wakefield Research. Visit the Park Pulse press release for more information.
