Important Information Regarding Athletic Fields Usage
Pursuant to the County Executive’s most recent Executive Order, to protect the health and wellbeing of the residents of Prince George’s County, the use of M-NCPPC, Department of Parks and Recreation fields/courts for high-risk sports competition and game play (e.g. tackle football with helmets/pads, basketball, and rugby) is prohibited. Practice that involves skill-building and drills in small groups is allowed.
Usage of select Department of Parks and Recreation athletic fields is allowed by permit only.

User groups must have a permit, adhere to wearing face coverings, social distancing, and other safety measures.Contact Athletic.Permits@pgparks.com for details.
Maryland-National Capital Park Police will inspect fields in our park facilities as part of their routine patrols to ensure that no illegal sports are taking place. Anyone participating in high-contact sports in violation of the Executive Order can be charged with a misdemeanor crime and subject to a $1,000 fine or up to one year in jail.
