What Is the Youth Sports Commission?

Certify Your Youth Sports Organization

The Bernalillo County Parks & Recreation Department, in partnership with the Bernalillo County Youth Sports Commission, honors and supports businesses and individuals (Youth Sports Organizations) who have developed a wide variety of programs to provide healthy activities for our children.

As part of that support and to ensure the health, safety and welfare of the youth participants in the programs provided by Youth Sports Organizations that use public facilities in Bernalillo County, the Parks & Recreation Department and the Youth Sports Commission have developed a process by which Youth Sports Organizations can demonstrate their capacity to the public in a transparent manner through a certification program.

Those Youth Sports Organizations that receive certification will receive the designation of Certified Youth Sports Organization (CYSO). A CYSO has demonstrated that it adheres to best practices and has established reasonable operating procedures, which protect participants, volunteers, administrators and those who provide access to facilities.

  • Art Along the Rio Grande: Experience Nature Through the Artists' Lens is a visual exploration of the ecological and cultural richness of the South Valley’s Valle de Oro Wildlife Refuge. The exhibit is a joint project of the Refuge, Gutiérrez Hubbell House, Friends of Valle de Oro, Hubbell House Alliance, and Bernalillo County Public Art. Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge is the Southwest’s first urban refuge, located in the South Valley, just a few miles south of downtown Albuquerque. The refuge is in the process of restoring a former dairy farm back to a mosaic of native New Mexico habitats in order to provide an oasis for wildlife as well as an abundance of education and recreation opportunities for the community. The exhibit showcases the work of local artists in diverse mediums. For the past 7 years, photographers of all ages and skill levels have been invited to participate in an annual photo contest hosted by the refuge, to capture images of the refuge's wildlife, landscapes and people. This exhibit will feature the winning images from the 2019 photo contest, highlighting the refuge this past year as it begins restoration. Sketches and images from the Fall 2019 field mural project featuring 5 women muralists will be on display at GHH. The murals can still be seen at the Refuge, while sketches, photos, and other works reflect the goals and processes of the artists. Artwork by local Artist Wren Walraven, will also be featured. Wren’s artwork content comes from her personal experiences with wildlife, her passion for those animals and the magical desert scenery. Join us in this celebration of the South Valley’s environmental beauty, creativity, and community connections.
