Sportsfields

*UPDATE 8/24/2020:  

Athletic Fields are open for general use and sports practice only (no games or tournaments). Use is subject to Washington state’s guidelines for Limited Outdoor Sports and Recreation. Teams and organizations caught using the fields in a manner that defies local health authority orders will have their permits pulled, and/or will not be allowed to reserve Bothell fields in the future.  

An athletic field permit is required for organized sports practice. Walk-on activities are also allowed, however non-permitted users must always relinquish the field to designated athletic field permit holders.  

Athletic field permits will be limited in fall 2020 to youth sports teams who are training in groups of up to five children + one coach in a designated area. The priority for each sport is determined based on criteria set forth in our field allocation manual. In fall, youth soccer and football receive priority for scheduling. Due to limited resources and budget cuts as a result of COVID-19, North Creek Sports Fields 1, 2, and 4 are the only fields available for permitted use at this time.  

To be considered for an athletic field permit, organizations must: 

  • Have had a Field Use Agreement on file with the City of Bothell between 2018-2019. 
  • Primarily serve Bothell residents, and submit a verified list of players that reside in Bothell’s city limits (see “Verifying Player Residency” on p. 7 of the Field Scheduling Guide). Field allocation formulas can be viewed in the Field Allocation Guide on this page.  
  • Submit a detailed COVID-19 Safety Plan which follows the guideline’s set forth by Governor Inslee’s Safe Start program for outdoor recreation.  
  • Meet all requirements within the Field Allocation and Scheduling Guides.  

If an organization meets all requirements above, and their sports has been designated for priority within this season (currently: fall), please submit all documents to recreation@bothellwa.gov for consideration.
