Athletics Division

Parks & Recreation Department


The Athletics Coordinator, Felipe "Flip" de Varona, and staff administer the Sports and Athletics Division. The Athletics Division implements the programs with the guidance of the Village Council-appointed Youth Athletics Advisory Board. Programs available for children and teens include: flag football, tackle football, volleyball, soccer, baseball, basketball, volleyball, rugby and field hockey. Adult programs include a spring soccer league and fall co-ed softball. Some programs are run completely by Athletics staff in the Parks and Recreation Department, and others are run in partnership with community organizations. In FY 2011 the youth athletic programs were self-funding for the first time since incorporation while registration increased thirty three percent.

The Division's responsibilities have changed and increased since its formation. In 1993, under the terms and conditions of an annual contract approved by Village Council Resolution 97-57, the Athletics Division assumed respoinsibility for the administration of the Key Biscayne Athletic Club (KBAC), which for years provided and managed community athletic programs on a volunteer basis. In 2008 Council approved a recommendation from the KBAC that the Village Parks & Recreation staff assume the administrative duties related to providing athletic programs for the residents of the Village. The Village Council approved the appointment of a Youth Athletics Advisory Board to provide recommendations to the Village. The KBAC remains in existence with the main objectives of obtaining volunteers and fundraising. The new model approved by Village Council and the Key Biscayne Athletic Club placed managerial and administrative responsibility within the department.
