The City of Cheyenne Community Recreation and Events Department has announced the completion of the lighting installation at the Cheyenne Junior League Complex, which promises to elevate the sports experience for young athletes and enhance community engagement.

The installation of new lights will not only meet growing demand but is also estimated to facilitate an additional 200 to 300 reservations each season. This expansion will enable more evening games, practices, and opportunities for teams and players to participate, fostering a stronger sense of community engagement.

The Cheyenne Junior League Complex has seen a steady rise in field reservations over the years, reflecting the community's unwavering commitment to youth sports. With 877 reservations in 2021, 862 in 2022, and 895 in 2023, demand for field usage has been consistently high. For the 2024 season, reservations have already surpassed previous years, reaching an impressive 1,035, with the season still underway.

This significant project was made possible through ARPA funds and Community Enhancement fees.

Serving a diverse range of age groups, including High School Girls Softball (Ages 14-18), WYCO Baseball (Ages 8u-11u), WYCO Softball (Ages 8u-18u), Cheyenne Extreme (Ages 8u-18u), and Cheyenne Junior League Baseball (Ages 8u-12u), the Cheyenne Junior League is dedicated to providing inclusive sports experiences for all participants.

The City of Cheyenne Community Recreation and Events Department led the installation project, aligning with its mission to enrich the quality of life for Cheyenne residents by providing diverse recreational opportunities and fostering community connections.
