Highland Groveland Recreation Association (HGRA) provides fun, family-friendly, affordable sports programs in soccer, baseball, and track for youth athletes of all skill levels.
HGRA creates community through sports. It’s our mission to create low-stress, low-cost, sports programming for the Highland Park and surrounding twin cities communities that are not only beneficial to our athletes but the entire family.
Our sports programs are player-centric and focused on creating a fun and relaxed environment for our athletes and their families.
HGRA’s top priority is to provide a safe and enjoyable experience for our participants and their families. We therefore remain committed to honoring the guidance and directives from the Minnesota Department of Health in regards to maintaining a safe environment for youth athletes.
Please review HGRA’s COVID Preparedness Plan and be assured that we will be vigilant and transparent in our efforts to protect your family’s health.
