Yes, it's actually worse in the school district where I work. They think nothing of having 6-7 year olds on the field at 10 pm for baseball games. Then, I have to deal with them the next day all exhausted. I do think exercise and sports are important, really I do, but I just find that to be ridiculous.

Wow, that is late! My kids are in bed by 7:30/8 on most nights. Dd is going to be 4 and we are debating if a 6:00 gymnastics class is too late since she won't get home until 7:15 and still need to wind down and bathe, etc.

Yes it's always been that way here. It gets worse as they get older too because they try to let the youngest kids go first. Braedon's practices were around 5:30 - 7 PM for football, Brent's was from 6 to 8 PM. Games were all over the place up to 9 PM at night. We have so many kids in our county though and not enough fields even though we have 6 parks with at least 6 to 8 fields each.

I think those times are RIDICULOUS! What are people thinking- young kids especially need their sleep!

It's like that here as well... when Avery was taking gymnastics (she started at 23 months and we quit around 3 years and a couple months) but her latest class was 7:45pm... and there were classes afterward ours. It was never a problem because she doesn't go to bed early, but for some kids, I find that super late. Her dance class is at 4pm... but her teacher asks before giving a time that early because of parents who work "bank hours"...
