The city's youth basketball league will begin on Dec. 12, and the last day to register is Dec. 30.
The league, which includes students from Arcadia, Rosemead and San Gabriel, is a chance for children to learn the fundamentals of sports, gain a sense of pride and sportsmanship and enhance their basketball skills. The program is for boys and girl in grades one through six. All teams in the league are co-ed and are open to all who would like to participate. All practices and home games will be at Jefferson Middle School.
The San Gabriel Youth Basketball League will begin the week of Dec. 12 and run through March 25. Game days, times and the number of games may vary depending on number of teams and gym space. All participants will need to present verification of grade (enrollment verification from your child’s school) when registering. Registration will be open through Dec. 30 at the Community Recreation Center, 250 S Mission Dr. in San Gabriel. The cost is $125 per participant, which includes the league fee and a jersey.
There is no guarantee of placement on a team if not registered by Dec. 30. All special requests will also need to be made at time of registration. For more information on youth programs, please contact Recreation Supervisor James Lara at 626.308.2875 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
