Registration is underway for the winter season of youth Basketball at the Santa Monica YMCA.
Forms are available at the Y at 6th and Santa Monica Blvd., and registration runs through the end of new player tryouts on January 15, 2015.
The league is expected to have co-ed skill based teams, rather than divisions by age and grade. All players make a team which pratices once or twice a week indoors at the Y for an hour, then plays games on either Saturday or Sunday afternoons.
All players get a uniform to keep, a pizza feed awards-for-all party, trained coaches and refs, good fundamental training and lots of fun.
The fall league is almost over, and while champions have been crowned in three divisions (Major Tornados, Minor Trojands and Rookie Scorpions) the fourth division championship game in the Bantam League features the Vikings and Lions at 2:50 pm on Sunday, Dec. 7 at the Y (admission is free).
The Y is always looking for volunteer coaches and paid game referees, and anyone interested in either position or looking for further information should contact league director Peter Arbogast at 310.393.2721 ext. 137 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
