Registration Open for Kirkland's Youth Basketball Leagues

Have a great time making new friends, developing skills and learning teamwork in one of America's all time favorite activities - basketball!  This youth basketball program, for boys and girls in grades 3 through 6, features equal play for all participants in a positive learning environment.  Online and walk-in registration is now available.  Games will be held on Saturdays at local junior high schools from January 8, 2011 through March 2011. Fee is only $80 per child and includes a T-shirt.  Visit www.kirklandparks.net or call Kirkland Parks & Community Services at 425-587-3336 to register.

Participants must register by October 16 for the school they attend. Registrations after that date will be taken as space is available. Walk-in registration is available at the Peter Kirk Community Center, 352 Kirkland Avenue, North Kirkland Community Center, 12421 103rd Avenue NE, and the Parks & Community Services Department, 505 Market Street. Practices begin the week of November 15 and will be held at local area schools.

This program offers a fun and exciting format designed to foster personal and athletic growth.  Teams will benefit from working with dedicated, qualified and supportive volunteer coaches who will lead them through positive interactions and encourage sportsmanship. This league is sponsored in part by Land O’ Frost.  For more about this sports league and other City of Kirkland recreation programming, call 425-587-3330.
