Placerville Recreation Department’s 2013 youth basketball season is about to begin. Be sure to register your children early as space is limited. Early bird registration is $87; after September 27, the fee will increase to $97. The Placerville Youth Basketball program is designed to provide a fun experience where sportsmanship and teamwork are emphasized. Beginning in January, league games are held on Saturdays and Sundays at El Dorado High School and neighboring schools.
Boys’ and girls’ divisions are offered for students in grades K-8. Parents may request their child be placed on a team with a specific coach; otherwise, children are placed on teams with others from the same school or the closest available area. During the season, participants attend one practice per week at local schools throughout the greater Placerville area.
As always, the Placerville Recreation Department depends on dedicated parent volunteers to coach more than 80 teams in this program. If you are interested in volunteering your time, energy and talent as a youth basketball coach, please contact the Placerville Recreation Department for details. As a bonus and thank you for your involvement, the head coach’s child receives free program registration.
