The registration deadline for the South Whidbey Parks and Recreation District’s 2016-17 Youth League is Jan. 1.

Boys and girls in grades 1-6 can compete. The league serves both as an introduction to the sport and an opportunity to be competitive while also refining player skills. All participants are placed on a team at random and get to play at least two quarters of basketball per game.

The registration fee is $80.

Volunteers are needed to coach or help assist in the operation of the league. The district is also in need of team sponsors and local businesses which support youth athletics and help defray the cost of the league. For more information, visit www.swparks.org or contact the district at 360-221-6788.
