Registration begins for youth basketball

Registration runs through Dec. 1 for the 2020 South Whidbey Parks and Recreation District youth basketball season.

The league is open to first- through sixth-graders.

Boys in seventh and eighth grade are eligible for the competitive traveling team which competes in Skagit County’s SWISH League. Teams are grouped by grade, but a combined-grade team may be formed. Practices are on South Whidbey, but games take place in Skagit County.

The local youth league will hold a skills assessment Sat., Dec. 7, and games begin in January.

The league is “a fun way to learn and enjoy this awesome game; it offers a great first experience or a chance to refine your skills,” according to a SWPRD press release. “We provide a chance to play in a positive learning environment.”

Limited need-based scholarships are available.

Volunteers are needed to coach or assist in the operation of the league.

The league also needs team sponsors; local businesses can support youth athletics and help defray the cost of the league.

For more information or to register, go to www.swparks.org or call 360-221-6788.
