YMCA Summer Kids Pickup Basketball

The Santa Monica YMCA is once again offering a unique summer youth basketball experience with their summer kids pickup league. Each Monday and Wednesday afternoon and evening from June 16 through early August, kids can come and play on teams that get picked that day. Ages 5-9 from 5-6:15 p.m., then ages 10-14 from 6:30-8 p.m. There will be no instruction, no coaching, no adults allowed! Just kids (and the program supervisor of course!) Players will learn how to select teams, call their own fouls and violations, settle their own disputes in full court, half court, league and tournament games. No uniforms, no trophies, just good old fashioned fun. The program costs $25 for Santa Monica YMCA members, $160 for non-members and you can sign up the first day you come. Come as often as you'd like, any day you'd like. Contact youth basketball coordinator Peter Arbogast at 310-393-2721 x 137 for more information.
