“One of Bernalillo County's top priorities is promotion of health and fitness for residents young and old. We offer excellent and affordable sports programs for young people in our community as part of that effort,” Commission Chair Maggie Hart Stebbins says.
Last year, the youth basketball program served about 2,000 children via organized league play at each of Bernalillo County’s seven community centers and some local schools throughout the county.
Registration fees are $100 per player or $900 per 10-member team. However, fees can be reduced or waived for low-income families.
Registration occurs in person at the county’s Parks and Recreation Department, 111 Union Square Street S.E., Suite 203.
Registration closes on March 22, 2013. For free and reduced fees, the deadline is March 15.
Participants need to bring a copy of their birth certificate and coaches must undergo a background check.
