Registration is open for boys and girls to join Mesa Youth Basketball next month. Students in kindergarten through eighth grade are welcome to the league, run by the Mesa Unified School District.
Mesa Youth Basketball promotes friendly competition, fundamental skills and success in athletics and in life.
Coaches are parent volunteers. Each coach gets a child’s registration for free. Games are played on Saturdays. All coaches are approved through the district’s human resources department through a process that includes a background check and concussion awareness training. Online registration for the 2013 winter season is open now through Jan. 4. Mail-in registration is also available. Last-chance registration is 10 a.m. to noon Jan. 12 at the Mesa Education Center gymnasium, 855 W. Eighth Ave. A coaching and player clinic is set for Jan. 12. Games begin Jan. 19.
