Fall Youth Sports Leagues in La Mirada

Post Date:07/26/2017 11:49 AM

Register now for fall youth sports leagues offered by the City of La Mirada. Recreational youth sports offered for the fall season include Friday Night Football, Volleyball, and Volleytennis.  Children ages 5 to 17 are invited to participate.

The popular Friday Night Football League is returning for the fall season.  Open to ages 5 to17, the league promotes the flag football style of play with less contact and limited blocking.  The quick strike, high scoring offensive style of play helps develop players’ skills and allows for a fun and safe environment.  All games are played Friday evenings at Behringer Park during the fall season.  Practices begin the week of October 23 and the league cost is $70.

The City’s Youth Volleyball league is back for the fall season.  Open to those ages 9 to 17, the league focuses on the basics of volleyball, including passing, setting, hitting, serving, and defense. The Youth Volleyball league is held at the La Mirada Community Gymnasium and the cost is $65.

Volleytennis is offered to 7 to 8 year olds who want to play volleyball.  The net in this league is lowered to a tennis-level height, and the ball may bounce between each hit. This league is the perfect introduction to the sport of volleyball and allows kids to learn basic passing and serving techniques. Games are played on Saturday or Sunday afternoons at the Community Gymnasium and the cost is $65.  Practices for Volleytennis and Volleyball begin the week of October 2.

“These leagues are the perfect way for youth participants to learn the fundamentals of a new sport or fine tune their athletic skills,” says Community Services Coordinator Joshua Gire.

Registration ends on September 18 for volleyball/volleytennis and October 9 for football.  For more information or to sign up, visit cityoflamirada.org or call (562) 902-2938.
