MALIBU, CA — Sign-ups are now open for the City of Malibu's youth basketball programs, including the youth and middle school girls league and co-ed league, as well as Itty Bitty Basketball.

The registration fee is $150 per player before the registration deadline on Friday, October 11. Registration includes a jersey, picture package and end-of-program award. After the deadline, if space is available, the fee is raised to $175 per participant.

"The co-ed and girls basketball leagues are great ways to learn the game of basketball in a friendly, supportive setting focused on recreation and sportsmanship," the City of Malibu said.

The youth and middle school girls league and co-ed league participants will be divided by grade to create divisions. The youth divisions are: kindergarten to first grade, second to third grade and fourth to fifth grade. The middle school division is for sixth to eighth graders, the City press release said.

Middle school division games will be played on Friday evenings, from December 6 through February 14. Mandatory player evaluations for the division will be Wednesday, October 23 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Malibu High School. Youth division games will be held on Saturday mornings, from December 7 through February 15. No games will be held December 20 through January 4. The practice day and location for all teams will be selected by the volunteer parent coach, the press release said.

The City also offers the Itty Bitty Basketball program for kids ages 3 to 5. This weekly Parent and Me program is scheduled for Saturday mornings, from December 7 through February 15, from 9 a.m. to 9:45 a.m. at Malibu High School. No classes will be held December 21 through January 4. The registration fee is $120 per player and includes a jersey, picture package and end-of-program award.
