LEARN’s KidsPlay program provides an organized gender specific athletic league for boys and girls in grades 5th – 8th. Coaches are trained in each sport and students participate in organized league play in Basketball, Olympic Team Handball, Cross Country and Flag Football.
Financial support for this year’s leagues comes from El Monte City School District to provide organized sports opportunities for their school district’s youth who might not have the opportunity to play otherwise.
The emphasis of KidsPlay is to provide an opportunity to play, learn and develop confidence in learning new and healthy lifestyle skills. All El Monte City School District sites with ASPIRE and ASPIRE Plus programs field teams in the above mentioned sports at no cost to students. Students register at their school site with their ASPIRE Site Coordinator.
KidsPlay is also open to any school wishing to participate in any of the the KidsPlay leagues for a fee. To learn more about registering your non-ASPIRE school into our leagues, please email email@example.com or call Gabriel at (562) 945-0150.
