United Boys & Girls Clubs, Goleta Unit Youth Basketball Registration Now Open

Winter basketball registration at the United Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Barbara County, Goleta Unit runs through Dec. 15, 2015, for the 2015-2016 youth basketball season.

In 2014, youth basketball at the Goleta Unit experienced a resurgence in popularity and the program continues to rapidly grow.

The leagues are co-ed and are open to any children in K-6 grade. The club also provides select scholarships and payment plans for those families who are in need of financial assistance.

The emphasis for the league is to provide a safe, fun basketball experience where kids can enhance their skills, develop at their own pace, build confidence and make new friends.

“The Goleta Boys & Girls Club is the perfect place for a child to develop skills, experience competitive play and enjoy a life-changing experience with friends,” said Brad Pullen, athletic director for the Club. “The Goleta Boys & Girls Club has a rich history of providing quality, instructive basketball to the youth of our community.”

The cost for the season is $80 and includes a game jersey, 8-10 basketball games and end-of-season tournament. The club also provides a mid-season clinic where youth have the opportunity to play on an all-stars travel team at the conclusion of the season.

All players must also be members of the United Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Barbara County, which enables youth to attend the after school program, summer program, inter-club events and a variety of sports leagues through December 2016.

The cost of membership is $40 annually.

Evaluations will take place in the gym Dec. 17, 2015, to ensure teams are even. Players are also placed based on requests to be with friends and which school they attend.  

Practices start Jan. 4, 2016, and games start Jan. 18 and continue through mid-March.

This year the Goleta Unit is also hosting teams from the Santa Barbara Westside Unit and Campus Point Unit. An inter-club tournament including the Carpinteria Unit is also planned to conclude the season.

To register or find out more information, visit the club's website or drop by, at 5701 Hollister Avenue.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
