If you’ve been hoping to get your kids interested in sports, there’s no better time than Spring. The weather is mild, the outdoors look glorious – it’s the best time for playing! Whether you’re a concerned parent that wants their kid to exercise more or one with a child interested in competitive sports – sports leagues are a great option either way.
Read on for a list of some of the best sporting leagues for kids in or near Danville. Get them out and active!
The San Ramon Valley Girls Athletic League is the largest girls’ softball organization west of the Mississippi. SRVGAL admits girls as young as five years old, up till the age of 18. They’re a nonprofit formed in 1974, and foster an excellent atmosphere of camaraderie, competition, and team spirit. Registrations will open around early September, and practice starts as early as February 1st. Check their website for updates, and for the final date announcement.
For as little as $185, your child will receive basketball coaching – in the form of eight hour-long games on Sundays. Their goal is to introduce children to the exciting game of basketball, and instill a passion in them at an early age – and of course, to teach them the basics, so they can practice whenever they get a chance. The games will be played at Diablo Vista Middle School (in the community gym). There’s nothing like basketball to get your kid active. Go for it!
Children aged 5-12 can join – although Danville Little League has very strict age and division requirements. They have high standards and strict discipline. This can make getting in a little difficult, but if your child is with them, he/she is in good hands. DLL identify every child’s strength and interests and help them leverage both to become better at the game. If you’re interested in learning more, their website has all the details.
This little league, based in Danville, CA, is open to boys and girls between the ages of 5-16. They coach young kids on how to play baseball – teaching them sportsmanship, loyalty, courage, and respect for authority in the process. They have several locations across Danville and San Ramon, so you should be able to find one that’s close enough to you.
Tennis is a fun, evergreen sport, and the Youth Tennis League will turn your child into a tennis pro! They admit children aged 5-14 and have sessions in Danville and Dublin. They have two Danville locations – Monte Vista High and Osage Station Park. Their fees (for the Danville locations) are $182 for 8 classes, a medal, and a progress report. They have some other small extras and discounts – visit the website for more info.
