Registration Opens for Winter Youth, Teen Sports Basketball, Volleyball Programs Available
Registration opens on October 15 for Winter Youth and Teen Sports Programs in the City of Gaithersburg. Winter programs are offered in basketball and volleyball, with most leagues having just one practice and one game per week, allowing youth and their families time for other activities. Start Smart™ programs only meet one time per week.
Registration is on a first come, first served basis, and some programs have limited space. The registration deadline is November 17. The City cannot guarantee entry into a program for registrations received after the deadline. Register online and view complete program details at www.gaithersburgmd.gov/sports, or visit the Activity Center at Bohrer Park, 506 South Frederick Avenue next to Gaithersburg High School.
Fees for the youth programs are $50 per City resident and $65 for nonresidents. Fees for the teen programs are $55 per City resident and $70 for nonresidents.
