Redwood City's PAL Basketball League Seeking
Redwood City, CA - February 9, 2005
- Redwood City PAL is announcing a great opportunity to help at-risk kids, and have a great time doing it! Volunteer coaches are needed for the upcoming season of 7th & 8th grade boys and girls basketball leagues, as part of the Police Activities League Basketball program.
With a small commitment of time, volunteers can make a significant difference in the life of the youth of Redwood City. Basketball games and practices will be held at Red Morton Community Center, Peninsula Boys and Girls Club, or Garfield School, Monday through Thursday in the afternoon and early evening. Most teams will play twice a week, and practice once a week in between game days. Volunteer coaches must complete a Volunteer Registration Form and be cleared through a fingerprinting process. The season runs from March 3rd through April 21st.
Volunteering to coach at-risk kids in PAL’s basketball program helps to make a positive change in someone’s life – and make a difference in the volunteer coach’s life as well. Call today to get involved!
