The San Fernando Valley Japanese American Community Center Athletics Association invites your child to join one of our boys or girls youth basketball teams. The K-1st coed basketball teams and Boys’ basketball teams participate in the Crescent Bay Optimist Invitational Sports League (CBO). Girls’ basketball teams participate in the Japanese American Optimist Girls’ Invitational Basketball League (JAO).
The CBO League starts the 1st week of November and runs until the middle of February, about 8 - 10 games, typically played on Sundays between 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM. Kinder and 1st grade games teams will play at either the Venice Japanese Community Center or the SF Valley Japanese American Community Center. Starting in 2nd grade, the games are typically played in High School gyms located along the 405 corridor.
The signup deadline for priority placement on a roster, for the upcoming 2019-2020 season, is August 1st. Teams will be formed in August and practices will begin in September.
The Kinder teams practice on Friday nights from 6:00 - 7:30 at the SF Community Center. Depending on the coach they may select a 2nd practice time. Older teams practices are held at the Community Center and/or at local middle and high school gyms depending on the choice of the coach.
