What else?

If you’re ready for something different, we’re fortunate to be neighbors to many other great sports clubs, most of which start registering players around now. You’ll see many of the same AYSO players and volunteer coaches playing softball and baseball with Little League and PONY League. Those games start in March, about when All-Stars and Grad Series end. Girls can and do play baseball, by the way. If you already know how to ice skate, check out Li’l Kings hockey in Pasadena for kids 5-9, wherein the NHL provides all the equipment, to keep! Hockey may be the sport that most welcomes girls and boys to play together. Lacrosse is gaining in popularity, as well as Flag Football. Basketball goes year-round, and you’ll find a league at just about every recreational center, including Foothill Hoops.
For individual sports, there’s TennisWrestling, and Swimming. If you’re looking for the most laid-back, no commitment recreation, try the new pickleball courts in La Cañada.
There’s much more. We’ve linked to a few programs with similar philosophies to AYSO – positive coaching, everyone plays, balanced teams, and player development. The costs are similar to Region 13 soccer, and you can register as an individual player, not as a team. If we missed any, let us know to include them in a future newsletter.
