KidsPlay Program

An organized athletic club for boys and girls in grades 3rd – 8th. Coaches are trained in each sport and students participate in organized league play in Basketball, Olympic Team Handball, Cross Country, Flag Football, Volleyball and Olympic Events.

Due to COVID-19, all KidsPlay programming has been postponed until further notice.

KidsPlay is now taking registrations for 2019-20 sports.

Parents/Guardians should obtain a paper registration form from the ASPIRE Site Coordinator at their child’s school.

Financial support for this year’s leagues comes from El Monte City School District to provide organized sports opportunities for their school district’s youth who might not have the opportunity to play otherwise.

The emphasis of KidsPlay is to provide an opportunity to play, learn and develop confidence in learning new and healthy lifestyle skills. All El Monte City School District sites with ASPIRE and ASPIRE Plus programs field teams in the above mentioned sports at no cost to students.  Students register at their school site with their ASPIRE Site Coordinator.

KidsPlay is also open to any school wishing to participate in any of the the KidsPlay leagues for a fee.  To learn more about registering your non-ASPIRE school into our leagues, please email or call Salvador at (562) 945-0150.
