[ARCHIVED] Community Services Department Launches New Girls’ Sports Campaign

New Girls Basketball League

The Community Services Department is launching the “Play Like a Girl” social media campaign and invites individuals in the Malibu community to share their epic girls’ sports moments on social media with the #PlayLikeAGirlMalibu hashtag. The campaign aims to encourage girls of all ages to participate in the City’s wide offerings of youth sports classes, and also provide a platform for girls’ sports programs to be highlighted in the community. 

The #PlayLikeAGirlMalibu campaign kicks off with a new Girls Basketball League for Winter 2018 for grades K-8 with teams competing in divisions based on grade (K-1; 2-3; 4-5; and 6-8). The program emphasizes participation, fun, and sportsmanship, including minimum playing time requirements. 

Registration for the new girls basketball program is now open online at or in person at Bluffs Park or City Hall - the registration deadline is Friday, October 12. Games will take place on Saturdays beginning December 1, with practice days to be chosen by a volunteer coach. Parents are expected to volunteer as coaches, assistant coaches and team parents.
