Soccer Registration TOMORROW!!

Registration begins tomorrow (May 1) for the City of Cerritos youth soccer league at the Cerritos Sports Complex from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. if you are a resident.  For non-residents, registration will open on May 8.  If this is your first time signing up, bring something to read and be prepared to wait!  Based on my own experience, the wait time is about an hour or more.  The process has improved slightly because the staff will now hand you a number and you wait for your number to be called instead of standing in a “Disneyland” line.  The fee is $45 and you get a jersey and a trophy at the end of the season.  The kids are divided by birth year so kids born in 2008 will be entering Rookie I and so forth.  The Cerritos Sports Complex is located at 19900 Bloomfield Ave., Cerritos.

If that’s not enough soccer for you, check out the AYSO (American Youth Soccer Organization) program.  Cerritos falls under Region 54.  Upcoming sign-ups are May 16 at Cerritos Park East.  Please check their website for more information.

PDA USA

Last week my toddler and I went on a field trip to PDA USA.  PDA USA stands for the Pacific Diving Academy located in Santa Fe Springs.  If you are familiar with this area, it’s located in an industrial area on Shoemaker and Excelsior.  When we were given the opportunity to go on this field trip last year, I was hesitant to take my little one because I thought she would be too young.  She was only 1.5 then but surprisingly, she LOVED it!  The PDA is a gym that offers classes and training for tumbling, gymnastics, and diving.  Often times, when you enroll in tumbling classes through the City of Cerritos, it is through PDA.  There are trampolines, balance beams, a big foam “pool”, and an assortment of tumbling apparatus.  They have classes for children as young as one.  If you are unsure whether this activity is right for your child, they have open play on M/W/F from 10 a.m.-11a.m.  Once a month they also have “Parent’s Night Out”, where your child can play there from 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.  The price is $15 per child and includes pizza and a drink.  Lastly, they also have summer camps if you’re looking for activities to keep your kids busy this summer.

SJSCC

SJS what? Yes, that stands for the Southeast Japanese School and Community Center.  This community center has been around since 1925.  They are a non-profit organization with a variety of activities that are open to anyone regardless of race or religion.  Even though they’ve been around for almost a decade, we just learned of this organization last year when my son participated in their Rascals program.  Rascals is a basketball program that teaches young kids the fundamentals of basketball. Kids are divided into groups by gender and age.  They have just started accepting applications for the Summer session, which begins on June 3rd.  If you are interested, applications are due by May 15th.  You can download the application from their website. Space is limited and this program is very popular so turn in your applications soon!  Don’t be lame like me–I missed the deadline last fall so my son didn’t get to play. oops.

SJSCC also offers a variety of other programs.  I have not personally experienced any of them with the exception of Rascals but my friends have and say they are a blast.

Baseball league

Basketball season is in full swing for my 6 year old.  It’s so much fun watching the little ones play, mishaps and all.  My son has finally figured out which hoop he is supposed to shoot at!  The league is sponsored by the City of Cerritos Recreation program.  My son has participated in all the sports through the city and I think they are a wonderful platform for any budding athletes.  Today is also the first day of registration for baseball in the spring.  Please see attached flyer for all the details.

See you at the ballgame!
