FORMATION OF TEAMS: Will be formed based on the girl's current grade level. Teams consist of combined grade level teams, so for instance, on a single team, you will have older and younger players.

2nd and 3rd grades – games will be played at Gardena Municipal Gym
4th and 5th grades – games will be played at Gardena Municipal Gym

Note: The first game will begin at Municipal Gym at approximately 1:15 pm.
If you have any questions, please contact Stacy Tomita at
We will also be looking for volunteers to assist with the league.  Since we are not having an 8th grade division, FOR girls in the 8th grade can volunteer to assist an older FOR girl as a coach.  We are primarily interested in getting coaches, scorekeepers and referees to assist this year.  Volunteers are open for 8th graders (asst coaches) and 9th grade to 12th grade (head coaches, scorekeepers and referees).  Volunteers will be given credit for community service hours.
Girls interested in volunteering should contact Glenn and Patty Nakamura at the following email
