CHALLENGER PROGRAM

PVBA is proud to announce the inaugural season of Challengers Basketball!

The Challengers Basketball program is being created with help from PVBA so that boys and girls with physical and mental challenges can enjoy the game of basketball. The program is non-competitive - no scores are kept and the focus is on basketball fundamentals and fun.


Our season will run from December 8th to February 24th with a Winter Break from December 23rd thru to January 6th. Games will be played on Saturdays from 12:00 to 2:00 in the main gym at Miraleste Intermediate School.

Buddies will be community volunteers, ideally those with experience in the Challengers Football and Baseball programs. Buddies will partner with Challenger participants to ensure players a safe, fun, and memorable experience.

There will be no cost to Challenger participants. Jerseys and basketballs will be available.  Each parent need only provide transportation to and from the courts, and water for their player. Costs associated with Challenger Basketball are generously covered by the Palos Verdes Basketball Association, and by private donations.

If your child is interested in participating in Challengers Basketball, please check back on September 1st by which time our registration materials will be posted.

If you are interested in participating as a Buddy or would like to donate to the Challengers Basketball program, kindly email Steve Gherardi at sgherardi@hotmail.com or Quinn Mulkey at quinnmulkey@fastmail.com
