United Boys & Girls Clubs offer a variety of activities & sports for kids to participate.
We also have daily activities in the gyms such as: Dodgeball, Baseball, Flag Football, Basketball, Over the Line, Steal the Bacon, Tug-a-War, Soccer, and much more. These games are organized by our staff and we encourage the entire club to participate in the games, so each kid has some exercise for the day. In all of our sport programs, we strive to teach our youth that school work comes first, and that they need to take school seriously. Behavior is just as important as school to us, because when you wear the United Boys & Girls Clubs uniform, you represent all of Santa Barbara County.
Out of all the sports programs we offer, Tackle Football is the most well known in Santa Barbara County. We are part of the Tri Valley Youth Football League and play against Santa Barbara, Lompoc, Vandenberg, Santa Ynez, El Rio, Ojai, and Nipomo. The fee is $175 which includes everything except the jersey, which we encourage the teams fundraiser to cover the cost. Our tackle football program is one of the most competitive programs around and we strive to teach the right way to play football to get our players ready to play at the High School level. Tackle football is in season from August through November.

There are two different squads the Junior Squad & the Senior Squad. The cost for this program is $75 plus must be a current member of the club. Uniforms are not included.
Our In-house Basketball league is a local league that we run in the United Boys & Girls Clubs. We have four different divisions and, on average, about four teams in each division. The Biddy Division is for Kindergartner's to second graders, the Hot Shots is for third graders to fourth graders, the Gunners are for fifth through sixth graders, and the Majors is for seventh through eight graders.

The Indoor Soccer league is very exciting with two different divisions.
