Recreation Roundup


Fifth- and sixth-grade basketball begins in February

This is a great opportunity for both boys and girls to learn the game of basketball in a low-stress, fun instructional atmosphere. Registration will be held through Jan. 19. Participation fee is $20 per child and includes a basketball jersey and end-of-the-season pizza party. Separate boys and girls divisions will be offered if enough girls sign up. Head coaches' children play for free, so volunteer to coach! Games begin in February and will be played during the week and some Saturdays at the Rim Country Middle School. Those who register after the deadline for their age group will be placed on a team only if space permits. Call 474-5242 ext. 7 for more information.
