Hoops for high school

Registration deadline is Wednesday for the upcoming new high school basketball league at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Wyoming. The youth league is open to all boys and girls in kindergarten through 6th grade, while the high school league is for those in grades 9-12.

The high school league will hold games on Saturdays at the Boys & Girls Club with the season beginning on Jan. 20, 2018 and running through March. Registration is $15 per child plus a club membership.

With more than 250 kids expected to register, volunteer coaches are needed to make the season a success. Experience is not required, but a general knowledge of the sport is helpful. Coaching is more than teaching a sport. It’s being a trusted mentor for youth and being able to instill a sense of good sportsmanship in the players.

If you have any questions about the leagues or would like to volunteer to coach, contact Jake Wilson at 235-5694, ext. 3.Follow community news editor Sally Ann Shurmur on Twitter @WYOSAS
