Basketball Clinic 6 July
The new basketball court is almost done! The court was paved and striped last week, and additional topsoil is being tampered and grass seed spread. Construction fencing was replaced by temporary fencing on two sides of the court.
The asphalt is settling and will be ready for players in a few weeks. No vehicles can be parked there this season!
The opening date will be July 4. A signup form for the July 6 Basketball Clinic can be accessed here, and we encourage interested families to fill out the registration form by June 21 to help with our headcount and number of volunteer coaches.
Many members have stopped by to express their enthusiasm while the Basketball Court committee has been working, and we appreciate your understanding and patience a bit longer.
