Registration is now underway for the Western Springs Recreation Department’s 5th and 6th grade basketball league. Children must live in Western Springs or attend school in District #101, #106 or St. John of the Cross. Pre-registration is required and may be done at the Recreation Offices, 1500 Walker Street, by mail or fax. Go to www.wsprings.com/recreation for the separate registration form and complete information, or call 708-246-9070. The fee is $130.00 and the deadline is November 5. Boys and girls teams are formed around their school and compete on Saturdays beginning December 6. All who register are placed on teams – no cuts. Games will be played between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. at either the Recreation Center (1500 Walker) or McClure Jr. High (4225 Wolf). The league finishes with a tournament in March. The program will improve basketball skills, develop friendships, emphasis sportsmanship, and positively impact the child’s physical stamina. Volunteer coaches are needed. A Coaches Organizational meeting is scheduled Wednesday, November 5, 6:30 p.m. and training is provided.
