The Douglas County Parks and Recreation Department is extending registation for the 1999-2000 seventh-and eighth-grade boys and girls youth basketball leagues. There will be a separate league for the boys and the girls. Registration will run through Nov. 12. The league is for beginners to advanced players and will emphasize skill development and fun competition. Participants will be assigned to a team by random selection. The fee is $48 per player, which includes the team T-shirt, awards and officials. The season is planned to begin the first week in December and run into March with games to be played on Saturdays.
Community volunteer coaches are needed to coach the teams. To volunteer to coach, call the Parks and Recreation Department or indicate this on your child's registration form. Registration will be handled at the Douglas County Parks and Recreation Department, 1327 Waterloo Lane, across from Lampe Park in Gardnerville. For information, call 782-9828.
