Youth basketball registration continues

Registration closes Dec. 1 for the Mount Hermon Association winter youth basketball league.

The league will take place in December and January for players of any skill level in first to sixth grades. Along with learning and playing the game, players will take part in a day of team-building on the ropes course.

First- and second-graders will play three-on-three co-ed games on a half court with a 9-foot rim, and third- and fourth-graders will play four-on-four co-ed games on a short full court. The fifth- and sixth-grade league will have a boys division and a girls division and play five-on-five, full-court basketball.
