The Philomath Youth Activities Club is accepting registrations for the upcoming basketball season for students in grades 1 through 6, the organization announced.
The deadline to ensure a spot and avoid a late fee is Tuesday, Nov. 16.
“We are in real need of coaches and officials for the upcoming season so if you, yourself or anyone you can think of is willing to help make a difference in the lives of children please let us know and we would love to get you more information,” Eddie Van Vlack, PYAC executive director said.
For those interested, contact Van Vlack at [email protected] or 541-929-4040.
The following programs are available:
• Grades 1-2: Boys and girls in the first and second grades will be divided into four to six teams. They will have one weeknight practice and games will be played in Philomath on Saturdays. Coaches will notify players of practice schedules in late December. The season will start in January.
• Grades 3-4: Boys and girls play on separate teams. Teams practice two times on weekday evenings and games are held on Saturdays in Philomath. Coaches will notify players of practice schedules in late December. The season will start in January.
