Registration under way for kids’ recreation basketball

Haywood County Recreation & Parks Department is now accepting registration for the Kids Recreation Basketball League.

Intended for ages 5-15, the recreation basketball league guarantees that each child will get the opportunity to play at least half of every game. The program focuses on learning the game where each age group has adapted rules to ensure the development of skills, such as 8-foot goals for ages 5-8.  

Registration fee includes a NBA replica jersey for each child to keep, practice one night a week, one practice game on Dec. 4, eight official games and a completion certificate. Practice begins the week of Nov. 15 and the last scheduled game is Feb. 12.  

Early registration of $40 for first child and $75 for two children ends Sept. 24.  Regular registration of $50 for first child and $95 for two children will be from Sept. 27 – Oct. 8. Registration forms are available online through the Recreation Department link at www.haywoodnc.net or at the Haywood County Recreation & Parks Dept. office at 81 Elmwood Way (former MARC Building). Scholarships are also available upon special request.
