Youth hoops league sets tip off date

Staff Report

The Tallassee Recreation Department’s youth basketball league will tip off its season on Jan. 20. As of last Thursday, 62 players were signed up with registration fees paid.

Three divisions are planned for ages 6-12. Parents should expect phone calls this week with information on team assignments.

According to programs coordinator Tammy Merrett, practices will be at the Tallassee Recreation Center each week with games slated for Saturdays at Southside Middle School.

There will be an admission charge of $2 for adults and $1 for children.

Merrett expects at least 12 teams.  Games will be played on side court style in the SMS gym each week.  The season should conclude by late February.

“We should play six or seven games,” she noted. “If you are interested in coaching, please come by and complete an application form required for a background check.”
