Signups underway for Marysville Parks & Rec youth basketball

MARYSVILLE — If your child is drawn to dribbling fast breaks down court and launching "nothing but net" two-pointers, you can sign up now for the city of Marysville Parks and Recreation Department's basketball league for youth in first through eighth grades.

The program focuses on developing fundamentals, teamwork and good sportsmanship for all in a recreation-league environment, according to Athletic Coordinator Dave Hall. Practices begin the first week of December, with games starting the first week of January of next year.

You can register online at www.marysvillewa.gov through Marysville Parks' ePlay service, new this year by grade and gender. The fee is $80 per child and signups end on Oct. 6, but the city's Parks Department encourages you not to wait until overtime to join its most-attended recreational league. Volunteer coaches are always needed.

"Our goals as a parks and recreation department are to help children have fun and discover what they are capable of achieving," Hall said. "Our league is tailored to give players an opportunity to hone their skills on the court, and the experience to advance to higher levels of play, while also having a good time."

For more information, please call Marysville Parks and Recreation at 360-363-8400, or email dhall@marysvillewa.gov.
