This league is open to boys and girls in grades three through eight. Volun- teer coaches will teach bas- ketball skills and concepts while promoting teamwork and good sportsmanship. "The goal of this league is to teach the fundamentals of basketball while provid- ing the participants with a fun and enjoyable experi- ence," said Sports Coordi- nator Jeren Seibel. Teams will practice throughout the month of December with games be- ginning in January and lasting through February. The season will begin with a mandatory skill clinic for each division Nov. 27 at Quincy High School. Volunteer Coaches and as- sistants are needed in all di- visions. There will be a re- inforced focus this season on the balancing of teams, so the recreation district will no longer be able to ac- commodate requests for players to be placed with certain coaches and/or friends. In addition, the fin:st- and second-grade basketball program registrations are going on now. This program meets once a week 'on Wednesday evenings, at ei- ther Quincy Elementary or the fairgrounds, depending on the size of the group. This program focuses on in- troducing kids to the basics of basketball, and is run in more of a clinic format. To sign up a child, go to the recreation district office at 34 Fairground Road, in Quincy. For more informa- tion, call the district at 283- 3278. rans The annual Veterans Day Parade in Greenville will be Sunday, Nov. 11, at 11 a.m. Entry is always free, and participants will receive ribbons as tokens of appre- ciation for showing their support.
