Camp Verde Grasshopper Basketball League Registration Now Open | Independent Verde

CAMP VERDE – The Parks and Recreation Department at Camp Verde recently announced that registration is now open for another season of the city’s Grasshopper youth basketball program, according to a press release.

The program is aimed at boys and girls in grades one to four and is “a fun way to learn basketball and teamwork,” a press release said.

Mixed teams of boys and girls, led by volunteer coaches, are grouped by grade level and train one evening a week and compete on Saturday mornings. The league is intended for children to have fun, learn the basics of basketball and develop teamwork.

Lower baskets are used as well as smaller sized balls to make the game more enjoyable and successful for children. The league will have an evaluation session and a draft this season. The assessment session will take place in the gymnasium of the community center on Monday, October 11, starting at 5:30 p.m. for first and second year students and coaches.

“Volunteer coaches are always needed for these teams. Coaching experience is not required, only the desire to help your kids and others have a good time, ”a press release said. “Without enough coaches this program is not possible.”

Parents interested in becoming coaches should contact the Parks and Recreation Department as soon as possible at the coordinates provided below.
