Tri City Basketball is composed of kids from East Alton, Wood River and Roxana.
This program has two components: a 3-on-3 basketball league (second and third grade) designed to develop individual skills and basic fundamentals of the game, but in a team-setting by placing fewer players on the court at one time. There is also a 5-on-5 league (fourth to sixth grade) which is also designed to teach individual skills and fundamentals but with the traditional five players per team on the court.
Games will be played at the East Alton Keasler Complex or Roxana Community Gym. Games will be played on weeknights and Saturdays. There are no team registrations.
Free throw competition: Participants receive five free throws prior to each of their regularly scheduled games. Awards will be given to first- and second-place winners of their grade.
Includes: 10-game schedule, free throw competition, shoot-out and league shirts.
The fee is $35. A late fee will be added after the deadline Friday, Nov. 13. Candy sales are available for those who register at East Alton Keasler Complex.
Participants may register at Keasler Recreation Complex, 615 Third St., East Alton. For information, call (618) 259-7411.
