It’s time to get ready for indoor sports, and Urbana Park District has a great program to help get kids ready for the basketball season.
Pre-Season Shooters Youth Basketball is for boys and girls in grades 3 – 6, and runs Saturdays from October 9 to November 13. Grades 3 – 4 boys and girls learn and play from 2:30 – 3:55 p.m. Grades 5 – 6 boys and girls learn and play from 4 – 5:30 p.m.
All sessions are at Brookens Gym.
