Green Hills Recreation Association to distribute applications for youth basketball league

Green Hills Recreation Association

The Green Hills Recreation Association will distribute registration forms for its youth recreation basketball league to area schools this week.

The league is open to children from age four to sixth grade and consists of boys and girls teams from the communities in the Green Hills region. Boys and girls residing in Grundy County will be placed in a draft for teams. Children from outside the county can request to be included in the draft.

Other communities may form their own teams to facilitate practices locally and reduce travel. Players will be responsible for having a regulation size basketball and indoor gym shoes to participate.

Registration forms can also be found at American Family Insurance or the Grundy County Health Department in Trenton on the Green Hills Recreation Association Facebook page. They may be returned to American Family Insurance or the Grundy County Health Department. They may also be mailed to the Green Hills Recreation Association at post office box 202 in Trenton, zip code 64683.

The deadline to register is November 10 and the fee per child is $30, which includes a T-shirt and participant insurance. The Green Hills Recreation Association provides registration fee scholarships to help eligible youth participate in sports programs through the association. The scholarships provide assistance to youth from low-income families.

Scholarship funds come from donations made to the recreation association.
