CASPER, Wyo. — Fourth- and fifth-grade students throughout Casper will soon have a chance to take part in interscholastic sports competition as the CASPER Basketball League is now open to these grades.

Kids will play on their school team, and practices are held once or twice per week at the child’s school. Parents and family members are asked to volunteer to coach for their child’s school. Background checks will be done for all volunteer coaches before practices begin. Games are scheduled on Saturdays at the Casper Recreation Center, and the basketball season will last six weeks.

Registration for a CASPER league is $20 per participant per sport. The Community Recreation Foundation provides financial registration assistance through scholarships if needed. Scholarship applications are available at the Casper Recreation Center, 1801 E. 4th St.
