Woonsocket YMCA accepts signups for youth hoop league

WOONSOCKET - The Greater Woonsocket YMCA is currently accepting registrations for its youth basketball league for children ages 5-17 and its three divisions that are based on the ages of the players and their abilities.

The Rookie League will focus on skills, drills, and teamwork for both boys and girls ages 5-8. The College League will continue to improve those skills and is designed for participants ages 9-12, and the Pro League, for players ages 13-17, is a co-ed basketball program intended to prepare participants for the next level in basketball.

Participants registered for the College League are required to attend a team evaluation on Saturday, Oct. 18, from 9 to 11 a.m. Pro League participants will be evaluated that same day from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., and there are no evaluations necessary for the Rookie League.

All three leagues will begin on Saturday, Nov. 8.
