Grasshopper  basketball registration open for 5th – 8th grade

Camp Verde Parks and Recreation announces that registration is open for our popular youth Grasshopper Basketball Program. This program for boys and girls in 5th thru 8th grade is a fun way to learn basketball and teamwork. Co-ed teams of boys and girls, led by volunteer coaches, are grouped by grade level and practice one night per week and compete on Saturday mornings. Smaller sized basketballs are used to make the game more enjoyable and successful for the kids. Volunteer coaches are always needed for these teams. Coaching experience is not required, only the desire to help your kids and others have a good time. Parents interested in coaching should sign their kids up early and check the coaching box on the form. A skills evaluation will be held on January 13 to enable coaches to draft teams.

Online registration is only $40 per child and $35 for each additional child from the same family and includes a uniform jersey. Paper or late registration is $5 more. Partial scholarships are available to help those in need courtesy of funding provided by the Kiwanis Club of Camp Verde with $10 needed for registration. Register on-line with the link on our Parks & Recreation home page at campverde.az.gov or click the blue Book Now button on Facebook at Town of Camp Verde Parks & Recreation.

Registration information flyers are available through the schools or can be picked up at Parks & Recreation. Games are scheduled to start Saturday, January 19 and the Tournament will finish in early March. For more information or to register come to Parks & Recreation at 395 S. Main St. or call (928)554-0820.

MERRI MORNINGS AT THE MUSEUM
Dec 4 @ 10:30 am
Folks of all ages are welcome at the Clarkdale Historical Society Museum located at 900 First North Street in historic downtown Clarkdale. The society and museum is pleased to announce the expansion of its educational programs to reach folks from 3 to 103! Merri Mornings at the Museum is a new program for pre-school age children accompanied by adults to learn what a museum is, what manners to have when visiting a museum and how to enjoy their first museum experience. This monthly, self-guided, one-hour activity is held on the first Wednesday of each month from 10:30 to 11:30am beginning on October 2, 2019.

 

While sharing the history of Clarkdale, there is also emphasis on the manners that are required for young children when visiting such an institution.  “Manners at the Museum”, a hand-out for parents and children, outlines the use of technical devices, what to bring and what not to bring into the museum setting, touching, behavior and what interesting objects to look for in the exhibits that children can relate to.  Each child attending the program geared to 3-5 year-olds receives a complimentary color book to take home as a remembrance of their own.  “Mr Clark Build A Town” features beautiful line drawings by local artist Sheila Edelen which she created from historic photographs from the museum’s collection.

 

This new program has arisen out of the new five-year strategic plan recently adopted by the organization and is made possible by a gift from an anonymous contributor.  New books and products for children are being added to the CHSM Store as well.

 

It is the goal of the CHSM Public and School Programs and Events Team to provide educational programs to museum members, guests and visitors of all ages. History inspires learning; Learning completes history!

 

Contributions designated to support educational programs are always welcome and gratefully accepted. Business sponsors are currently being sought to underwrite educational activities. Please direct such interest by email to [email protected] and in the subject line list attn: Public and School Programs and Events Team.  For information about the museum and educational programs for adults, please see www.clarkdalemuseum.org/events .

Free Basketball Camp for 6-8th graders
Dec 9 @ 7:00 pm
Free Basketball Camp for 6-8th graders

Jingle Ballers Basketball Camp is a FREE camp for ALL middle school kids in the Verde Valley area! 7th graders are no longer able to play on the B team so a lot of kids are missing out on a whole year of basketball. I designed this camp to make sure kids get the game-like play they need as well as develop skills and have fun of course! More information will be provided once I hear back about the facility, I’m planning on two nights a week for two hours. The first hour will be spent on ball handling, shooting, special skills, and some games. The second hour will be spent on quick 3v3 games. We will play a ton of games a night so they can put their skills to the test!
REGISTRATION IS OPEN NOW! Again it’s FREE I would just like a head count going into it. You can sign up through this link: https://forms.gle/4V6vdNSujMfTZJGNA
