Players, volunteers sought for Special Olympics

Players and volunteers are invited to join this season of Special Olympics Basketball, which is designed to teach children fundamentals of the game of basketball in a safe and structured way.

The activity also provides a good social network; children of varied skill levels may participate.

Some may compete in 3-on-3 half-court games, and others will work on and improve their passing, catching and shooting skills on a skills team (no running).

Basketball begins at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at Lawson Elementary School in Jefferson City.

If parents are interested in signing children up or teachers/parents would like to volunteer, they can contact Rebecca Cassmeyer at 573/659-3139.
