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.
