Summer basketball league
It's time to sign up for the 2013 Westfield Summer Basketball League season.
There will once again have two leagues - an A league which will be a very competitive league, and a B league which will be a more recreational league. However, unlike last year, both leagues will be a register-own-team league.
The league staff will have final say on which league a particular team enters. Also, priority will be given to teams that have competed in the past.
Games will be played at Westfield Academy and Central School.
In order to play in the league participants must have appropriate behavior both on the court and on school grounds, respect all of the property at the school and respect officials and understand they're doing their best. Failure to do any of this will result in removal from the league.
The prices to play for the 2013 season will be $40 for Westfield residents and $50 for all others. All money goes to league officials, to pay the staff who run the league and league awards.
It is highly recommended teams get sponsors, or at least partial sponsors, so it doesn't cost each individual person as much. Sponsors will get various public relations through Facebook and in the gym.
To sign up a team, contact Andrew Webster by phone at 753-6842, email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or via Facebook. The deadline for signing up is Saturday, June 1.
