Jerseyville Parks and Recreation Department (JPRD) is now taking registrations for the Girls & Boys Basketball Leagues. Both leagues are open to children currently in 1st through 6th grade. This will be the first year that the department has expanded the league to include first and second graders. The girls' league will run November and December and the boys' league will run January and February. Teams will be divided as follows: 1st/2nd, 3rd/4th and 5th/6th. Registration fee is $25 per child and includes a game shirt. Games will be played at the Susnig Center, located at 401 Mound Street, on Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday/Friday nights, Saturday mornings/afternoons and Sunday afternoons. Both league's success depends on parents as volunteer coaches. Both residents and non-residents of the city are welcome to participate in the league. Do not put it off; the registration deadline is Monday, October 1 for the girls' league and Monday, October 29 for the boys' league, so register now!
