Emmetsburg Youth Basketball Tourney Set For This Weekend

By Staff | Feb 19, 2009

A Youth Basketball tournament for boys in grades four through six and girls in sixth grade is planned for this Saturday, Feb. 21, in Emmetsburg. The games will be played in both the Emmetsburg High School and new Middle School gymnasiums during the day.

Games will fetaure 14 minute halves, with five minute half time breaks. Each team will be guaranteed three games, and medals will be awarded to the top two teams in each age division. Game winners will meet for the age division championships.

To determine the age of participants, age will be determined by grade the player is currently enrolled in during the 2008-2009 school year.

Grade levels will play solely against teams in their own grade levels during the tournament.

A small admission fee will be charged for spectators during the tournament, which will begin at 8 a.m. Saturday.

Team enrollments are still available and can be made by contacting Shawn Connelly, 3006 1st Street, Emmetsburg Iowa, 50536, or at 712-852-3582.

The tournament will feature certified officials.
