The Town of Wrightsville Beach Parks and Recreation department will offer a new youth basketball league during fall 2014.
Games will be held every Thursday and will consist of two 20-minute halves in a four-versus-four or five-versus-five format. The league will include one age group for children ages 6-9, and another group for ages 10-13.
Katie Ryan, parks and recreation program supervisor, said the league would be instructional and focus on teamwork and fundamentals such as shooting, ball handling and passing.
“It’s a new league this year, but it’s led by the same basketball instructor who did our summer league,” Ryan said during an Aug. 19 phone interview.
Both children and adults may also sign up for group, private or semi-private tennis lessons.
Fitness classes such as Zumba, pilates, power yoga, and tone strengthen and stretch will be offered again in the fall, although the extreme cross training class will now be called core strengthening.
“The class will be very similar, but we feel like the extreme cross training name may sound a little intimidating,” Ryan said. “It’s good for any age and the instructor adjusts to the needs of the individual.”
In addition to the athletic leagues and classes, the fall program schedule will also include kids’ cooking classes, performance club and an after-school program for Wrightsville Beach School.
