Youth Basketball Returns

Evaluations for the St. Maries Church of the Nazarene’s Win 1 Basketball program are next week.

The program, formerly known as Upward, is open to boys and girls in kindergarten through sixth grade. Those who plan to participate, whether as a basketball player or cheerleader, must attend one of the evaluation sessions.

The first is from 4 to 7 p.m. Oct. 22 and the second is from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Oct. 24. Both will take place at the church’s gym. The cost is $45 per child.

Amy Scheer is heading up the Win 1 basketball and cheerleading program at the St. Maries Church of the Nazarene. The evaluation dates are next week, Oct. 22 and Oct. 24.

Amy Scheer is lead organizer for the program this year. Ms. Scheer returned to St. Maries six years ago and has been involved in the community since. She has coached teams at the church program for five years and high school volleyball at St. Maries High School.

“The big thing is our lead pastor needed some help and needed somebody with a little bit of time to organize it. I love the program and I love what it is about,” Ms. Scheer said.

The program is Christian-based and not only seeks to teach children about basketball but about Jesus as well, she added. This is the eighth year the church has organized the program.

Practices will start Jan. 4. Games begin the week of Jan. 29. There is usually one game Friday night and all others are played on Saturday. The season continues through March 12 with an end-of-season celebration March 13.

“We generally have 100 to 150 kids,” Ms. Scheer said. “We sent out almost 500 registration forms this year. It is open to any child in kindergarten through sixth grade.”

Those who are interested in coaching should contact the church, as a background check is required.

Call the church at 245-4594 or Ms. Scheer at 582-1271 for more information.
