MCHS having fall sports parents information day

Moffat County School District Athletic Director Rick Schmitz has scheduled a parents night for all high school fall sports.

The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. Aug. 12 and will give parents a chance to meet the coaches of the fall sports teams — boys golf, boys and girls cross-country, football, volleyball, boys soccer and cheerleading — as well as discuss other information pertinent to the upcoming sports season.

Time running out for water aerobics classes at Craig pool

Residents looking to get a unique kind of exercise can attend water aerobics in shallow or deep water this summer.

Water aerobics offer a low-impact form of exercise, making it easier on bones and joints while still offering resistance to improve fitness and flexibility.

The classes run through Aug. 15 and will be at the Craig Swimming Complex, 605 Washington St. Shallow water classes will be from noon to 1 p.m. and from 6 to 7 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays during the summer. Deep water will be Tuesdays and Thursdays at the same times.

Those interested can sign up for an entire session ($45), both sessions ($80) or choose to attend individual classes, which will cost $4 each. For more information, call Craig Parks and Recreation at 970-826-2029.

Pool league in Craig begins Sept. 15.

The Craig Billiards Congress of America pool eight-ball league begins Sept. 15. League events take place at Popular Bar, 24 W. Victory Way.
