Annual basketball shootout set for this weekend Craig

The Elks Club of Craig is hosting its annual basketball shootout at Sandrock Elementary School gym Saturday.

The Elks Hoop Shoot will take place at 8 a.m. Sunday, after which the club will host a brunch and awards ceremony for all participants and parents at the Elks Lodge in Craig, 43 W. Victory Way.

The free-throw shooting contest is for boys and girls ages 8 to 13, and will have kids shoot 25 foul shots in two rounds. The winners in each age group will have the opportunity to compete in the district, state, regional and national hoop shoot, if they qualify.

Elks will cover the cost of any travel to further hoop shoots, including the nationals in Massachusetts.

Water Aerobics courses available to walk-ins

Craig residents looking to get a different kind of exercise are in luck.

Registration is open for water aerobics courses, which began Oct. 22 and run through Jan. 16.

For more information, call 970-826-2017.

Participants must pass a swim test before being allowed to take the lifeguard course, which will take place during the school’s winter break.

The swim test will be from 7 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, and therefore doubles as the last day to sign up for the training course.

There is a registration fee of $125. All of those who are interested should call Parks and Rec at 970-826-2017 to register.
