Craig Sports Briefs for Nov. 21, 2014: Weekend hockey tourney canceled

Craig Youth Hockey Association's Midget team will not host its tournament planned for Saturday and Sunday at the Loudy-Simpson Park Ice Arena due to scheduling conflicts with visiting teams.

The team may host games for squads still coming to Craig, but these will be unofficial matches and will not count toward their regular season.

No youth basketball on Thanksgiving

Craig Parks & Recreation's youth basketball games for third- through fifth-graders will take place Monday and Tuesday next week at the normal times at Sunset and Sandrock elementary schools. Wednesday and Thursday games will not take place due to the Thanksgiving holiday.

Normal play will resume Dec. 1.

Hockey program still seeking players

Registration is still open for those wishing to be part of Craig Youth Hockey Association's Mites program available for children born from 2006 to 2008 wanting to learn the sport.

Sessions take place Tuesdays and Thursdays at Loudy-Simpson Park Ice Arena, 600 S. Ranney St. The first session has begun and runs through Dec. 18, and the second runs from Jan. 5 to Feb. 5.
