Sports Briefs for Jan. 14, 2012: Mandatory youth basketball meeting set for Wednesday

Moffat County Youth Basketball will host a mandatory parents and players meeting at 6 p.m. Wednesday at Sandrock Elementary School, 201 E. Ninth St.

Any interested players and their parents must attend.

Players will register for their respective divisions. Boys and girls sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grade divisions are available.

All players must sign an insurance and liability waiver at the meeting.

A $50 registration fee and $20 uniform deposit must also be paid at the meeting.

Team entry into the Yampa Valley Classic Tournament in Craig is free, but the number of players who attend any out-of-town tournaments will divide the cost of tournaments evenly.

Boys teams will begin practice Jan. 23 and girls will begin practice in February.

No player will be allowed to practice or play in games without payment of fees and completion of medical and waiver forms.
