The deadline is Wednesday to register for the Bend Park & Recreation District’s youth basketball league for the 2020 season. The league is open to boys and girls currently enrolled in third, fourth or fifth grade.

Teams are grouped by school and grade and are coached by trained volunteers. Coaches are still needed.

Practices are typically held twice per week in the evening at local elementary school gyms, and games are played on Saturdays. The youth league runs Jan. 6 through March 7. Each player receives his or her own game jersey.

Registration is available online at ­ or in person at the park district office, Juniper Swim & Fitness Center, The Pavilion, or Bend Senior Center. Hours vary at each location; the district office will be closed Monday in observance of Veterans Day.

For more information, contact park district sports coordinator Rich Ekman at 541-706-6126 or ­rich@­ .
