March Madness hits Westlake Rec
As March comes in like a lion, our thoughts turn to longer days, warmer temperatures and, of course, MARCH MADNESS! The Westlake Recreation Department once again will hold its annual March Madness 3-on-3 Youth Basketball Tournament. This year’s event will take place on Tuesday, March 15, for the girls and Saturday, March 19, for the boys.
This tournament is open to any boys and girls in grades 3 through 8. The teams will compete in the following grade divisions: 3rd/4th, 5th/6th, and 7th/8th. This is a double-elimination tournament and each team is guaranteed at least two games.
Each team may have up to and no more than 4 players on their roster. Obviously any 3 players may play at one given time. Each game consists of no more than 15 minutes or 15 points, whichever comes first.
Registration packets are available at the Westlake Recreation Center or online at www.cityofwestlake.org/recreation/index.aspx (click on March Madness Information). The cost per team is $65 if at least 2 players are members of the Westlake Recreation Center; if not, the cost is $75.
Deadline to register teams is Thursday, March 10. For more information please contact Jim Dispirito at 440-617-4420. Last year the tournament had well over 130 teams total for both boys and girls. Don’t get left out in the cold, join the MADNESS!
