Journalism. We believe it should help you live a better life.

That’s why we spend a lot less time on publishing mug shots and a lot more time helping you understand the employment market, figure out how to spend more time with friends and family with our events calendar, and what you can do to help businesses that have opened up. Make no mistake…we aren’t shy. We tackle the big stuff, like COVID and issues around race.

And if you believe in the value of journalism — that it should help, not exploit — please consider becoming a paid member of the Racine County Eye today. We can’t do this work without you.

City of Racine Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services (PRCS) will host three evening registrations for the Fall/ Winter Youth Hoops Basketball Program.  Evening registration is designed specifically for the measuring and testing of players in grades 5 – 8 and will be held on September 6, 11, and 19 from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. at the Chavez Community Center, 2221 Douglas Ave in Racine.  Players in 5th – 8th grade are only required to attend one evening registration date and may visit anytime between 5:30 and 7:30 p.m.

Registration forms are available on-site or may be obtained prior to registration at any of the five City of Racine Community Centers (Bryant, Chavez, King, Humble Park, and Tyler-Domer), the PRCS main office (800 Center St., Room 127), and at cityofracine.org/ParksRec/.  Registration forms must be completed by a parent/guardian.

PRCS Youth Hoops leagues are available for boys and girls in grades 2-8.Youth in grades 2 – 4 may register at the evening dates or at the PRCS main office, 800 Center St., Room 127, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The player registration fee for all ages is $40 for City of Racine Residents and $60 for Non-City Residents.  The registration fee includes a team t-shirt.  A late fee of $10 will be added to registrations submitted after September 24, 2018.

Early registration is recommended as leagues fill fast. Prior participation does not guarantee placement in the PRCS Youth Hoops Program. Players from established teams (with the exception of 5th grade) may request and may be reassigned to their 2017-2018 teams provided they are registered before September 24, 2018, and that openings remain in the leagues.  5th grade players are assigned based on skill evaluation and height.

Youth in 1st grade may register in the 2nd grade leagues after September 19, 2018 provided space is available at that time. No late fee will apply to 1st grade participants.
