Youth basketball tryouts begin Sunday

The Chehalem Park and Recreation District is accepting registration for its youth basketball programs and will host tryouts on Sunday and Oct. 6 at Newberg High School. Players in fifth through eighth grades will tryout for teams competing in the Three Rivers League (TRL). Boys in fifth and sixth grades will tryout from 3 to 5 p.m., while seventh and eighth graders will go from 3 to 5:30 p.m., both in the main gym.

Girls will tryout in the auxiliary gym, with players in grades five and six going from 3 to 5 p.m. and seventh and eighth graders going from 3 to 5:30 p.m. Fifth and sixth grade players that don’t participate in the TRL may play in the Junior Tiger league, with a team placement clinic on Nov. 16. Each player must attend a minimum of one try-out to be eligible. Registration for the TRL is $149 per player and teams are responsible for uniforms. A non-refundable tryout fee of $20 must be paid before a player can participate, but will be applied to the registration fee if placed on a team. The remaining balance of the fee must be paid by Oct. 15 in order to be placed on a team. Players who will not be participating in the TRL will have their player fees applied for registration in the Junior Tiger basketball program, with all overpayments being refunded. For more information, call 503-537-2909 or visit www.cprdnewberg. org.
