Frankfort Basketball Youth Travel League registering teams

By AARON KENNEDY - akennedy@ftimes.com

The Frankfort Basketball Youth Travel League is registering teams in grades 3 to 6 until the Sept. 21 deadline, and they can reserve their spot by emailing FHS head basketball coach Nate VanDuyne at vanduynen@frankfort.k12.in.us.

Games will be played in Frankfort High School’s Case Arena, the FHS Auxiliary Gymnasium, and Frankfort Middle School’s East and West Gymnasiums on Oct. 13, 20 and 27; Nov. 3, 10 and 17; and Dec. 1. Teams will have one or two practices each week.

Admission to the games will be $3 per person, and drinks, food and snacks will be available.

“Hosting the travel league is a big deal for us on many fronts,” VanDuyne said. “This opens the door for us to put multiple youth teams in competitive games against quality competition for seven weeks. It’s close, and it’s convenient, but it allows us to have maximum participation because of the limited travel for families. It also gives kids the opportunity to come in and experience playing in a large historic gymnasium with Case Arena and our other facilities. We are thrilled to get our younger kids in there playing, improving and getting excited about the opportunity to take part in the storied tradition here at Frankfort.”

A team may register to play in seven games for $150 per team, four double-headers and three single games for $225 per team or seven double headers for $285 per team. Those interested in creating an individual weekend schedule may contact coach VanDuyne for details.

Checks made payable to Frankfort Boys Basketball may be mailed to Frankfort High School by Oct. 1. An electronic invoice will be emailed after registration in received via email.

Those interested in coaching a team should contact coach VanDuyne before Aug. 31. Tryouts for players will be conducted in the Blue Ridge Elementary Gymnasium on Sept. 14.
