Registration soon will begin for a College Station basketball program for special-needs children.
Boys and girls ages 5 to 18 can enroll for the 2010 season from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. from Jan. 11 to Jan. 22 at the Stephen C. Beachy Central Park office, 1000 Krenek Tap Road. A link to the form can be found at www.eteamz.com/cspard/.
The program is $15 per player, and the season runs on Tuesdays and Saturdays from January to March at various College Station school gymnasiums.
The Challenger Basketball Program works to teach children about basketball, skills development and the value of team sports, officials said. Everyone is encouraged to participate, including those with walkers, wheelchairs and crutches.
Each player will receive a shirt and an award for participation.
The program is sponsored by the parks and recreation department and by the Texas A&M University chapter of Project Sunshine, which provides services to those with special needs.
