The league plays every Saturday through Dec. 19 (excluding Nov. 28). Seventy-seven youngsters in grades 4-6 are playing on 11 JPRD teams. There are 52 teams total in the league includingÂ young athletes from Paton-Churdan, Ogden, Southeast Valley, Perry and Stratford. The Greene County Community Center will host eight half-court games each Saturday starting at 9 am.
The coaches are all volunteers. In Jefferson, the games provide high school players an opportunity to see they game from another angle – they don’t coach, but they officiate.
JPRD assistant director Sean Ostendorf handled the scheduling for the entire league.
