Youth Basketball League and Junior Cheerleading announces record signup numbers

On the heels of a large turnout last year for the boys and girls youth basketball leagues and junior cheerleading sponsored by the Jackson Parish Recreation Department (JPRD) a record number of youth has signed up this year. 

“We have had an unbelievable response to the registration for the youth basketball and cheerleading this year,” said JPRD Director Tommy Smith. “Last year we had 220 kids sign up for basketball. This year the number is at 310 and the number that have signed up for cheerleading is up from 25 to 43.”

Smith states that even though the registration period is over that late registars will be taken over the next several days but once teams are formed and uniforms are ordered no youth will be able to added. For more information call 318-2597247.
