Registration for the 2012 Ashe Youth Basketball League is set to begin on Saturday, Oct. 27.


For those that cannot make it on that day, there will also be a registration day on Saturday, Nov. 3. Registration on both days will be from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. Parents can register their children anytime at the Ashe County Parks and Recreation Office at Family Central. The office is open from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Nov. 3 is the final day to register.


Registration will take place at each of the three elementary schools, and is open to boys and girls in third grade through sixth grade. The fee to play this year will be $40.


A draft will be held at each elementary school after everyone has registered. Currently, Blue Ridge Elementary School will have its draft on Nov. 5. Third and fourth grade boys and girls will be placed on teams from 5:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. Fifth and sixth grade boys and girls will be put on teams from 7 p.m. until 8:30 p.m.


The draft times will be the same at Mountain View and Westwood, only the dates will be different. Mountain View teams will be drafted on Nov. 6 while Westwood teams will be drafted on Nov. 8.
