NEWS:  Now that winter has come to a close and the basketball season has ended, finding opportunities for your child to play basketball becomes difficult. There’s a new facility in town called, Downtown Sports (www.downtownsports.net ), that has basketball classes for ages- kindergarten through 6th grade. If you’re just looking for some time for your child to just shoot around, they offer “open court” each week for all ages ($10 for 2-3hours of free play), facility rentals for parties or team training and other activities. If you’re interested in checking out the programs, you can go to https://www.downtownsports.net/programs/smart-hoops . If you have questions about any programs, please contact Kevin or Rich at info@downtownsports.net .
