Attention all third, fourth and fifth grade boys and parents: The “Future Aces” Youth Basketball League is back.

The first of seven sessions will be held on Sunday, Jan. 5 at Mt. Carmel High School, and will be run by the Golden Aces basketball staff and players.

Application forms were sent home with third-through-fifth grade students last week, and need to be completed and returned by Dec. 31.

The league will once again feature a fundamental “skill building” session followed by game play. Teams will be coached by Aces staff and players. Head coach Tyler Buss said the YBL is “a valuable tool in the building of the Aces basketball program and will help ensure your child is being taught the correct fundamentals that MCHS coaches feel are vital to the development of all players.”
