Basketball league evaluations to be held Oct. 23.


Practices start in November, games in December.

MILTON, Ga., Oct. 20, 2011 - Don't forget that player evaluations for the City of Milton/Up With Kids Sports winter basketball league for boys and girls ages 6 to 13 will take place at Hopewell Middle School from noon to 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 23.

The basketball program, like the evaluations, will take place at Hopewell Middle School thanks to an intergovernmental agreement with the Fulton County School System. Cost for residents is $115 and $172.50 for non-residents. That price includes a uniform and once-weekly practices and games for an eight-game season, plus playoffs.

Practices start Nov. 1. Games start Dec. 3 and last through Feb. 11. Games will be held on Saturdays, though Sunday games may be necessary depending on participation. Practices will be held during the week and vary depending on team.

Three age groups exist based on current rosters: 6 to 7 year olds, 8 to 10 year olds and 11 to 13 year olds. This is subject to change based on final enrollment numbers.

There are also spots open for volunteer or parent coaches. For more information, contact Up With Kids Sports Founder Sam Himes at or 678-481-1749.
