In Brief

Youth basketball camp coming up

A basketball camp open to youth players has been scheduled for the week of spring break at Forest Grove High School. The camp is slated to run from Monday, March 23, through Thursday, March 26, and is open to boys and girls in grades five through eight.

Campers will be split up into two divisions based on grade level, but sessions for all campers will run from 9 a.m. to noon each day.

Led by Forest Grove boys coach Greg Evers as well as coaches from the youth, junior high and high school levels, campers will work on fundamentals like shooting and ballhandling, play games and scrimmage against one another.

Cost is $30 per camper. The camp is in its sixth year. Last year, a record of 103 kids participated and Evers is hoping to increase that number. Register and sign the waiver form by going to http://goo.gl/1TN989 and following the respective links.

Local teams seek sponsorships

Two local youth sports teams are looking for businesses or individuals who can help with sponsorships for their respective seasons.

The Oregon Wild 10U softball team is made up of girls in grades three through five from Forest Grove and outlying areas. The team’s season runs from March through early July, and sponsorships help fund costs such as league memberships, uniforms and equipment, and tournament fees.

For more information on sponsoring the Oregon Wild 10U team, call 503-899-7203.

Another team seeking sponsorship assistance in the form of funding, products or services is the FC West 13U boys soccer team, which won a State Cup championship last year and will be representing Forest Grove in the National Premier League Finals this coming summer in Indiana.

The team, which has set a fundraising goal of $20,000, has set up a page where donations can be made at gofundme.com/fcwestsoccer.
