EDGE basketball registration

is continuing through Oct. 30

STEUBENVILLE — EDGE sports basketball registration is continuing until Oct. 30, according to a spokesperson from First Westminster Presbyterian Church.

The divisions will cap 80 spots for the boys’ division and 60 spots for each girls’ division. It is for students in grades one through six. The cost is $60.

The EDGE sports concept was formed seven years ago when several retired coaches were getting together for Bible study. “We wanted to reach kids and promote Christian core values and go beyond what they were learning on the court,” notes an explanation on the website, www.EdgeSportsOV.com, where registration is conducted. “We have involved the community through sponsorships, schools, coaches, chaplains and the church. Basketball is our hook — in our seventh season, we will again involved more than 275 kids.”

Players will be placed on teams, and players will be notified within the first two weeks of November. All players must attend one of two clinics at Steubenville High School. The clinic dates are:

Oct. 23: 11:30 a.m., grades one and two; 12:30 p.m., grades three and four; and 1:30 p.m., grades five and six.
