FRN plans basketball tournaments

Randolph County Family Resource Network and America’s Promise Coalition will host the first annual Bounce out Substance Abuse Community Basketball Tournaments on April 12 and13 at Harman School in Harman.

The goals are to give area youth and residents the opportunity to play a sport they love and to help the organizations raise funds for substance abuse prevention activities throughout the county. The entry fee will be used to ensure that substance abuse prevention continues in the schools and throughout the county.

Tournament registration is due by March 28. Brackets will be released April 4. Teams are guaranteed at least two games per tournament with an entry fee of $100 per tournament team. Teams may be composed of middle school and high school students as well as adults. Coed teams are permissible. A total of 16 teams will be accepted on a first-come first-served basis.

Games will be played in two 16-minute halves with a running clock.

The clock will stay running at all times except for timeouts and during the last two minutes of the game in the second half if the game is within 15 points.

Registration forms are available at the FRN office, by email or may be downloaded off the Randolph County Family Resource Network Facebook page. Registration forms must be completed and mailed back to the FRN office no later than March 28.

More information is available at the FRN office at 304-636-4454.
