CLEARFIELD — The Clearfield Recreation Department will be doing its part to keep area youths busy during two upcoming school holidays with two 3-on-3 youth basketball tournaments.

One will be Jan. 21, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, and another on Feb. 18, Presidents Day.

"The Clearfield Challenge 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament 2008 will reach out to youth basketball players of all ages, boys and girls," said Clearfield City Recreation Supervisor Curtis Dickson.

"Our department understands that the enjoyment of basketball competition can begin in the early years, and we encourage youth to take advantage of opportunities such as these two tournaments."

The tournament divisions are: boys/girls 10 and under, boys/girls 12 and under, boys/girls 15 and under, boys/girls 18 and under.

The entry fee for each tournament is $40 per team. Each team consists of three or four players. Teams will be grouped by division, and each team is guaranteed three games.

Games will be played at the Clearfield Aquatic Center, and schedules will be available on Jan. 11 from noon to 5 p.m. by calling recreation at 525-2790.

Registration will be taken on a first-come, first-serve basis. Entry forms can be mailed or brought to the Clearfield City Municipal Building, 55 S. State.
