It might still be football season, but a lot of youngsters in Lake Wales are beginning to think about the basketball season too.
That’s because the Lake Wales Police Athletic League basketball program signups have started. During the day, parents wishing to register their children can do so at American Insurance Services, 245 S. First Street, in Lake Wales, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. When registering, please have a copy of the child’s birth certificate available, as well as a wallet sized photo.
The registration fee is $40 per child, and PAL hoops is open to boys and girls ages 5 to 15.
There are also evening registration times that will be held at Washington Park and Kirkland Gym.
At the park, signups will be available from 6 to 7 p.m. on Oct. 8, 10, 15 and 17. At the gym, also from 6 to 7 p.m. registrations will be taken on Oct. 28, Nov. 4, Nov. 14 and Nov. 18.
The Jamboree will be Dec. 7, and the season will run from Dec. 14 to Feb. 8.
Also, on Nov. 13, there will be a special Orlando Magic clinic in Lake Wales.
