Greater Riviera council offers sign-up for sports


January 13, 1995|By PEG ADAMARCZYK

The calendar may say winter, but the organizers of local sports groups say their minds are wandering ahead to spring and a new season.

One of this area's largest registration sessions for spring and summer sports, conducted by the Greater Riviera Recreation Council, is right around the corner.

"Our goal is to keep youngsters off the streets and away from drugs or activities that might lead to trouble," said Elmer Hohman, council president. "Participation in organized sports programs is one means to this goal."

For busy parents, this registration is a big time-saver because it covers six different programs in three sports at one site -- Sunset Elementary School.

Sign-ups will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Jan. 21 and 28, and Feb. 4 and 11. Evening registration also will be offered, from 7 o'clock to 8:30 on Feb. 1 and 8.

Players must furnish copies of their birth certificates. Late registrations may be assessed an additional fee.
