(SBWSA) is sponsoring a <br /> basketball league for boys and girls in grades five through eight who live within the <br /> Weed & Seed boundaries, (Arnold St. on the east, Sheridan St. on the west, Sample St. on <br /> the south and the railroad tracks to the north. League teams will consist of 3 on 3 or 5 on <br /> 5 players. <br /> Registration is currently taking place at the Charles Black Recreation Center, <br /> 3419 W. Washington Street. Games will be played at the Center during spring break, <br /> April 2-5, 2007. In addition to learning sportsmanship and fundamentals of basketball, <br /> the youth will learn some lessons on the adverse affects of becoming involved in criminal <br /> activities. <br /> Partial funding for this project is being provided by a Department of Justice grant <br /> that Weed & Seed previously received. However, to help offset the cost of uniforms for <br /> the players, the Weed& Seed Alliance is seeking sponsorship from businesses and <br /> individuals willing to help promote positive activities in the community. Some sponsors <br /> have been found, but more are needed. Sponsorship of a team is $125. Benefits to <br /> sponsors include company name and logo on the team shirts and trophies,recognition at <br />
