SHAMOKIN — Signups for the Shamokin Youth Girls Basketball League are underway for the organization’s 16th season.

Interested girls from Shamokin, Mt. Carmel, Southern Columbia and Line Mountain school districts from second through ninth grades are eligible to play.

League president Bob Getchey said he believes it’s important for girls around the area to have an organization that helps them grow as basketball players and encouraged all athletes to register for the season.

He said girls that are involved with other basketball organizations, swimming, band or other extracurricular activities can still participate in the league.

“We would like every girl to get a chance to play,” he said.

The first signup will be held Wednesday from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Shamokin Area Middle-High School.

Any questions may be directed to Getchey at 570-898-3667.
