Bulldog men’s basketball to conduct Sunday youth basketball league this fall

SEWARD, Neb. – Under the direction of first-year head coach Ben Limback, Concordia men’s basketball will conduct a Sunday night youth basketball league on campus beginning this fall. The league, which is open to boys in grades three through eight, will get started on Sunday, Sept. 15 and continue on every Sunday through Oct. 27.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for boys in grades three through eight to enhance their basketball skills and compete against players of similar ages,” Limback said. “Led by Concordia coaches and players, it promises to be competitive and focused on youth development – all in a Christian environment.

“Not only is this a great avenue for youth basketball development, it also gives aspiring young coaches in our basketball program the opportunity to get hands on experience.”

Players sign up individually and are placed on a team based on evaluations the first night. Each Sunday from then on will consist of a 30-minute practice and two league games. A league tournament will be held the last night, Oct. 27. The cost of participation is $60, which includes a league t-shirt.
