WYC UPDATES for week beginning Nov 5, 2018

After a productive monthly WYC Board of Directors meeting on Monday, November 5th the following are updates on 4 of our offered programs:

Biddy Basketball: Practices will begin on Tuesday, November 27th for (k-2) players from 3-4pm in the WCS Auditorium. The (5-6) players will practice from (4:15pm-5:30).

The (3-4) players will begin practices on Wednesday, November 28th from 3-4pm and the (5-6) will follow them from 4:15-6pm.

Practices will remain the same times and days for each level throughout the season. The schedule will be released when I receive it. The Coaches for the teams will be as follows:

Dana Marshall and Garrett McQueen (K-2); Livy Hatch and VACANT (3-4); David Reynolds and David Napper (5-6). Thank ALL the Coaches for stepping up and volunteering. We are still in need of a 3-4 Coach.

Ski Program: Sign-up will be AT THE TOWN HALL on December 6th from 3pm-6pm. ALL youth who are interested in this great Ski/Ride Program must complete the registration if they have not already for another sport AND get their picture taken. Ashley Duke will be taking the lead on this program and can be reached on 608.633.8114.

The Ice Rink at Ballard Park: The huge cover for the ground/bottom of the ice has been moved from the Town Hall to Ballard Park. Currently David Reynolds is working with Ballard Park and WYC to gather volunteers to literally roll this out and begin to create our Town Ice Rink for 2018-19. Clearly, 100% of the success of this rink is based on 2 factors: Cold enough weather and Volunteers for our community to help build it and maintain it. As the weather gets colder, there will be more posted on specific dates to support this venue.
