Weekend Basketball Tournament at Sorrentino
The annual Parks and Recreation Millennium Basketball Tournament will start on Saturday, December 12 at 3:45p.m. for the 10 and under division. The 11 to 13 year old division plays their first games at 6:30p.m and 7:45p.m. The age 14-16 division will start games on Wednesday night at 6:45p.m.
Staff and children at Sorrentino are bursting with enthusiasm and are anxious for the tournament to begin. The teams from all divisions were derived from a pool of children that attend basketball clinics at Sorrentino. For each division there will be three teams made up of Sorrentino basketball clinic participants as well as one team from each division representing the Arverne section of Rockaway.
Everyone at Sorrentino is focusing on a successful future with the basketball clinic participants and coaches Bernard Robinson, Stan Brown, John Middleton and Robert Lindo. Practices are held on Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays where the coaches work hard teaching children the fundamentals and discipline of basketball.
From now until the end of the tournament, Mondays and Fridays 3p.m. to 5p.m. will be the primary practice days.
The clinics are open to all levels of talent and participants need to be prepared to work hard and learn. It’s what is called "serious fun."
Parents are encouraged to attend and support their children and the program during the clinics and games. Parents are also asked to see that their children are on time for the clinics and games.
