Anderson youth basketball league targets at-risk children

ANDERSON, Ind. (AP): A new Anderson youth basketball league is making a splash in its first year of existence.

The (Anderson) Herald Bulletin reports that a seventh-grade girls’ team from the Anderson Basketball Association will play in a national tournament in Atlanta this summer.

The Lady Heat’s coaches say the program for elementary and middle school boys and girls balances athletics with academics while filling a void in the hours after school and during the summer.

About 150 players are enrolled in the program this year.
