The annual McPherson Fall Basketball League begins play Sunday, Sept. 7, at the Roundhouse under the guidance of Bullpup coach Kurt Kinnamon.

Spots are still available for the following times:

• Girls K-3 — 1 p.m.

• Boys K-3 — 1 p.m.

• Girls 4-6 — 2 p.m.

• Boys 3-5 —  2 p.m.

• Girls 7-8 — 3 p.m.

• Boys 6-8 — 3 p.m.

The league offers players the opportunity to improve their basketball skills in a learning environment. Players will participate in skill building stations and then participate in game situations.

Beginners will have special emphasis on the rules of basketball and will play on 8-foot goals.

Skills taught at all ages include proper shooting form, ballhandling, moving without the basketball, defensive positioning and offensive spacing. During game situations, coaches will provide on-court instruction.

There is a fee charged. For more information, contact Kinnamon at 620-755-4646.
