Youth sports return for fall

Sports are back in action throughout Boulder City. Youth coed soccer ended this week just in time for coed flag football and coed volleyball to begin. SDGE/Sempra utilities have sponsored the third- through eighth-grade football league, which will run Monday and Wednesday nights October through early December at Veterans’ Memorial Park’s Pratte Fields.

Youth coed volleyball will have games Tuesday and Thursday nights through November in the Parks and Recreation Department’s new gymnasium.

Kindergarten through second-grade floor hockey and third-grade through seventh-grade basketball is taking registration for their January start dates. The youth basketball clinic is scheduled from 9-11 a.m. Dec. 10 and the hockey clinic is slated from 9-11 a.m. Dec. 17. Both clinics will take place in the recreation center’s gymnasiums.
