The Corpus Christi Parks & Recreation Department invites the media for a photo opportunity of its summer 2018 Mini-Dribbler Co-Ed Basketball League.

WHAT: The Mini-Dribbler Basketball League runs from July 9 to 25. Boys and girls ages 3 to 5 participate in these games. The league offers very young players the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of the sport, such as how to dribble, shoot and pass on a modified court to accommodate their size.

WHO: 40 boys and girls are participating in the league.

WHERE: Corpus Christi Gym, located at 3202 Cabaniss Parkway.

WHEN: Best time for media is Monday, July 23, from 6 to 7pm

WHY: Teamwork, sportsmanship and overall fun will be emphasized over competition. The Mini-Dribbler Basketball League provides structure and knowledge while promoting a lifestyle that incorporated recreational sports. For many of these kids, this is their first experience with structured sports.
