Tristar Basketball for boys and girls ages 6 – 13 will be held on Sunday, March 25th in one of the Auxiliary Gyms at MFHS. Participants are evaluated individually within his or her age and gender group competing in three skills: passing, dribbling, and shooting. The winners in each age group get a special prize and are given the opportunity to participate in the District Contest in Mukwonago on April 4.

The contest runs from noon to 3:00 and we’re still looking for a few more volunteers to work all or part of the contest. Please plan on checking in around 11:45 am as we usually get a few kids checking in early after participating in the Dodgeball Tournament in the main gym.

Please consider giving us a hand and call Bob Wenzel at 262-783-6414
