Hillsboro Recreation Commission
The JAM Basketball Program has been an excellent way to introduce basketball to your child. The first half of the season’s sessions will stress fundamentals and game situations with the second half consisting of scheduled games on Saturday mornings and instructional practice sessions. Length of games will depend on the age of the group and number of teams. Hillsboro High School Boys’ Basketball Coach Darrell Knoll and Hillsboro High School Girls’ Basketball Coach Nathan Hiebert will work on staffing each team with coaches who will consist of parents, local coaches, and high school players. More information will be given out once all of the registrations have been taken.

Skywalkers' trampoline and tumbling of Emporia, Wichita, Ottawa, and Marion will be offering a gymnastics program for boys and girls in Hillsboro, with classes beginning on Tuesday, September 9th. We need at least 25 students to offer this program so please help spread the word. We are excited about the opportunity to bring you this program. You may learn more about Skywalkers' at their website www.skywalkersgymnastics.com. Skywalkers' has enjoyed a very successful program since 1987. They have produced many national champions and are currently ranked the highest level program in the state of Kansas.
Age groups will be 5-7, 8-12, and 13 and older. We will take 3 and 4 yrs if there is enough interest. We only allow approximately 6 kids per instructor. All classes will be an hour in length. This is to insure the highest quality of instruction. All classes will include both trampoline & tumbling time. The cost is $45 per month, which is a lower cost than any of Skywalkers' other gymnastic programs because of the cooperation of the Hillsboro Recreation Commission. You are only committed month to month; however you must give a 30 day
“I’m an Ump!”
Donald Jensen was struck on the head by a thrown bat while umpiring a little league game in Terre Haute, Ind. He shook off the blow, and finished working the game, but that night he went to a hospital with head pains. While being kept overnight for observation, the umpire wrote the following letter to parents of Little Leaguers everywhere.
“I’m an umpire. I don’t do it for a living, but only on weekends for fun. I’ve played baseball, coached it and watched it, but somehow nothing takes the place of umpiring. Maybe I feel deep down that I am providing a fair chance for all kids to play the game without disagreements and arguments.
