Bobby Mesker last year stepped down from the athletic director’s position at Sul Ross State University to focus on just coaching their baseball team, and to spend more time with his family. Consequently, he has taken over the sign-up process for the Alpine Youth Basketball Association.

The deadline to register has been extended to Jan. 10, and Mesker is hoping to get enough kids from Fort Davis and Marfa for them to field their own teams. If that happens, then the youth from those towns won’t have travel to Alpine for each and every practice.

There is a fee for each child participating in the basketball league, and the teams are divided into three catagories: first and second grade, third and fourth grade, and fifth and sixth grade.

Credit card payments are accepted online for the registration fee, along with the registration form found at Cash or check payments can be deposited at West Texas Community Credit Union.

Any further questions can be directed to Mesker at 806-632-2878.
