Youth basketball tournaments here

The Whitfield County Recreation De-partment will host Georgia Recreation and Park Association all-star youth basketball tournaments starting this week at Dalton State College facilities.

The GRPA’s District 5 tournaments for boys and girls ages 11-12 will be played at the trade center — the home court for Dalton State’s men’s basketball team — and Bandy Gymnasium, the on-campus home of Roadrunners women’s volleyball.

The WCRD has two teams in the eight-team boys tournament and two teams in the six-team girls tournament, while the Dalton Parks and Recreation Department has one in each. Competition in both events begins Thursday with pool play, which continues Friday before single-elimination championship bracket play begins Saturday.

The tournaments will resume with semifinals on Monday and championship games on Wednesday.

Admission to tournament games is $3 for adults and $1 for students. Brackets are available at
