An instructional basketball league is tentatively set to begin on Tuesday, Feb. 19, at Westwood Elementary School.

The Wee Wolves Basketball program is open to all kindergarten and first and second grade boys and girls. The cost will be $45 per player and all fees will be used to pay for league expenses, equipment, shirts and trophies.

According to league organizer, Kevin Miller, the purpose of the league is to have fun, teach the fundamentals of basketball, build self-esteem and confidence, teach good sportsmanship and fair play and to make new friends.
