Sports Briefs: Pop Warner registration July 19
Thursday, July 19, is the final day to register your child for the 2012 South Tahoe Pop Warner football and cheerleading season. Meet the coaches, get measured for uniforms and receive raffle tickets. This will be the last opportunity for cheerleaders to register, as uniforms are being ordered shortly afterward. Any football players that sign up after this date will jeopardize playing at the beginning of the season.
Registration will take place from 5-8 p.m. at The Sportsman, located by the Grocery Outlet, at 2358 Lake Tahoe Blvd.
