St. George — The St. George Parks and Recreation Department will offer summer clinics, including sports, for students in second through eighth grades.

The basketball clinic will be June 24-26, cheering July 1-3, tennis July 8-10 and art July 15-17. All clinics will be Tuesdays through Thursdays, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Participants may pack their own lunch or sign-up to take part in the free lunch program sponsored through the cooperation with the town of St. George and Regional School Unit 13. This program provides each child a bag lunch and drink.

Basketball, cheering and art will take place at St. George School, while tennis will meet at the town courts unless of rain, then the group will meet in the school gymnasium.

The clinic structure will include morning and afternoon sessions directed by skilled, knowledgeable instructors, said recreation director Ben Vail. Lunch will be supervised by Vail with youngsters having the opportunity to eat, rest and play before resuming participation in the clinic.

Ashley Geel will instruct basketball; Irene McGonagle, cheering; Cheryl Worthing, tennis; and Angela Anderson, art.

The cost is $40 per week for St. George residents, while non-residents pay a one-time $25 fee, plus the clinic cost. Clinic fees help defray the costs of materials and t-shirts for each participant.

Registration is open through May. Each session is open from five to 30 participants.

For more information, call Vail at 372-6363 or 701-9754.
