Neighbors wants winter sports news

It’s getting cold outside and the snow will be flying before you know it. That’s the bad news. But here’s the good news: It’s winter sports season. Your young athletes have already started practicing and games will be starting before the end of this month. It promises to be a great season filled with game-winning shots, wrestling tournaments, strikes and spares, balance beam routines and swim meets.

Neighbors wants to be there every step of the way. If you’re a winter sports coach or the parent of an athlete, we need you help. In order to get teams and players the recognition they deserve, we want to showcase them in our pages. We can only do that if you commit to sending us game reports and photos each week. If you send it, it will get in.
