Roanoke College Hall of Famer Ed Green will once again offer his “Great Beginnings” program to kids and parents in Southwest Virginia beginning this Sunday, Jan. 9.
The Great Beginnings program is for 3- to 7-year-old boys and girls to help them transition to playing recreation level sports. The child will learn basic skills and how to get along with teammates, and a parent is encouraged to accompany the child to the program.
Great Beginnings for basketball is scheduled for five consecutive Sundays, beginning this week, at the G.W. Carver Elementary School gym in Salem. Two sessions are offered, one from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. and a second from 2:45 to 3:45 p.m. Cost is $75 per child/parent duo and all that is required is to bring a small basketball.
Green is a former Roanoke College coach who has also been a head coach at North Cross and Eastern Montgomery High Schools. To sign up for the Great Beginnings program, call Green at 540-387-9516.
