Davis Little League

Davis Little League is accepting registration for fall baseball for kids age-appropriate for AA-, AAA-, majors- and juniors level competition.

Early bird sign-ups, which go through Friday, are $95. From Saturday through Sept. 3, getting into DLL fall ball will cost $125.

There are no farm or T-ball teams.

For the first time, all registration must be completed online at https://davislittleleague.sportssignup.com. For additional help, call Karen Yoon at 530-756-1463. For questions regarding juniors play, contact Steve Olney at steveo.dll@gmail.com.

Wildcats golf tournament
A golf tournament to raise money for the NorCal Wildcats youth basketball program is set for Friday, Aug. 23, at El Macero Country Club.
The outing, which begins with golf at 1 p.m. followed by dinner and a silent auction at 6 p.m., is the major fundraising event of the year for the organization.
The NorCal Wildcats are a nonprofit competitive AAU basketball club that has grown to more than 20 teams featuring approximately 300 players in grades four through 12 from local communities such as Davis, Dixon Winters, Woodland, Sacramento and Vacaville. Athletes from as far away as San Francisco, Los Angeles and Fresno also have joined the club.
The club has recently added programs such as the Junior Wildcats — for players ages 4 to 9 — and the NorCal Wildcats Elite teams for highly skilled players.
Interested golfers can register for the tournament at www.davishoops.com and sponsorships also are available by contacting Karen Ward at karen@davishoops.com or 530-219-8873.
Davis Hot Shots tryouts
The Davis Hot Shots fall session tryouts/registration for boys in grades 8 and 9 along with junior varsity will run from 4 to 5 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 30, at Harper Junior High, 4000 E. Covell Blvd. All information and forms for fall session are on the Hot Shots website at www.davishotshots.net. For more information, email davis_hotshots@yahoo.com.

Labor Day race

The Golden Valley Harriers’ Labor Day Races, an event that last year raised more than $10,000 for local running programs, are back this year.
On Sept. 2, 5K and 10K races will leave from Davis Commons at First and D streets at 8 a.m., with a 1K kids’ race to follow at 9:30 a.m. The 5K and 10k races will feature official race chip timing and awards go to the top three finishers and top three in each age group. Kids’ race participants will receive a finisher’s medal.
The Labor Day Races will not only raise funds for local running programs — last year, money went to high school cross country teams from Davis, Dixon and Woodland, as well as Team Davis, a program for athletes with special needs — but the event also is an international cultural exchange with Davis’ sister city of Inuyama, Japan.
For more information or to register, visit www.goldenvalleyharriers.org. Whole Foods Market is sponsoring post-race breakfast fare and participants get a race T-shirt.

Davis Hot Shots clinic
Young basketball players are welcome to come work on fundamentals and improve their shooting skills with Davis Hot Shots founder/president Dino Clark.
The program is open to boys and girls in grades 6 through 11. There are five sessions — once a week — on Wednesday evenings, Sept. 11, 18 and 25 and Oct. 2 and 9 at Harper Junior High.
For more information, visit www.davishotshots.net and click on “Fundamentals Clinic.” Space is limited; to make a reservation, email davis_hotshots@yahoo.com.
