February 15, 2011 |

Davis Hoops Wildcats AAU basketball tryouts begin this month for eighth-grade girls, while high school freshman, JV and varsity boys and girls tryouts will be in early March

Workouts for eighth-grade girls start on Thursday, Feb. 24, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at Holmes Junior High, 1220 Drexel Drive.

Tryouts are free and players are encouraged to attend at least two of the three scheduled tryouts for their age group. Each grade fields two teams and participates in competitive tournaments in the Sacramento region. Scholarship assistance is available.

For more information, call Carol at (530) 574-7115 or visit http://www.davishoops.com.

Hall of Fame presentation

A talk this week at the U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame will feature a topic of historical significance that goes beyond the sporting aspect of cycling.

On Sunday, Feb. 20, Andrew Ritchie, an ex-racer who has been writing about the sport for the past 30 years, will be at the Hall to give a presentation about Marshall “Major” Taylor (1878-1932).

Long before Jackie Robinson, Taylor was an African-American who faced fierce opposition by competing in cycling at a time when the sport was basically all white. After much hardship when trying to race near his home in Indianapolis, Taylor moved to Worcester, Mass., in the late 1890s and went on to break world records, win national and international championships and become one of the highest-paid cycling stars in the world.

From 4 to 5 p.m. Sunday, Ritchie will present a slide show on Taylor’s life and have copies of the latest edition of his book “Major Taylor” for purchase and signing. Admission is free for members and costs $5 for nonmembers.

The U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame, at 303 Third St., will open that day at 3 p.m. In addition, the Hall is open each Wednesday from 4 to 8 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

For more information, contact Event.info@usbhof.org.

Girls lacrosse camp

The Davis Lacrosse Association is offering a spring lacrosse camp for girls of all skill levels in grades three through eight.

Beginning Feb. 28, the camp will run Mondays and Wednesdays through April 27 from 4:30 to 6 p.m. There are no sessions scheduled for the first week in April.

The cost of the program is $165 and all participants must be members of U.S. Lacrosse through April 30. To register a player or to get more information, visit http://www.davislax.org. For any questions, e-mail donaldta@pacbell.net or call (530) 750-3892.

Football coaches needed

The Davis Junior Blue Devils Football Club is accepting coaching applications for the 2011 season. JBD is Davis’ only contact football program for kids ages 5 to 14 (grades K-8). The club participates in the Sacramento Youth Football League with teams in four separate age divisions. The ability to teach fundamental football skills is highly desired. Coach training will be available.

The deadline for head coaching applications is Tuesday, March 1. Assistant coach applications will be accepted until all spots are filled.

Applications can be found online at http://www.juniorbluedevils.com. Call coach commissioner Mike Goodison at (530) 753-6761 with questions.

AYSO spring soccer

Parents can still register their children for spring soccer by visiting the AYSO website and mailing in the appropriate paperwork. Guaranteed placement on a team requires registration to be received by March 15. Players will be put on a wait list starting March 16.

The spring season is for children from pre-kindergarten through high school (born between Aug. 1, 1992, and July 31, 2007), and starts April 15, the first Friday after spring break. There will be a U16/U19 division if enough players register.

New players also must show a birth certificate or passport for proof of age.

Coaches, assistant coaches and referees also are needed. E-mail volunteers@davisayso.net. Volunteer application forms cannot be mailed. Officials must verify in person with a photo ID.
