Yolo Post 77

American Legion Post 77 will host its annual crab and prawn feed on Saturday, Jan. 26, at the Yolo County Fairgrounds.

The event is designed to provide support for American Legion baseball as well as other youth sports.

The dinner costs $40 and will begin at 7:30 p.m. following a no-host social hour that starts at 6 p.m.

To buy tickets or get more information on the event, including being involved in the fundraising, call the American Legion club room at 530-662-9772 between 1 and 8 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.

Youth track and field

The Davis Community Track and Field Club is launching a new program that targets junior high school students interested in the sport.

Beginning Jan. 7, students in seventh and eighth grades are invited to participate in a six-week conditioning program that will prepare them for a healthy and successful spring season.

“We decided to offer this program because so many parents came to us and said they needed something to help prepare their kids for participating safely in spring sports,” said former Davis High and UC Davis runner Drew Peterson, who coaches the program. “Too many kids get injured or discouraged because they leap into a competitive season without conditioning.”

Athletes will do conditioning to develop strength and agility, learn to safely warm up and warm down and be supported to participate in two optional all-comer meets. For more information and to register, contact coach Petersen at 530-210-7049.

UCD softball camp

The Aggie program will host a College ID Winter Softball Camp for girls in grades 8-11 on Saturday, Jan. 19. The event will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at La Rue Field.

Directed by UCD head coach Karen Yoder and assistants Danielle Stines and Vicky Rios, the camp is an opportunity for athletes to display their talents and receive individualized feedback and instruction on all aspects of their game.

Davis High cheerleaders will conduct Cheer Clinic 2013 from 9 a.m. to noon Sunday, Jan. 27, at DHS’ South Gym.

Hopefuls ages 6 to 13 are invited to learn cheers, jumps, tumbling and dance from the award-winning Blue Devil cheerleaders and their coaches.

Cost for the session is $40 in advance and $45 at the event. The fee includes a T-shirt, small group instruction by age, snacks and beverages, and a free ticket to the Feb. 1 DHS boys basketball game, which is Break the Record Night.
