The Davis Water Polo Club’s winter session continues this week at Schaal Aquatics Center on the UCD campus.

The sessions run Tuesday and Thursday evenings with the younger group — third through eighth graders — taking the pool at 6 p.m. before the high-school aged players go at 7:30 p.m.

For more information, contact coach Jamey Wright at ncwright0300@sbcglobal.net or 530-758-1234.

Post 77 crab feed

The annual American Legion Post 77 crab feed, a fundraiser to support Legion baseball and other youth sports functions, is set for Saturday, Jan. 25, at Waite Hall at the Yolo County Fairgrounds.

A no-host social hour goes from 5:30 to 7 p.m. and is followed by a crab and prawn dinner. Tickets are $40.

For tickets or more information, call 530-662-9772 Monday through Friday from 1 to 8 p.m.

Baseball academy tryouts

The Davis Baseball Academy will conduct player assessments/tryouts for its U13/14 squad on Saturday, Jan. 25, from 10 a.m. to noon at the Davis High School varsity field.

Players who are 13 years old as of April 30, 2014 — or younger — are eligible for the tryout, which will determine the level of competition at which that athlete should compete. As of Aug. 31, the team will compete at the 14-year-old level.

Players will be evaluated by a group that includes coach Kevin Keefer as well as other college and high school coaches and pro players and scouts. If there are enough players, two teams will be assembled.

Tryouts for younger teams — players ages 10 through 12 — will come next month and will be posted at www.davisbaseballacademy.com.

Davis Little League

Registration for Davis Little League is open online and runs through Jan. 15.

Current registration costs vary — depending on the division in which a child plays — ranging from $100 for T-ball to $280 for junior league. Fees will go up $30 for each level between Jan. 1 and 15.

A new Challenger Division for special-needs players has been added.

Kids ages 4 to 14 are eligible for DLL. League officials require players 9 or older to attend one of the to-be-scheduled January skills-assessment days.

Only online registration is accepted. Visit www.davislittleleague.org to sign up or learn more.

Five Starz volleyball

The Five Starz Volleyball Club’s Starlets program is accepting registration for the 2014 season. The Starlets offer an opportunity for young volleyball players who are not able to participate on travel teams but who would like to be a part of a competitive environment.

The program is open to players in grades four through nine, and participants will be split into fourth- through sixth-grade and seventh- through ninth-grade groups.

There are no tryouts for the Starlets program, which is designed to improve each player’s overall skills in a fun and competitive environment.

Beginning Jan. 12, Starlets will practice once a week for 12 weeks. The cost of $300 for all 12 sessions includes a T-shirt.

For more information, email fivestarzvolleyball@gmail.com.

For more information, contact Keefer at 916-717-1914 or kakeef7@yahoo.com.
