Warren central softball tryouts
Tryouts for Warren Central’s fast-pitch softball team are scheduled for May 5 and 6, from 5 to 7 p.m. each day at Lucy Young Field. All potential players, including those currently on the team, must sign up for the tryouts. All new players must attend both days of the tryouts, and returning players must attend on May 6.

All players should bring a glove, cleats and helmet, but should not buy new equipment if they don’t already have those items. All new players must have a current physical, and concussion and clearance forms.

YMCA summer basketball
The Vicksburg YMCA will host a summer open basketball league for children ages 10-13. The league will run from June 5 to July 17 at the Purks YMCA, with games played on Saturdays and Sundays. The registration fee is $350 per team, and registration closes on May 29. The league is for any team in Vicksburg and the surrounding area.

There will be a mandatory coaches meeting on May 26 at 6 p.m. at the Purks YMCA. For more information, call 601-638-1071 or email Wayne Scott at wayne@vicksburgymca.com
