COME JOIN THE FUN!
Sunrise Optimist Basketball for 1st-6th Graders
The Sunrise Optimist Club of North Topeka is sponsoring a basketball program for 1st-6th graders who reside in the Seaman USD 345 SchoolDistrict or who are home schooled. The emphasis of the program is on instruction of the basic basketball skills of dribbling, passing and shooting, as well as providing a recreational activity. Everyone plays in every game, because rather than putting all of the emphasis on winning, Sunrise Optimists emphasize values. We try to provide for the opportunity to learn  values such as teamwork, good sportsmanship, self-esteem and learning how to respect and get along with others.
