Fuel hosts 2nd Middle School Dodgeball TournamentSep 20th, 2010 | By admin | Category: Community
Fuel, the youth activities program from St. Bernard Parish President Craig Taffaro’s office, will kick off the school year with its first event September 25. The event will be a dodgeball tournament for sixth- to eighth-grade students. Boys and girls from all schools are welcomed to participate. Teams will be composed of six students and will compete in a double elimination tournament at the Fuel Youth Center at 210 E. Moreau St. in Chalmette. The Youth Center is located behind the School Board Building.
Team registration and practice will be September 25 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. The tournament will begin immediately after registration at 6:30 p.m. and will last until 9 p.m. The grand prize for the winning team will be a private party at the Fuel Center for the team and their friends. Concessions will be sold at the event, and there is a $1 entry fee for both participants and fans.
After the success of the first Dodgeball Tournament last May, it was decided that the event will be a staple in the middle school schedule for Fuel. Other upcoming middle school events include a Saints Party on Oct. 10 from 2:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Fuel Center, Game Night on Oct. 16 at Trist Middle School from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.; and Game Nights on Nov. 13 and Dec. 4 with locations to be announced.
The Fuel Youth Center is currently open after school until 6 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Students can come play basketball, dodgeball, video games, work on the computers or just hang out with their friends. Adult supervision is always provided.
