Battle on the Bayou to give area kids a chance to play

Biddy Basketball season is right around the corner.

But before it starts, area youngsters will get a chance to polish their skills in some 5-on-5 tournament competition.

The South Lafourche High School Battle on the Bayou Tournament will take place Sept. 10-11 at the school’s gym.

The two-day event will feature boys and girls brackets in five different age groups (U8, U10, U12, U14 and 10th-12th grade) and it will cost just $50 to register a team.

On Saturday, the girls tournaments will be played to accommodate those in youth football leagues. 

Sunday, the boys will play. 

Event organizers said all children around the area are welcome, and captains are allowed to make their own teams on a nine-player maximum basis. 

The event will utilize two gyms, and concessions will be offered throughout the weekend.

All proceeds will go to South Lafourche High School.

The deadline to enter a team is Sept. 7.
