Lakewood Loves Tournaments!
This past August, the Athletic Commissioners of the Community Recreation and Education Commission, Adult Athletic Commission and Youth Athletic Commission held the first annual Commissioner’s Softball Tournament benefiting Lakewood Youth Recreation Scholarships. The tournament was such a success that a check for $1,300 was presented to the Board of Education on August 2012 by Joe Stolitza, Tom Zigman, Jesse Garling, Don Sharp and Jim Reitenbach, Director of the Recreation and Education Department.
Feedback from the sponsors and players was so positive that the Lakewood Commissioner’s have expanded the 2nd annual Lakewood Commissioner’s Softball tournament to include co-ed and men’s teams in 2013! Next year the tournament will be held on two days, Saturday August 10 for men’s teams and Sunday August 11 for co-ed teams. So save the date for next year and come join us for a great time and a great cause!
The Recreation and Education Department will also be hosting a Men’s Basketball tournament to be held in February 2013. In addition, the Lakewood Athletic Commissioners have approved the formation of a Seniors Softball league to start in the spring of 2013. More information on both of these topics will be published in the Recreation and Education booklet coming out in December.
