Single elimination kick ball tournament on March 20th
The Utah County Health Department, Island Teens Against Tobacco and Centro Hispano are sponsoring a kick ball tournament to recognize Kick Butts Day, a national youth anti-tobacco day. Youth 12 to 18 are encouraged to create their own team or 10 members, or to sign up and be placed on a team with other youth. The tournament will be played on March 20th from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Peaks Arena in Provo (100 N Seven Peaks Blvd). It will be a single-elimination tournament with prizes for the winners.
"We wanted to create a fun event for youth to show their support against big tobacco," said Sarah Simons, Utah County OUTRAGE coordinator. "There are so many great things kids can be involved in -- and we want to reinforce the message that tobacco just creates hurdles to accomplishing those goals."
Sign-ups are going on now at the Utah County Health Department. Or interested teams can go to www.UtahCountyHealth.org/KickButtsDay. Registration and waivers are available for download there, and individuals just need to return those with the $3 registration fee. Other rules and details are available there as well, or by calling 801-851-7096. Registration forms and fees must be turned in by March 18th to the Utah County Health Department (151 S University Ave, Suite 2700, Provo).
OUTRAGE is a statewide anti-tobacco youth group dedicated to educating their peers against the dangers of tobacco and other nicotine products.
