ABOUT SHOOTING STARS BASKETBALL
St. Charles Parish youth with mental or physical challenges are able to play recreational basketballl, organized by The Parks and Recreation Department.

The program encourages the use of “buddies” for Shooting Star players. Buddies assist players on the court.
The program is available to mentally or physically challenged boys and girls ages 5 to 18 or until completion of high school. For more information contact The Parks and Recreation Department Assistant Director Therese Theriot at (985) 783-5090.
