Get in the game
CN&R’s annual sports guide looks at how Chico competes
From the very organized to the decidedly unorganized, there are all kinds of outlets for uncorking your competitive juices in Chico, if the back, knees, ankles and feet can still take it. And we’ve got the whole wide range covered here: grading the best blacktop basketball courts; looking in on the Chico State club league for the football-like disc sport Ultimate; BMX racing at the Silver Dollar Fairgrounds; and the 10,000-participant-strong softball, baseball, volleyball, soccer and basketball leagues of Chico Area Recreation District.
Lace ’em up. It’s time to get in the game.
