Johny Boren just tips the ball over the net to score a point at the 2017 Gila Valley Pioneer Day volleyball tournament.

THATCHER — Those planning summer activities should mark their calendars for the annual Pioneer Days Co-Ed Volleyball and 3-on-3 Basketball tournaments.

Both tournaments will be held Saturday, July 20, and will be played in local school gymnasiums.

The Co-ed Volleyball Tournament is open to all — there must be a minimum of two males and two females on the court at all times. There will be an A and a B division, with the B Division for those who may not feel as skilled as the others and who enjoy less competitive stress

The 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament has also been attracting many of the Gila Valley’s finest athletes – as well as great ball players from other areas of Arizona. There will be an Open Division, a 16-and-under Division and a 12-and-under Division.

Now is the time to start recruiting family and friends to join in these enjoyable activities. To register a team, and for more information on these and all Pioneer Days activities, go to
