Updated: March 15, 2013 12:55PM

Fresh off a successful 2012 campaign, the Zion-based Jr. Zee-Bees are preparing for another year of flag football, tackle football and cheerleading.

Registration will begin on Saturday, March 2, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Zion Leisure Center.

Flag football is for boys and girls age 5 through eighth grade.

Tackle football and cheerleading is for youngsters age 6 through eighth grade.

The flag-football fee will again be $30. Players will learn basic football skills and terminology while having fun in the sun, making it a great way to transition to the Jr. Zee-Bees tackle program.

Tackle football fees this year are $220 for the early- bird registration (March 2), and $295 for those who sign up later.

Cheerleading fees are $175, including a $25 refundable equipment/uniform deposit.
