The goal of these programs is to provide an opportunity for boys and girls to become acquainted with the skills and techniques necessary to play the game of basketball. Participation, skill development, sportsmanship and fun will be emphasized over competition.
Teams are selected by a rotating draft of the coaches to be as evenly matched as possible. Requests to be on a particular team, with a certain coach or to be on the same team as someone else will NOT be honored. Players registering after or who did not attend player evaluation sessions will be placed on any team by the League Director.
Fee of $135 per player which includes their basketball shirt. If registering after November 19, 2014, the registration fee is $150. Third child in family pays half price. The fee covers most costs necessary to operate the league [basketball shirt, gym supervision, referees, custodians, awards, equipment, etc.]. Registration deadline is December 10.
A series of clinics/evaluation sessions will be conducted as an orientation for players. The evaluation sessions are for team placement only, there are no cuts. Anyone who does not attend evaluations will be placed on a team by the league director.
