Advanced (Div III), League Play (Div IV) and Girls Nov. 3 and end in March with Playoffs, All-Star Game, and Olympics.

How are Teams Formed?  

Our goal is to teach kids sportsmanship, how to play basketball, improve their skills and have fun doing it. 

Every age group team begins with two players, the son/daughter of the Head Coach & Assistant Coach. 

Instructional and Intermediate Levels will have assigned teams created by the director. 

There will be an evaluation day for Divisions III, IV, and Girls. 
The remaining spots are then filled in with the goal of balanced, competitive teams in a draft format.
