Our in-house program caters to 1st grade through High School (novices to seasoned players). 1st and 2nd Grade teams are randomly selected, balancing the number of boys and girls on each team. All other teams are formed following an evaluation of player’s skills and then a coaches draft. A maximum of 10 players are assigned to each team. Each player will receive a team jersey. It is recommended players wear black shorts with the jersey. The season includes a 10 game season for each age group (1st and 2nd grade play 8 games). Summer basketball seasons will consist of a 6 game season.
