This program focuses on developing individual playing skills, general teamwork, and basic game strategies. This is an exciting competitive league that focuses on equal playing time and sportsmanship. Games will closely follow all high school rules. The league includes a weekday practice and an hour long weekend game. At the end of the regular season a league tournament will be played with a random seeding of teams as we do not keep standings.  Two certified basketball officials will be present at each game.



For each team, 8 practices and 8 games are expected to be played throughout the season.  Due to potential gym cancellations from weather and HS athletics two extra practices (10 total practices) and one extra game (9 total games) have been built into the schedule.  If we do experience gym cancellations the practices or games affected will not be rescheduled.



Potential for league to be split into grades 9 – 10 and grades 11 – 12



Registration Deadline: Dec 12

After deadline interested participants must visit the Rec Dept. office to be assigned to the wait list.  To be placed on the WL a registration form and check is required. No guarantee of placement.
