CSRF Girls Basketball

     2020-2021 CSRF Basketball has been cancelled.

From Roanoke County Parks & Recreation:

The Roanoke County Parks, Recreation and Tourism Department is disappointed to announce the 2020-2021 youth recreational basketball season is being canceled out of an abundance of caution and the inability to meet the Commonwealth of Virginia‚Äôs Phase 3 Guidelines for Recreational Sports. While the Department was able to successfully offer outdoor fall recreational sports under the Phase 3 Guidelines, the additional requirements associated with indoor recreational sports such as building capacity limitations and enhanced cleaning and disinfecting practices is too great to offer our traditional indoor sports season. 

The Department remains committed to offering youth sports to the citizens of Roanoke County during these unprecedented times and looks forward to working with our community partners in March of 2021 to offer spring outdoor recreational sports seasons that comply with the Commonwealth's Phase 3 Guidelines.

What is the Evaluation/Draft day all about?
Players in the 10U and above divisions are selected by their coaches.  To get an idea of a players abilities, players and coaches meet on a Sunday, usually in November.  One at a time, the players are asked to execute a few basketball activities (dribbling, shooting jump shots, making layups). This is not a tryout -- everyone who signs up (during regular registration) is placed on a roster.  After the player has completed his activities, he is free to leave.  After all evaluations for a division is complete, coaches then meet and select the players using a serpentine draft. Draft order is determined by drawing numbers from a "hat".  Players that do not attend evaluations have their names drawn from a "hat" (in draft order) to determine the team for which they will play.  Teams are announced a few days after the draft.
