What is the Evaluation/Draft day all about?
Players in the 9U 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 are 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.

Please note:  Players in the 7U divisions are placed on teams -- not drafted. 7U players do not attend an Evaluation/Draft day.

Basketball Registration Information:

If you need a better understanding of the login/registration process, please check out this helpful link (will open in new tab/window):
Parents Online Registration Instructions

Payment Information:
Registration fee is $80.  Early Bird registrants will receive a $10 discount. 
Payment is by Credit Card only.
Late Registrations:
Once late registration begins, a $40.00 late fee will be charged.  Late Registrants Are Placed on a Wait List And Are Not Guaranteed Placement on a Team.  There is no charge when a player is placed on the wait list. A charge is only assessed when a player is activated from the wait list and payment must be made before the player is put on a roster.

Age Verification:
A copy of the player's birth certificate is required to verify age/eligibility. A legible, valid copy must be provided before a player is placed on a roster.  The system allows for the upload of the birth certificate during registration.  Once the player's age/birthdate is verified, the file is deleted.

No refunds will be given after registrants are assigned to a team/teams are drafted. A $25.00 service charge will apply to any approved refunds. Late fees may not be refundable.
