Plan on your son being in the gym for around 2 1/2 hours the first Saturday! On this day we'll draft teams/honor teammate requests, hand out uniform tops and schedules, assign coaches, teach our motion offense and if time permits play a practice game.
For the following 7 weeks, boys will report each Saturday for 40 minutes of professional skills training followed by league game – no scheduled practices during the school week, all training done before league games. Every effort will be made to honor all teammate requests - but not if request causes teams to be unbalanced. "friendship will not trump fairness"
FAQ: What if we cannot attend the first day evaluation?
No worries!! Your son will be placed on a team, his schedule and roster will be emailed to you, and your son's jersey will be waiting for him at the gym next weekend!
FAQ: Who will be training my boy - coaching him?
Our site directors are carefully hand selected professionals that have impressive basketball experience - but also have the ability to teach and motivate young players. They will handle the instruction/drills each league day. We rely on parents to volunteer to coach the actual games. Positive spirited adults with a love of serving are encouraged to sign up to coach!
