Practice days and times are established once teams are formed and take into consideration the Coach’s availability, facility availability, and the age of the children on the team.
The practice schedule established for your team will be consistent throughout the season unless it becomes necessary to reschedule due to school closings. Shorts, tee shirt, and basketball sneakers should be worn for practices. The practice schedule and addresses can be found by clicking here.
Registration is currently open for the 2018/2019 season.
Online registration is preferred & strongly encouraged. Online registration is open anytime between Sept. 25th - October 24th.
If you are unable to register online, you can register by mail (see “Contact Info” page for mailing address), or in person by APPOINTMENT ONLY at the Evaluations/Skills night (around the 3rd week of October), however, those that register online will be given TEAM ASSIGNMENT PRIORITY.

Consider volunteering for scorekeeping, clock running, or team mom. All help is greatly appreciated and is a great way to get really involved in your child’s team.

KEEP SCORE OR RUN A CLOCK?
Prior experience is always helpful but not a must. The coach can sit with you and give you a lesson on how to keep the score book or how to run the clock. All parents will be asked to help out with at least one game in some capacity.
WHAT DOES A
The Team Parent helps the coach with the administrative function sending weekly emails to the team reminding them of practice and game schedules, picture dates, fundraising info, coaches charity game, etc.
The coach may ask for assistance in recruiting help for the scorebook and the clock. The team Parent also helps the coach plan the end-of-season team party.
