These grade-based non-competitive programs are intended to promote fun, exercise, and most importantly the fundamentals of basketball. PLEASE keep in mind, due to Covid–19, most players will not have played organized basketball in over a year.
Player evaluations for Grades 4-8 will take place on Sunday, November 14th. Exact time and location TBA.
There will be no evaluations for our Grade K-1 and Grade 2-3 programs.
