We hope your child is excited to start the 2nd-4th grade basketball league.

Program Philosophy
For those that are new to the program, this leagues philosophy is to develop basketball skills while having fun and making new friends. We do equal playing time to focus on developing the skills of every player on the team. You will notice certain rules to help cultivate that. Our staff will serve as instructors to begin the season before transitioning into helping volunteer parent coaches with their practices and games as well as referee games. The idea is to develop every player in a comfortable environment from the first day to the last. You will notice that referees are helping teach the game, during the game. We may allow a player of lesser talent take a few extra steps and not call traveling. They may stop the game completely to teach a new fundamental skill or strategy.

Volunteer Parent Coaches
I ask for parent volunteer coaches to help out with practices and games. There will be staff to assist with drills at practices and with subbing during games if needed, but I prefer to have our staff available for refereeing, scorekeeping, etc. Please email Kirsten Taylor ( if interested.
