Basketball Assessment Dates

All prospective players will be assessed with their age groups throughout mid-November. 

Assessment dates and locations and times are TBD (as of 10/18/17).

The assessment gives coaches the opportunity to form their teams via a draft process. All players will be rostered on a team, regardless of experience or skill. This process helps to achieve the goal of having balanced teams within age groups and within competition levels within the age groups. The assessment also identifies players who are better suited to playing on a team in the advanced ("A") competition levels.  The establishment of a team at this level in the age groups is a function of multiple variables and is not always guaranteed.
