Kindergarten & Grade 1/2
Kindergarten play is co-ed with only those currently in Kindergarten. Grade 1/2 basketball is played with the grades combined, and split by gender (Grade 1/2 Girls & Grade 1/2 Boys). All practices & games for both age groups are played in-town. The season typically runs from the middle of December through the end of February.

Practices are held 1-2 times a week for an hour each. One weekday practice that will remain the same throughout the season, and one weekend practice that will stop  once games start. Practice times are determined by the coach of the team the player gets assigned to, and we will not know coaches and/or practice times until the middle/end of December. If your child has other commitments please let us know which days DO NOT work for practices in the requests/comments section of the registration form and we will do our best to meet your request, however, we cannot guarantee it. If we are unable to meet the request we can provide a full refund up until the point we order uniforms (typically 1-2 weeks after you find out your practice time). Once uniforms have been ordered we will provide a refund minus the cost of the uniform. 

Games are on held on Saturdays and Sundays starting in January and run through the end of February. There may occasionally be a weeknight game if a game needs to be made up and both coaches agree. Games schedules will be able to be found at: www.leaguelineup.com/shyouthbasketball
