Basketball Rules

Basketball Overview:

We reserve 1 full week for team practices before the first scheduled game starts of the season.  The practices will happen in the evening between 6-9pm at you local school gym.  Practices will also be allowed throughout the season, however all practice dates/times will be set by the volunteer coaches.  While we encourage all kids to attend practices, In the event a child can not make a practice, this in NO WAY will impact the amount of playing time your child sees during a game.

Your child will play 7-9 games in total.  One weekly game will be played on Monday, Tuesday, or Thursdays for 1 hour, between 6-9pm.  Generally speaking the games will be played at Park Jr. High, however, if there are any scheduling conflicts with the gym, we may from time to time have to move to a different venue that will be announced.  Again, we encourage all players to make the games, but understand there are other activities that kids are involved with as well. 

The game schedules will be published some time during the week of practice week, usually at the beginning of that week.
