Grade 3 3rd Grade basketball is instructional, only. The goal is merely to introduce the boys to the game of basketball one year before the games become competitive. Each team will compete in one(1) league. All games are played in the Mt. Greenwood Pk 3rd/4th grade Saturday league. All games are played on Saturday. In addition, you will compete in one tournament at the end of the season, pending availability
Grades 4-8 will compete in two(2) leagues each (Leagues have not been chosen, yet). In addition, each team in grades 4-8 participates in at least one(1) tournament, pending availability.
Because of the amount of teams this season, and because gym time is a huge commodity, we will once again have to rent gym time in an attempt to accommodate sufficient practice time for all teams. Gym time for practice accounts for over 1/5 of the programs' costs.
This year, practices will begin the week of October 26th. 3rd graders can expect to practice once per week, at most. There will be weeks where 3rd grade may not practice at all. Practice time is allotted to grades 4-8 first, with 3rd grade getting any slots that are left. All other grades should expect to practice at least 1-2 times per week. Practices are held at the school gym, Mt. Greenwood Park, Ag School and Crosswinds Church (109th/Pulaski). Practices usually run for one hour and can start at any time from 3pm to 8pm. 3rd graders can expect earlier practice times.
Games begin at the end of November and run through late February/mid-March. Games are predominantly on weekends, but can be on any day of the week. I have no control over what days of the week we play, nor the times and gyms at which we play.
We will once again need volunteers to coach. We cannot field teams without coaches. Although preferable, no coaching experience is necessary. Please indicate on the registration form whether you will offer to coach a team.
Please remember to fill out the Hold Harmless form, as well. No player may play without that form on file.
Registration, again, is ongoing. Walk in registration is Friday, September 25th, from 2:45-3:30pm, at the school cafeteria. Registration will close at 3:30 that day. If you do not register by September 25th, @ 3:30 pm, I cannot guarantee your son a roster spot.
If you have any questions, please let me know. My email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
