Parents with girls or boys interested in playing basketball in the 4th, 5th or 6th grade, will have 2 registration options this year, recreational and athletic. Parents must choose ONE of these options. There are descriptions of each of the programs below. If you have any questions on which program may be right for your child, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or get in touch with your coach from last year for help.
The Recreational basketball program is designed as a beginner to intermediate program for those kids who want to play basketball but in a less competitive environment and less of a time commitment. The focus is to provide games where they can develop their skills at their own pace.
2 Practices for 1 hour per week. These will be run academy style with all the kids in their same grade regardless of their program option. (Recreational and Athletic teams will practice together)

The Athletic option is designed for those players who are interested in a higher level of competition beyond the existing recreational format. This option will expose kids to a a greater level of competition across the league against teams whose players were selected from a tryout format. Therefore, in order to ensure that the elevated level of competition is appropriate, your child will have to tryout for the team. After the tryout, your child will be placed on either the athletic or recreational team.
