ATHLETIC BASKETBALL – BOYS & GIRLS GRADES 4-6 – Cost $115
The Athletic option is available for boys and girls in grades 4 - 6. The Mariemont Athletic Basketball option is for kids who want a higher level of commitment and more competitive basketball program. Players should have a higher skill level and an interest in continuing to play this sport at a higher level in the future. Players are expected to place basketball as the priority during the season. Players are expected to attend ALL practices and games. The minimum playing time is 1 quarter a game. Lack of attendance at practices will affect playing time. In essence, if you want to try out and are selected for an athletic team, you are expected to be “all in” for basketball. Also note players are not guaranteed a spot on an Athletic team. There will be tryouts to form teams and your child may be placed on a Recreational team. The program involves:
2 Practices for 1 to 1 1/2 hours per week. Early in the season there may be an extra Saturday practice.
Season is 20 games. (Expect a game every Saturday and Sunday each week)
Games will cover a larger geographic area so expect more travel.
Playing requirement is only 1 quarter or 6 minutes per game.
1 - 3 tournaments each season.
If for any reason, an Athletic option for a given age/gender is not formed, refunds will be issued and kids will be automatically signed up for the Recreational option.
