Program Growth

Recently many of our league games have beenBasketball gym moved to new facilities due to our high 

enrollment numbers. Although it is exciting to see our programs grow, high enrollment has made it challenging to schedule games with limited gym space available. We greatly appreciate your patience as we work hard to secure new facilities. Thank you again for your understanding and patience.  

End of the Season Basketball Tournament
It might seem like it's a ways off, but the end of the season tournament for basketball is fast approaching! The tournament will take place starting Feb 7th-9th and finish up Feb 14th-16th. The game schedules for the tournament will be posted by Friday, Feb 4th. We will continue updating the league schedules and standings so make sure to check in to see how your team is doing! As a reminder to the coaches and players, all players must have participated in at least HALF of the league games during the season to qualify for the end of the season tournament. Players who do not meet that requirement will not be allowed to play, so make sure that your team attendance remains strong so we can see you all playing come tournament time!   
We hope you enjoyed our first e-newsletter. Please take a moment to complete one of our short online surveys to help us improve our programs.
