In-House basketball opportunities are offered for children in grades 1 through 8. Teams are formed at random or through a draft. Teams will be formed with talent as evenly spread as possible.
In grades 1-3, we focus on developing skills with drills on dribbling, passing, shooting, defense and rebounding. A structured league is played at most levels. All players participate equally. Teams are selected through a random draft.
Common t-shirts give a sense of community and promote good sportsmanship.
In grades 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 In-House, we focus on the value of teamwork.
Teams are selected by player evaluations and draft process. Balancing competition is the priority in selecting teams.
