The program provides an opportunity for children to play basketball in an organized setting, which is competitive, yet recreational. The emphasis will not only be on teaching basic skills and fundamentals, but also teaching fair play, teamwork and sportsmanship. The cost is $40 for children in kindergarten through 4th grade and $50 for children in 5th and 6th grades. A late fee of $15 will be assessed for registrations received after the deadline.
Teams will be formed by current grade level and school each child attends. The season begins Saturday, Nov. 3 and runs through Saturday, Dec. 15. Practices will begin in late October with one-hour practices determined by the coach.
There are also limited openings for teams in the Competitive Hoopster basketball league. Each league is limited to 8 teams per age division.
