2nd Grade (Pee Wees)
 

Clinic style training held one day per week on Saturdays focusing on the basics…dribbling, shooting, layups and defense. As the season progresses, players will begin 1v1, 2v2 and 3v3 drills with the goal of working towards game like situations. (do we actually have 1v1, 2v2 drills at the clinic?)The girls play with a regulation sized woman’s basketball (28.5 inch) but at 8 ft baskets (Is this relevant?  Do actually use the side baskets a Brookside?). The $100 registration fee covers gym space, Backyard Sports, insurance, a team shirt, basketball, participation trophy and breakfast at Traditions Restaurant for the awards ceremony and some clinic sessions will be run by Backyard Sports.
 
Basketball will begin December 1,, 2018 and run through March 9th 2019 from at Brookside Elementary School. The girls will get a ball and a shirt. We will also be inviting Backyard Sports to run some sessions – they will run some exciting drills for the girls and they are high energy. The girls will love them!

 

 

3rd and 4th Grade (Bantam Division)
 
Participants are divided into teams based on bad practice day and the desire to have a balance of 3rd and 4th graders on each team, teams practice once a week. Games are on Saturdays beginning December 1, 2018 and run into March 9th 2019. Games are kept simple…4v4 with a coach from each team serving as the point guard.  No score is kept, coaches serve and playing time will be equal (depending on the number of players on each roster, we cannot guarantee 50% playing time but they will get plenty of run) . The goal is to teach the basics of the game and to provide game situations that are fun with minimal pressure. The $150 registration fee covers gym space, referees, insurance, a team shirt, basketball, participation trophy and breakfast at Traditions Restaurant for the awards ceremony.

 

5th and 6th Grade (Junior Division)
 

All players attend an evaluation where each In-House coach has an opportunity to see each girl perform basic basketball skills. The girls are then placed on a team through a draft system with the goal of forming equally competitive teams. For 5th-8th grade there is a draft to form teams so please do not ask to be placed on a team with a particular coach or friend’s team. Each team practices one night per week and games are held on Saturdays. The regular season consists of 8 – 10 games followed by playoffs and a championship game. Every team makes the playoffs regardless of season record. Every player should receive at least 50% playing time throughout the season. The $150 registration fee covers gym space, referees, insurance, a team shirt, trophy and lunch at Traditions Restaurant for the awards ceremony.
 
Volunteer coaches are needed at all program levels. Please indicate your interest in coaching in the appropriate section of the registration form or through a board member listed in the Contact US tab.

School Rules
 
Some school rules to abide by: This is not our school. We need to follow the school district rules or they can take the gym use away from us. Then we will have no place to play basketball.
 
Enter school from the back of the building (no one is allowed to enter from the front).
 
The school will keep the doors locked at all times. It is everyone’s responsibility to make sure the door is locked behind them once they enter. NEVER PROP THE DOOR OPEN. The club will lose the gym. Make sure all visitors (grandparents, friends and relatives) know the rules also.
 
Best thing to do on Saturdays is to have a parent stay (take turns) at the door to let people in during their session. Also have a cell number or two of people who might be inside that can come open the door for you.
 
No hanging out in the hallways. Siblings MUST ALWAYS be supervised.
 
The bathroom that we can use is located near where we enter. Please keep it clean at all times.
 
Clean up after yourself when you are leaving the gym – water bottles, garbage, etc. All these things should be obvious but you would be surprised at the messes left behind.
 
No earrings or casts allowed while playing.
 
The awards breakfast ceremony will be at Traditions Restaurant after the season ends on Sunday March 26 2017.
 
We welcome volunteers so if you are interested in helping out speak to the clinic director at the first practice.
 
Enjoy and have a great season!
