2015 season will feature Expanded Rules for older leagues
Beginning this year, players in grades 5-8 will played under new “Expanded Rules.” These rules are designed to help our older players improve their ability as well as their understanding of the game. Expanded rules will include zone and man defense; overtimes and timeouts; league standings; and an end of season tournament!
Additional information about the rules will be available during coach training. We are looking forward to implementing these new rules and believe they are going to ratchet up the level of competition and bring a new level of excitement to our league!

ALL players and cheerleaders are required to attend one of our Evaluation Sessions in order to participate in our league. A complete schedule is shown below. If you have players over several age ranges you can bring everyone at the same time. Uniforms will be sized for all cheerleaders and basketball players. Coaches will also lead basketball players through some simple drills to help our coaches access skill levels. The evaluation process should take about 30 minutes depending on the number of people waiting.
