Collins Coach will lead Coach Training!

Martha Layne Collins High Head Basketball Coach Chris Gaither will lead a special age-graded coach training clinic for 2015 Upward coaches on Saturday morning, October 11!  The clinic will be held at Collins High in Shelbyville and will last from 8:30 a.m. – noon.  Breakfast will be provided by Chick-fil-A.

Chris played for legendary coach, John Chaney at Temple University before transferring to Georgetown College where he finished his playing career.  This past year Chris led the Collins Titans to a 25-5 record.  They were a tip-in away from playing for the State Championship!

We are excited and proud to be partnering with Chris!  This will be an outstanding learning opportunity for coaches!  Mark your calendar now and click on the Coach’s Corner above for more details.  Check or click the box on your registration form if you are interested in coaching or email

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.  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 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.
