The 2nd grade house league is designed to introduce the kids to the game of basketball, with an emphasis on teaching fundamental skills and team play. Having fun and exhibiting good sportsmanship are always the priorities.
League Coordinator: Kari Underwood, firstname.lastname@example.org
Season: Week of November 1 - February 18.
Practice Schedule: Practices start the week of November 1 and will take place one night a week, on random nights each week, for approximately 1 hour between 6-9 pm. Practice night requests are not accepted. An additional practice will be scheduled during the day on Saturdays November 6, 13 and 20 until games begin in December. Week night practices will be scheduled by the association through Sportsengine as the season progresses.
Games: Games will start December 4 and run through February 18. Games will be played 4 on 4 with referees monitoring game play and doing some teaching. There will be no 5 on 5 games for 2nd grade. Score will not be kept. Saturday game/practice schedule will be set at the start of the season. There is NO season-ending tournament in 2nd grade.
Coaches: The Wayzata House basketball program relies on parent volunteers. Please consider volunteering to coach your child's team and indicate it on your child's registration. With the 4 on 4 nature of this league, and having at least 2 coaches per team, the ideal number of kids on each team is 8. This means 1 out of every 4 families NEEDS to volunteer to coach. Head coaches will be provided sample coaching plans and drills in addition to a Wayzata coaches shirt.
Team Formation: There are no player evaluations for 2nd grade. Teams are grouped by school as much as possible and will be handled on a first come first serve basis, per registration submissions. Coaches and teams will be formed and notified of their rosters by Monday, October 17 with practices scheduled to start the week of November 1. Please see each grade's page for more details about the league, rules, etc.
Uniform: All players will receive a reversible jersey.
