The 1st 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. The season runs November 5 - February 18.
League Coordinator: Kari Underwood
Season: All 1st grade practices will be held on Saturdays. Practices will vary week to week and gym location is TBD depending on the number of teams enrolled during registration. There is NO season-ending tournament in 1st grade.
Practices: Practices will consist of 45 min practices once a week. The first part of the season the focus will be on developing individual basketball skills. The second part of the season will consist of drills and introduction to 3 on 3 team play.
Games: There will be no 5 on 5 games, just 3 on 3 games within the team or the other team that will be practicing the same time.
Coaches: House basketball does rely on volunteers for coaching. Please consider coaching and indicate it during registration if interested. At the beginning of the year coaches will be given examples of practice plans, as well as some drills they can use to help the kids develop their skills.
Team Formation: The 1st grade league does not have player evaluations and children are grouped by school when possible. Coaches and teams will be formed by October 17. We do not take play-with requests.
