WHAT MAKES OUR LEAGUE DIFFERENT? 

The emphasis of our youth basketball league is threefold:

1) Individual skill development – both offensively and defensively. 

2) Game understanding and IQ – team concepts will be taught concerning offensive spacing and movement as well as defensively position and help.

3) Competitive greatness and sportsmanship – through offering a competitive environment through specific drills, competitions, and game play. 

***New this season – players will be placed on set teams at the beginning of the season and will play with this team for the duration of the season***
