Winter League Basketball Program

Factory Sports is excited to announce the return of our popular Winter Basketball League. This winter makes the 6th season of our Winter League and we are humbled to be apart of its growth. 



Team oriented practice sessions

Smaller group sizes for practices

Player drills and activities based on skill level

Program Description:

Participants will have one practice per week with their team coach and a Factory Sports Basketball Coach. They also will have one game per week. Our season runs for 14-weeks and includes a 2-week break over Christmas and New Years Eve. The team practices will be broken down in to multiple phases. One, fundamental skill work for all players. Two, advanced skill work for those participants who are further along as a basketball player. Finally, participants will learn about team play and the game of basketball via practice times with their team. Registration fee includes, one practice per week for 12-weeks, one game per Saturday refereed by a trained official (s), team jersey for each player, and a Factory Sports water bottle.


We are asking that parents sign their child or children up for the practice time slot that they are able to attend. In the past, there was one mass sign-up and we would work with families to coordinate practice times. We believe that having families register for the time that they want upfront will eliminate confusion regarding the practice schedule.

We have volunteer opportunities during our Winter League Program. Interested candidates click the link VOLUNTEER APPLICATION

Train and Play Basketball

Starting Monday, September 9 Factory Sports will be launching our Train and Play Basketball Program. The program will run for 6-weeks and take place two times per week at Factory Sports.

Our Train and Play Basketball Program will consist of an allotted time, generally 20 to 30 minutes of skill training for our athletes. The importance of training a basketball players basic skill set should not be under-rated. 3-time NBA Champion Steph Curry will still warm-up with basic ballhandling drills every day. He believes that “a lot of consistent work” is one of the keys to his success. This concept of consistently working on basketball fundamentals and skills will be emphasized. 

The skill work in Train and Play Basketball will aim to improvedribbling, passing, shooting, player movement, and overall basketball IQ. The play portion is self-explanatory. Our athletes will be given the time at the end of each session to simply play basketball and have fun. Factory Sports coaching staff will referee games as participants play in games ranging from 1v1 to 5v5 full-court. 

The Train and Play Basketball Program is for students in the following grade divisions:
