KEY CHANGES SINCE THE 2014 SEASON
As the recruiting phase nears for the upcoming season it is important to know that we will be keeping only 15 players for a team that will play both local and travel games. Once the season kicks off our focus will be local play with the occasional out of town tournament over the weekend.

Basketball Evaluations and Team Placement
We are working harder than ever to properly place on members in the best path to success both in basketball and life. Before a proper decision can be made an evaluation of each player must be completed. This evaluation measures four key areas as they pertain to our program.....
1) Maturity, 2) Ability, 3) Level of Commitment 4) Teamwork
A player must score a minumum of 75% on their overall evaluation to be considered for placement on one of our teams. Those that do not meet the requirements will have the option to begin individual and group sessions with our coaching staff until a proper score can be attained. The Evaluation fee is non refundable but can be applied toward the balance of the league or style of play that you choose. The fee breakdown is the following.....
middle school players for $15
high school players for $25
