New this season players in the 5/6 division will have a 45 minute practice once a week along with the Saturday sessions.
All players this year(age 9 and up) will go through an evaluation process where they will be scored on several skills in basketball drills. Coaches' kids WILL need to go through evaluations. The evaluations will be on November 4th and November 19. Any player that does not attend the evaluations might not be placed on a team.
All players will be then placed on teams by the basketball coordinator randomly based on:
- Scores from Evaluation
- Position suggested by evaluators
- Practice location desired
Players age 9 and up are not allowed to request coaches this season or practice days, or ride requests with friends. Siblings in the same divisions will be placed together on teams.
Practice location choices are not guaranteed.
- North players can be placed in the North or Central regions for practice
- South players can be placed in the South or Central regions for practice
- Central players can be placed in any region for practice
The reason you won't be able to make special requests (as in day of practices, coaches, ride requests) is because we are forming the teams to make them more even and competitive based on talent level on each team. This is our main goal this season.
When players are evaluated they will be given a registration number that will be placed on their evaluation sheet instead of their name. Then based on the criteria above, they will be anonymously placed on teams. The administrator placing them on teams won't know who the player is because the name won't be revealed until after they are placed on the team. No players will be moved from a team once they are placed there.
After a coach has attended the mandatory workshop on T.B.D., they will be assigned to a team. The practice schedule is then made based on what the coach requests when they register and also on which schools we have available.
Players will be placed in divisions based on their age as of Dec. 31st, 2017.
