Basketball is a winter sport for boys and girls in grades 3-8. Registration is in September with late registration open until mid-October. Cost is $70 per player. There are tryouts the last two weeks of October as we usually have 3 to 8 teams per age division. Practices are twice a week at SMM (some teams might have one practice at a non-SMM facility) starting in late-October. League games (usually 6 to 7 depending on number of teams in league) are played Saturdays/Sundays at various schools in December and January. All teams will participate in a Christmas tournament during the holiday break. Tournament (5th - 8th grades) begins the first week of February with the finals either the 2nd or 3rd weekend of February.
