WELCOME
PLEASE NOTE: The YOUTH BASKETBALL PROGRAM requires volunteers to function. We are currently seeking volunteers for the following positions:

2-3 grade coaches
4-5/6 grade coaches
Referees
Score Keeper
Score Clock

Without the help of our community volunteers, we will not be able to facilitate this program.

Welcome to Youth Basketball 2019! We look forward to a rewarding and fun program, working to build foundational basketball skills that are transferable to all sports and everyday life.

In an effort to further develop basic fundamentals within our youth players we will implement the basketball camp concept, splitting grades 2-3 into CAMP 1, and grades 4-5/6 into CAMP 2 - working on basic fundamental skills from mid-August through mid-September. The purpose of the camp structure is to break down the game of basketball, instilling fundamental skills, game skills/knowledge and create a team culture. Coaches will also host scrimmage events, where parents and fans can join them at the gym for watching and cheering!

The regular season will begin mid-September and run through mid-October, players will be split into teams, play regular season games, and participate in tournament play. For those in grades 4-5/6, ALL STAR team selection will take place at the last game of the tournament. We will provide more details regarding the WRG vs PSG ALL STAR TOURNAMENTS. Grades 2-3 will play their last game on October 10th, with an opportunity for player acknowledgment, coach appreciation and photos.

Parents/Guardians! Please note that we provide updates, schedules, and all need-to-know information via EMAIL. Ensure that your email is correct in our records, and that you check it regularly.
