About our league:

Basketball leagues are co-ed for the following divisions: K5, 1st, 2nd/3rd, 4th/5th.

For 6th/7th/8th grade we offer boys basketball teams as well as girl basketball teams.

Cheer squads are determined by grade. In most cases, like age/grades cheer together. All cheer squads will wear identical uniforms. No cheer squad will cheer for a specific team. Rather, squads will cheer and encourage all teams that are playing. Cheerleaders will perform cheers and chants on the sidelines during the game. At the end of each quarter and halftime, cheerleaders will take to the middle of the gym to perform a cheer.

Practices will be one hour each week. Practices dates and times have not yet been determined. We make every effort to accommodate schedules, but can not guarantee a specific practice night or time.
