2024 Spring Season

  • MEDIA DAY - All teams will have photos taken - team and individual which will to be used to promote and highlight throughout the season
  • SKILLS CLINICS - To be offered with official partnership of “its possible basketball” ; this may also be offered to those who try out and do not make a team 
  • WELCOME OR NEW GIRLS’ DIRECTOR - Gregg Antoch  - Here is what he had to say .

“ To me, especially at the youth and middle school level, coaching basketball should be about improving individual skills while teaching what it means to play within a team and simply growing the love of the game within our players. There is nothing more satisfying than seeing players you have coached at the youth level go on to have great success on their middle school, high school or even college teams and knowing you had a small part in that “ 

  • 2024 SPRING SEASON FORMAT:   6 weekend tournaments and 2 practices per week ( 2.5 hours combined ). Practices will begin the week of March 12th and run through mid June depending on coaches tournament selection.

    • Weekends selected will be the sole desecration of the coach. Some teams will work collaboratively (Coach, parents & players) to avoid conflicts with school sports.
