Winter Basketball

Basketball is open to 3rd-8th graders.

Girls  learn the fundamentals of basketball in a energetic and encouraging environment.  The season includes practices twice a week, exhibition to start the season, 6 regular season games, and championships.

The cost for the Basketball season is $100. An additional $25 Girls Place Membership is required.

Financial Assistance
