Leagues are based off player's current age on August 31, 2017. All players will be drafted onto a team. We will not take requests to play with friends or coaches. Teams can not stay together from year-to-year. Coaches can only "save" their child and the assistants child. Teams may only have one head coach and one assistant coach. All players will need to attend the evaluation, and each player will be selected onto a team. This is not a try-out.
Evaluation/ Draft Process:
We will be holding a mandatory evaluation day. All registered players and coaches will need to attend. Coaches kids will not need to participate. During the evaluation period players will be taken through multiple drills. At this time they will receive instruction from the staff working the drills. Coaches will be evaluating each player based on their basketball skill level and listening skills. Players will not find out which team they are on at the end of the draft that night. Coaches will be contacting parents once rosters are created and sent to all coaches later that week. All players will be placed onto a team, and will not know what their evaluation grade was or when they were drafted. We do not take requests to be placed on a certain coach's team or to be placed with friends. Teams are only allowed one head coach and one assistant coach. Coaches are only allowed to "save" their child(ren) and their assistants coach's child(ren). All other players must be drafted onto the team. Siblings in the same age division will automatically be placed on the same team unless specified differently by the parents.
Coaches / Draft info Meeting:
There will be a mandatory coaches meeting on Thursday, October 19, 2017 at the Hillsboro-Leipers Fork Recreation Center (5325 Old Hwy. 96 West). Only coaches will need to attend this night. I will contact coaches the week of October 9th with more information.
