Basketball: Spring Basketball still has slots available for 5/6th boys and 3/4th girls!

Spring Basketball is for boys and girls, 3rd grade through 8th grade, practicing and playing weekday evenings.  Divisions are 3/4th (reduced height nets), 5/6th and 7/8th grades.  Games will start mid-April, and practices will start as soon as teams form.  There are usually 2 practices per week, and that often goes to 1 practice per week (depending on the coach and team) once games start.  Games are schedule Monday through Thursday, with games schedule here in NK, and in Gorst.  We partner with SKYAA to ensure a good quantity of teams to compete against.  Last games should be NLT the first week of June. 

We do try to keep buddies together, and if anyone is interested in coaching, or bringing the team members together from winter, I can build your team like that.  Let me know what we can do to help make the spring season a good basketball season for you!!  To sign up online, go to: Catalog – REC1.

PARENTS! PLEASE DO NOT DROP OFF PLAYERS OUTDOORS AND LEAVE!  Parents should turnover players directly to the coach in the gym.
