Intramural Club Basketball
Intramural club basketball is a joint, coed program open to students in grades 2-4. This after-school program will be held once a week and will focus on teaching students the rules of the game and the basic fundamentals of basketball. It is meant to introduce the game of basketball at the most beginner of levels, similar to a camp setting. Students in this program will not compete in games against other schools, but will only play small sided games against the other students within the program.
Interscholastic Team Basketball
Interscholastic team basketball will have two separate programs - a boys program and a girls program. Teams will consist of students in grades 4-8 and will have practices multiple days a week, including Saturdays. Students will also compete in sanctioned games against opposing schools. Though this program will focus on teaching students the rules of the game and the basic fundamentals of basketball, practices will be more involved with offensive and defensive team concepts. When it comes time to competing in games against other schools, game situations and opposing personnel are some factors that will dictate who will play. That being said, playing in a game is not guaranteed in this program. Many other factors such as discipline and grasp of concepts are factored into decision making.
4th graders are allowed to participate in both club and team. Being a part of both club and team will only expose the student to more basketball and will help improve their overall skills of the game.
