3. PLEASE NOTICE: This is NOT the school basketball program. This is NOT the summer camp

or open gym weekly workout/open gym. If someone does not make the team, they can still

attend summer open gyms and camp next year to get in the gym to improve.

4. The top 14­16 players from each class will be invited to join to form 2 teams per grade

level. If we have 2 teams we will have an A team and a B team (certain classes we may have

1 team of 8­9 kids factoring in available coaches, talent, and # of players)

1. Coach Bales and the varsity staff has the final say in who will make these teams and

who coaches these teams.

2. Families must consider the time and financial commitment closely.

3. Young student­athletes go through many changes. Many will gain and others will lose

interest in youth activities. We will seek the best prepared student­athletes for this


4. Please stay involved! We have more basketball activities to come. These teams do not

determine what happens in the future. We have had some players over the years on

youth level B teams that end up being varsity players. We have had some A team

players get cut or not make the varsity team.

5. We will name the team by the end of September at the latest

6. If we decide to enter other leagues or tournaments we will notify you ASAP. The NIBL

is what you will be initially paying for but there may be others we decide to enter.

7. Please contact Coach Bales if you have any questions.
