2nd Season Hoops

For the player who just cannot get enough hoops.  

2nd season operates differently from our regular season in two ways.

1. There are no weekly practices. We utilize the first fifteen minutes prior to each game to allow coaches to work on skills and drills then go right into gameplay.

2. 2nd season is more relaxed. After a long regular season, we find it important that our players participate in a more relaxed environment while playing the game they love.

We will play games on Saturdays and some Friday evenings. 


Date(s):  2/26/24 through March 2024

Times: TBD



1st/ 2nd

3rd/ 4th



Fee: $80 plus state tax

Register by: 2/26/23
