We will be making every attempt to schedule our games around the Spartan program to avoid conflicts and allowing players to play both. As schedules are just coming out we have some flexibility and we think the Spartan program is wonderful. In the past this has worked very well. There should be a 3 week span of overlap between the programs. Hopefully you can play in both programs.
Games - will be played at SJSH, Alliance, WFSS, CSS

LEAGUE INFORMATION - Our league is fun competitive. We use carded referees and play on full size basketball courts. Our most cherished rule is our participation rule. No player can play more than four minutes more than any other player. Our timers ensure that all players get an equal chance and any team violating the participation rule are defaulted. We want everyone to have a chance to play when the game is on the line. Players are placed on teams by the league officials. Players can request ONE friend to join them on their team but both friends MUST select each other. All of our teams compete for the league championship offered in their age category. Championship teams win medals as do the finalists.

EVALUATION CAMPS - We use evaluation camps to determine the skill level of players for the creation of the teams. Evaluation camps are mandatory, if you are going to miss you need to contact the league office by email. We try to make even teams and therefore need to see our players. No player may attend a camp for a higher age without attending a camp for their own age. We evaluate each player secretly at this camp. We then strive to create a league of balanced teams. 2023 EVALUATION CAMPS - Attend Your Group ONLY PLAYERS MUST ATTEND THE CAMP OF THEIR AGE EVEN IF THEY WANT TO PLAY UP. ALL DECISIONS WILL BE MADE AT THE EVALUATION CAMP AND PLAYERS CAN ASK TO CHANGE DIVISIONS ONLY IF SPACE EXISTS. Some players will be moved to different divisions but this MUST be done by our league office and not by players or parents. Players may voice their request at the evaluation camp of their age.
