The winter basketball registration period is now closed. A meeting was held with parish coordinators on 10/18 to review placement of 6th-8th grade teams. Based on the results of that meeting, we will begin the scheduling process this weekend. Timelines for the boys and girls seasons can be seen on our league pages.
The schedule is now available for the 3rd, 4th, and 8th grade tournaments. All coaches have been sent an email reminding them about the tournament. Coaches, PLEASE REPORT YOUR TOURNAMENT SCORES IN A TIMELY MANNER. Teams are advanced through the tournament based on a score being reported. If one of the teams wins the first two sets, a third set will NOT be played. If your parish is hosting a championship or consolation game, you should be receiving an email from the league about trophy pickup and/or delivery. All coaches will be sent an email on the day the schedule is released with information about the tournament. Good luck to all teams!
