PLEASE SIGN UP TO COACH WHEN YOU REGISTER YOUR CHILD TO PLAY.  We will provide instruction and weekly lesson plans.  No basketball experience is necessary – just a desire to spend quality time with your child. There will be a training for all volunteer coaches and mandatory background screening. This training will focus on coaching fundamentals and philosophy as well as provide guidance for creating and running practices and games.
