Registration for the 2017-18 Basketball Academy is NOW CLOSED. Registration has opened in June for the last five years (2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017). This season registration opened on July 4th. Girls in grades 5th-6th for the 2017-18 school year were allowed to register for this program. The head coach for the academy will be Brittany Cox.
The format will be similar to the past fo academy teams with 2-3 practices / month and 6-8 extra tournaments during the time frame of November 2017-January 2018, then a break for our regular teams to practice and play from February-June, then resume academy practice and play in July-August 2018. There will be a break again August – October and the academy team will close out October with practices and a tournament.
Options to bundle the spring 2018 and / or the fall 2018 seasons along with the December 2017 and June 2018 basketball camps will also be available. The spring 2018 / fall 2018 registration is the normal tournament / invitational season that we offer.
Coach Cox is currently the head coach of our transitional 7th/8th grade team and a varsity girls high school coach.
The four options, again first-come / first-served (meaning registration and payment), are posted below. Once we have thirteen registered, we will close the academy registration. Bundles are available which include paying for the academy only, paying for the academy and the spring 2018 regular season team, paying for the academy and the spring and fall 2018 season and an option to include basketball camps in December 2017 and 2018 as well.
Option 1: Pay for the academy only (no spring 2018 registration, no fall 2018 registration, no basketball camps involved): $200.00 or $20.00 / month*.
Option 2: Pay for the academy with spring 2018 OR fall 2018 season registration: $350.00 or $35.00 / month*.
Option 3: Pay for the academy with spring 2018 OR fall 2018 season registration with the December 2017 and June 2018 basketball camps: $400.00 or $45.00 / month*.
Option 4: Pay for the academy with both spring 2018 AND fall 2018 season registration with the December 2017 and June 2018 basketball camps: $600.00 or $65.00 / month*.
*= Monthly fee works as follows: Pay the monthly fee to register and then the next payment is due in November 2016.
FAQ: Why is the monthly fee cost more over time than the one time payment? Answer: Unfortunately, some participants drip off after a few months in the program which throws off roster numbers, practice plans and practice / tournament fees. This is in place to allow our program to run smoothly and effectively.
