2018-19 Basketball Academy Program.

The 2018-19 4th-8th grade basketball academy has a different format than previous years.

The 3rd-5th grade academy team will be coached by Emily Rhew. The 6th-8th grade team will be coached by Merritt Rizoti.

The team will begin practice in November and run through January,

Rebecca Greenwell, former Duke Women’s Basketball Player, skill sessions from 4:30-6:00 on Wednesdays in November – January will be part of the 2018-19 academy at no extra charge. Information can be found under “R-Ball” on this website.

The team will practice once a week after the fall 2018 season has finished for an hour and fifteen minutes one evening a week (working around Coach Rizoti’s and Coach Rhew’s high school schedule).

The 4th-5th grade team will play somewhere between 3-4 tournaments during the November-January time frame.  The 6th-8th grade team will play between 4-6 tournaments during the November-January time frame. All tournaments will be local with the majority held at the Gateway YWCA.

There is a limit of twelve players for both academy teams.
