Elementary Hoops (winter)

Elementary Hoops is the place to be for league play for kids in second- through fifth-grades! Elementary Hoops plays from late October until winter break at SRS, WES, and NPE. Second- and third-graders have one weekday practice and one weekend game each week. Fourth- and fifth-graders have one weekday practice and two weekend games each week (see below for details). Please make sure you register your child through the correct link below.

Elementary Hoops is run by parent coaches.  We will open limited registration and then open up more teams/ spots as we have enough volunteers to run the program.  Want to guarantee your child a spot and help make the program a success?  Volunteer to coach when you sign up!

Note: Tournament Hoops begins right after winter break for fourth and fifth-graders. You must play Elementary Hoops to be eligible for Tournament Hoops. If we are able to find appropriate local tournaments for third-graders, we will also offer Tournament Hoops for third-graders, as interest allows.

SECOND- AND THIRD-GRADERS

Players in the 2/3 division play 4v4 format to increase the number of touches on the ball and to encourage good positioning on the court. Because this limits roster sizes, we will need many coaches. Please sign up to help. You can help even if you can’t make every practice or every game.
