Players must register and tryout for their grade level.  Our coaching staff reserves the right to move kids up a grade.

All players that want to play on a Grizzlies Youth Basketball Team must register and attend the tryout session on October 25, 2016 for their grade level.  Some players will be invited back to the second tryout session on October 26.  Players that will be invited back will be notified via email on the morning of October 26.

At this time, Grizzlies Youth Basketball is planning on creating the following teams:

6th Grade1 Team – 8-10 players per team.

7th Grade1 Teams – 8-10 players per team.

8th Grade1 - 2 Teams – 8-10 players per team.  

Additional teams could be added if there was enough talent and interest.  Additional teams would need provide their own coaches and find their own practice time.  Our staff does not have the time to take on more than one team , nor do we have enough gym time to provide practice for additional teams.

IF WE CANNOT FIELD COMPETITIVE TEAMS, WE MAY NOT HAVE ANY TEAMS IN A PARTICULAR GRADE.  

Our teams will play in two leagues, with one weekday game (Wednesday or Thursday) and one Saturday game.  Our season will run from October to February.  Games will start in November / December.  Teams will also practice 1-2 times per week.

Players need to commit to attending all practices and games.  Attendance at all practices/games is mandatory.
