We still need 2 players for 2-3rd grade girls and 1 player for 4th-5th grade girls. If you are in that age category, please register using the link below!
Practices will start Saturday, December 2nd. Below is the practice schedule. As soon as teams are formed, you will be notified by your coach of your exact time/location for practice. We just wanted to put this out there as a heads up for your potential time for planning purposes.
You should hear from your coach within 36 hrs of your evaluation. If you don't, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
*Co-ed will not have their first practice until the week of December 4th.
Important Notes - Please read before registering...
If you have a balance on your account because you failed to fulfill volunteer requirements from another sport, your child WILL NOT be placed on a team until the balance is paid.
Due to limited gym space, we can only accommodate around 166 players. Please do not delay in registering.
We DO NOT honor requests for coaching or carpooling. We can honor siblings living in the same house hold. If the siblings are also playing for Mill Creek Middle, they will not be allowed to be on the same team.
We can't do it without you! Due to the complexity and time to run a sport the size of basketball, we will be requiring each family to provide two hours of volunteer time per player. If this is not a possibility, you can pay a $50 fee to opt out. This fee will be used to pay someone to do the work a volunteer would normally do.
Registration Fee: $115/player
NO REFUNDS WILL BE PROVIDED
Evaluations are mandatory and will be held the week of November 27th and practices will start December 2nd. The schedule will be on the basketball homepage and Facebook page by November 20th. We will hold a mandatory parent/player meeting during your check in time so please be on time. If you do not get an email about evaluations by November 21st, please check your spam/junk folder and email email@example.com
