2021-2022 In-House Basketball Information

 

3-4 Grade Girls In-House 
($165)

At this level, the structure of training sessions will be similar to that of older players.  A greater level of coaching and time will be spent in developing a player's technical (dribbling, passing, catching, shooting and defending) skills, as well as tactical knowledge (positioning, plays, defending, problem solving) and finally, athleticism (speed, strength, footwork, balance).  Evaluations will be conducted prior to the season in order to create teams that are relatively balanced.  The teams will then compete in a league setting, scores and standings will be kept.  An end of the year tournament or playoffs will finish the season.

League Format and Rules

The 3-4 Grade Girls & Boys:

  • The number of teams in the league is based on the total participants and trying to create teams of 7-9 players ( 8 teams is the average)
  • Teams will be assigned a team name, receive uniforms, equipment, gym time and space for practice and will function as stand-along teams.
  • The teams will compete in an in-house MHAA only league and play each team twice or as many as dates allow.
  • Scores will be kept and reported to the League Coordinator or Commissioner.  Standings will be kept and will be used to determine the seeding for the end of the year tournament.
  • Trophies or Medals will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place tournament finishes.

General Rules:

  • All players, coaches and parents will exhibit respectful behavior toward each other and referees.  The Commissioner or Coordinator can have anyone removed for inappropriate behavior
  • Players must be committed to their team by attending practices and games.  Excessive absences may result in removal from the team/league.
  • Proper basketball attire is to be worn at all times and uniforms are to be worn for all competitions.

Team Selection Process for 3-4 Grade Basketball

The Commissioner will contact volunteer coaches and ask them to pair-up with another coach OR the Commissioner can help assign them.  The Coaches’ kids will automatically be assigned to their team.  Rosters will be completed with a draft.  The draft process is:

  • All players will be evaluated by all coaches based on dribbling, shooting, athleticism and playing. 
  • Based on the evaluations, each player will receive scores in each category AND will receive a total score.  The total score will be used for the draft.
  • The draft starts by adding up the scores of each coaches kid.  The team with the highest kids’ scores picks last – the lowest picks first, etc. 
  • Teams pick players for each round until all players are chosen.
  • Rounds continue in order of lowest point total until each player is selected
  • Trades may be made on draft night only and with the approval of the coaches of each team AND the Commissioner (or designee).
