Dear Coaches, Parents and Players:
We are excited to announce that we are planning to have a basketball season and that registration is now OPEN.
We hope you consider registering for this year’s season. We appreciate that due to the impact of COVID-19 this upcoming season will not look like ones in the past. As a program we are finalizing a number of policies designed to keep you and your families safe. We are working closely under the guidance of JCUMC and local health officials to facilitate a season that is safe for all participants. We will be sharing specific policies for JCUMC with you over the coming weeks as they pertain specifically to our program.
We looking forward to this season to work on fundamentals, have fun, be safe and enjoy the game we all love.
In order to maintain a safe environment we have had to make some changes.
• We are limiting the program to 15 teams’ total, with 10 players per a team.
• We will only be operating one court in order to reduce the number of people in our gym
• We will not be offering a 7th or 8th grade program this year.
• Teams will have exclusive use of the gym during practice time.
• Sanitation protocols will be used between all practices and games.
• All non-players will be required to wear masks
Please remember to request your coach from last year if you would like to stay same team and also specify 1 practice day that does not work.
Basketball is offered to boys and girls first grade through sixth grade.
This program is a 1 practice/1 game per week setup.
There will be 9 practices and 8 games scheduled.
Practices begin the Week of January 4th.
First game day is Saturday, January 16, 2021
All leagues are gender specific.
Pricing for the league is tiered by age group.
New Uniforms for each player are available, at a cost of $30.00. There will be two jerseys of better quality and style. We plan to stick with this pattern again for another 3+ years for multiple season use.
Refund Policy: If requested by a family, we will refund 100% prior to January 1st. We will offer 50% refund between January 4th and the end of the fourth week of game play. There will be no refund offered after the fourth week of game play.
Cancellation Policy: If we have to cancel the season based on church / state / county guidelines we will offer a refund prorated based on the number of weeks completed. Example: If we are forced to cancel the season after the second weekend of games, the player would be refunded 6/9 (2/3) of the season. One week of practice and two weeks of game play were completed.
Please consider volunteering to coach!

Volunteer with Positive Coaching Alliance
PCA – Positive Coaching Alliance. We have partnered with PCA this season. Our soccer coaches meeting was fantastic and allowed for a top level coach to speak to the coaches before the season started. Lots of positive feedback by all that participated. We will also have access to online resources, coaching resources, coaching tip and talking points through this relationship. https://www.positivecoach.org/
