How to Help?

Boys Basketball (Gr 4-8)

Nov – Jan Boys Basketball includes a 4th grade team and typically a 5/6 & Cadet “A” and “B” team.

Coaches work with kids

  • Early/Mid-November thru mid/late January
  • 2-3 times per week
  • Practices range from 60 or 90 min, depending on gym time.
  • Games run 60 minutes  (+ travel time for away games)
  • A few other commitments for skills evaluation and pre- and post-season coaches meeting

If you are interested in helping with boys basketball, please contact Duane Marks.

Girls Kickball (Gr 4-8)

Aug – Sep Girls Kickball is a fun way to get into the swing of the new school year. Seasons are typically about 3 weeks, beginning on the first week of school. Teams usually play 7 games during that time. We practice when we can! I suggest 1 practice per game, depending on availability of the parking lot.

We can always use coaches for 4th, 5/6 and Cadet.

Please contact Molly Sowar if you are interested!

Girls Basketball (Gr 4-8)
