USN is excited to provide a winter basketball league for students in grades K-4. The winter basketball league serves as an opportunity for young student-athletes to develop and improve their basketball skills and knowledge. Each grade will have a designated block of time on Saturday for development and game play. The focus during game play is on basketball fundamentals such as shooting, dribbling, passing, and defense.
Clinic and league staff, coaches, and referees will consist of USN coaches and High School basketball players. HS students will have training and a senior advisor to assist them throughout the duration of the league.
On Saturday, January 22, there is a preseason clinic to help your player get ready for the season. Registration is open now.
Grades K-3 will have coed teams with a maximum of seven players and will play a full court, three-on-three format to allow for better development. Fourth grade athletes will be separated by gender with a maximum of 12 players and will play a full court, five on five format.
League details are as follows:
League Dates: Saturday, January 29 – Saturday, March 5
