HOUSE LEAGUE

The House League features girls from grades kindergarten through eighth grade and is divided into four different levels:  Little Timers (Kindergarten and 1st Grade), Starters (2nd and 3rd Grade), Juniors (4th through 6th Grade) and Seniors (6th through 8th Grade).  Below is a description of the various levels of our House League for the 2018-19 season:

 

Little Timers (Kindergarten and First Grade)

Cost:  $100

Dates:  Dec. 9, 16; Jan. 6, 13, 20, 27; Feb. 3, 10, 24; March 3, 10

Times:  Sundays from Noon to 1 p.m.

Girls will be taught the game in a clinic session coordinated by long-time youth coaches and current high school players. There will be no permanent “teams” but all the girls will be taught the same skills and techniques; in the last few weeks, girls will play organized games.

 

Starters (2nd and 3rd Grade)

Cost: $130

Dates:  Dec. 9, 16; Jan. 6, 13, 20, 27; Feb. 3, 10, 24; March 3, 10

Times:  Sundays; 45-minute Clinic and 45-minute Game each week; Sessions are 1:30 -3 p.m. or 3-4:30 p.m.

All Starters participants will participate in a 45-hour clinic each Sunday and then play a game each week with their assigned team. Teams will not be divided until after at least two weeks of clinic sessions (which will be 60 minutes until teams are decided). Again, the clinics will be administered by long-time youth coaches and current high school players.   The games will not have a score but will be four quarters and administered by referees.


 

Juniors (4th through Beginning 6th Grade)

Playing “Up”
While all girls will be expected to play at their grade level, we understand that exceptions will need to be made in extraordinary cases. With BOARD APPROVAL, girls may play up one grade level if it best fits their abilities. For example, a 1st grader could potentially play up in Starters, a 3rd grader could potentially play in Juniors and a 5th grader could play in Seniors. Again, the only way this can happen is with board approval.
