2017-2018 ELO Basketball Season!!

Greetings ELO Families & Friends,

Basketball season is nearly upon us and I wanted to send out a few reminders for the upcoming season and some important dates to remember. This year’s basketball season will kick off a little earlier than in the past with first games taking place November 27th. As a staff, we feel that this will alleviate the pressures of the season running into the optimist baseball season and try outs.

Registration- Registrations will open September 1st through November 3rd. Please make every effort to register during this time period as we will NOT be accepting any late registrations.

Interested in Coaching??- The coaches’ application will open on September 1st and run through the conclusion of the draft. Volunteers are what makes this league so successful. We ask for anyone’s help with coaching our youth. Some coaches last year also coach two teams. So it would be great if we can get more people on board and step up to be coaches.

Assessments Dates (tentative)-

November 6th- 3rd/4th Grade Boys- 6 pm

5th/6th Grade Boys- 7:30 pm

November 7th- 7th/8th Grade Boys- 6 pm

Players’ Draft Date and Time (tentative)-
