Program Focus The purpose of the 3rd & 4th grade In-House program is to provide a fun environment for girls to continue to improve their fundamental skills and knowledge of the game. At this level referees are present to monitor the game and provide skill development guidance.
When and Where Do The Kids Practice/Play?
3rd & 4th grade will practice Monday nights at Forest Hills with a game on Saturdays at Oak Point in Eden Prairie. Monday practices will rotate between either a 6:15 or 7:30 pm start time and will last 75 minutes. Saturday games will rotate between an (9:45 am, 11:00 am or 12:15 pm start time.
Registration Registration will be limited to 64 players. Any kids on a wait list are not guaranteed team placement. No player will be allowed to participate in practices/games until ALL fees are paid. Financial assistance is available for those in need on a case-by-case basis. Please contact our Treasurer for more information.
Teams During registration each player is allowed one play-with request. A play-with request must be mutual between two players. If the request is not mutual, there is no guarantee of placement on the same team. Your child may be played on a team where she doesn't know all of the girls. Please embrace that and let your child meet and play on a team with kids from other schools.
Teams will be limited 7-10 players per team.
For the EPGBA to run a successful basketball program, we need volunteers for Grade Level Commissions (2-3), Head Coaches (1 per team), Assistant Coaches (1 per team) and a Team Manager (1 per team). Please visit our In-House volunteer tab for more details.
Each player will receive a basketball jersey. Players should bring their own (27.5") basketball, filled water bottle and face mask/gator to practices/games.
