MS House League
The Middle School (MS) House League program is a recreational basketball program for boys in grades 6 through 8 and girls in grades 5 through 8. All on-time registrants will be placed on a team - as long as we have an adequate number of coaches registered and approved to support the number of players registered.
All house league players must attend a skills evaluation; dates will be announced via e-mail and will be posted on the league website and league calendar. The middle school house league encourages the teaching of strong fundamentals and equitable playing time for all players.
There are playing time rules in place to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to play - for example, on a team with 8 players, everyone is guaranteed to play no less than 50% and no more than 75% of the game when all 8 players play.
PLEASE NOTE - all players interested in playing in the Middle School Travel League must register in the MS House League program and attend player evaluations. Failure to do so may prevent your child from being considered eligible for MS travel consideration.
Evaluations are typically conducted in mid- to late September, with team drafts held in October. Practices typically begin the second week of November, and games are played on Saturdays, beginning in mid- to late November. Teams will play 10 regular season games (weather permitting), with all teams participating in the single-elimination playoff tournament at season's end.
To maximize available playing time, we set a target team size of 8 players per team - though if we have a shortage of coaches, we may set team sizes higher to reasonably accommodate the players registered. We otherwise do make every effort to meet the 8 player per team target.
