Basketball is an indoor sport available to all 4th and 5th grade students. The boys and girls each have their own season. All students are required to have a physical on file with the school nurse. The season consists of approximately 6 practices with the season ending with a friendly competition held at the Middle School against the Grant White team. It is a general requirement that the player dress accordingly and wear gym shoes. Coaches typically focus on the basic rules of the sport and stress the importance of fair play and good sportsmanship. Students are expected to attend all practices and be in good standing with their grades and classroom behavior. This sport is a privilege, not a right. Any student in violation of these guidelines can be suspended from practices/game and/or removed from the team.
