Please do NOT bring your own basketball. When checking in for evaluations please make sure to put the ID # on the front.

With everything indoors this season, we ask that players bring minimal family members (ideally 1 parent) to ensure as much physical distancing as possible. We encourage spectators to stay outdoors for the evaluations, but if you would like to go inside, we require all spectators to wear a mask and observe only from the bleachers. In the event there is no space in the bleachers we ask you to wait outside until the current groups finish. Spectators that do not follow our guidelines will be asked to leave the facility in violation of our approval.
