Boys Basketball - Any third through sixth grade boy can play on the boys basketball team. Several area schools are involved in the league, therefore, we play at home and have away games. Mr. Esposito is the coach.

The season runs from November to the end of February. Parents need to provide transportation after the practices and to the games. A permission slip and code of ethics form is required to join.
