EXPLANATION OF AN ABILITY-BASED LEAGUE
The ability-based format is designed to allow the more Advanced players within an age group to participate in a Biddy League oriented to competitive play, while the Recreation League will be for less experienced players and provide emphasis on fundamentals. The objective is that there will be no major differences between the Biddy and Recreation Leagues. In order for an age group to be split into two leagues there must be a minimum of 10 teams. The leagues will be split on a maximum 40-60% basis, with the players evaluating the highest in a combination of individual and game skills being placed in the Biddy League and the remainder of the players participating in the Recreation League. Parents may request that players only participate in the Recreation League, even if their child evaluates as a Biddy player. A player must be evaluated in order to participate in the Biddy League.


REMINDER
Play-up requests can only be done at the time of registration.   You will have to come into the office and fill out a play-up request form. 


                             BOYS BASKETBALL EVALUATION SCHEDULE


Players must be registered in the league in order to evaluate. Registration will not be taken at evaluations. Unregistered players will not be allowed to evaluate.

It is highly recommended that each participant attend evaluations. This enables us to evenly distribute teams as best possible. Any player that does not evaluate will have the following restrictions:

·        A point cap per game will be accessed as follows:
   o          7 Year Olds – 10 points per game
   o          8 & 9 Year Olds – 12 points per game
   o          10, 11, & 12 Year Olds – 14 points per game
·        Will not be allowed to be a pool player
·        Will not be allowed to play in the Biddy League

You will be able to check in up to 10 minutes after the scheduled time. If you come later than 10 minutes after the scheduled time you will not be able to evaluate.
