2021 Basketball Information
Northland Sports Alliance offers basketball for boys and girls Pre-Kindergarten (meaning they will start Kindergarten next fall) through 8th grade.
Registration runs through October 25, 2021.
Current COVID - 19 Protocol: Due to COVID - 19, spectators will be required to wear a mask. Participants are not required to wear a mask but are always welcome to if they prefer. Our trainers will wear masks. This is all subject to change.
FUN PROGRAM - Our Fun program is designed for kids in Pre-Kindergarten (must be 4 by August 1, 2021), Kindergarten and First Grade who have not participated in basketball before. They meet on Saturday mornings starting in January for one hour where they have a 30 minute practice, followed by a 30 minute game. We use trainers to work with the kids and teach them to love the game of basketball in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. No score or standings are kept. Cost is $100 per athlete.
Our fun program will meet on the following Saturdays: January 8, 15, 22, 29, February 5 and 12.
INTERMEDIATE PROGRAM - Our intermediate program is for Kindergarten and 1st graders who have participated in basketball before and want a little more competition. Scores and standings are kept. Practices are held during the week with games on Saturday's. Cost is $120 per athlete. This fee does include a t-shirts / jersey. Practices will start in November and games start in December and run through February.
2ND - 6TH GRADE - Our 2nd through 6th grade program starts with practices in November and games in December and run through February. Cost is $120 per athlete which includes a jersey.
7TH & 8TH GRADE - Our 7th and 8th grade program starts a little later than the other programs to give kids an opportunity to try out for their middle school teams if they choose. If they don't make their middle school teams then we hope they join us. This program starts in December and runs through February. Cost is $120 per athlete and does include a jersey.
TEAM REGISTRATION - We do offer a team registration of $1000 per team. Team fees DO NOT include jerseys. If you register as a team, you have total control over your roster - you can have 5 - 15 kids per team - up to you.
PRACTICES - We use Park Hill School's for our practices and games which means we are at their mercy. We do our best to get everyone one practice per week. In the event gym time is limited, practices may have to be on split gyms. If siblings attend practices, they are to remain in the gym with a parent supervising them at all times. They are not to roam the halls of the schools.
1. Before the rosters are finalized on October 27th we will refund the entire fee less a $10 administrative fee.
2. Before games start on December 4th we will refund 50% of the registration fee.
3. Once games start on December 4th there are no refunds.
WEATHER HOTLINE is 1-800-599-0673 - Every attempt is made to update the hotline as soon as we determine games are cancelled. We update two hours before game times. We only update the hotline when we cancel so if you hear an old date and it's within two hours of the first game, we are playing.
