Registration: August and September
Fees: $140 for Youth, $160 for Varsity paid by credit card on St. Sue Booster’s website.
In grades 3 through 5, our focus is on providing an instructional experience. Our goal when players are placed on teams in grades 3 through 5 is to balance the teams.
For grades 6, 7, and 8, our focus is to enhance a player’s individual and team's athletic progress. Our selection process is based on objective assessments of student athletes’ skills and abilities.
Evaluations: To accomplish this team construction, evaluations are held for all grades before the beginning of the season. See St Susanna Boosters Policy Handbook for details.
Games: 10 league games in addition to pre- and post-season tournaments. Additional tournaments are based on grade level.
Practices: Typically 2 practices a week for 60-90 minutes
Tournaments: Based on grade level and team; Balanced teams will participate in the post-season tournament as well as 1 additional tournament during the season. Varsity teams will participate in the post-season tournament and are eligible to enter up to 2 regular-season tournaments covered by Boosters with their registration fee. Additional tournaments beyond that will be at the discretion of the coach with input from parents and additional fees to be covered by families.
League Tournament: The league tournament is typically played at the end of the regular season in mid to late February.
Our Goals: Grow the players' love for the sport of basketball, teach the fundamentals and reinforce the importance of our faith in all we do.
Coaches Corner: Parents are encouraged to volunteer as head coaches and assistant coaches for grades 3 through 5. Non-parent coaches are required for A and B varsity-level teams, but parents are allowed to coach any C-level team. No basketball experience is required to coach.
