The FYSA Basketball provides a fun and safe environment for players to learn the fundamentals of basketball. Each child will play equal time in each game throughout the season, while learning sportsmanship, teamwork and building self-confidence.
Kindergarten through third grade girls and boys who are interested in basketball are welcome to participate. Players from these grades will be divided into three divisions:
**Kindergarten and 1st Grade Boys and Girls Skills Program
**2nd and 3rd Grade Girls House League
**2nd and 3rd Grade Boys House League
What to expect:
Our Kindergarten and 1st grade program focuses on basic fundamentals through fun drills and contests. There is no league play at this level, but players will be involved in various team competitions. Sessions are held Saturdays in January and February.
Registration fee is $40.
Our 2nd and 3rd grade league provides a more traditional game experience with some additional rules that help teams establish and run an offense, and work on man to man defense. Teams will be balanced and fair based on skills performed during assessment night.
Typically there will be two practices each week with games on Saturdays. Teams at this level will play in a league with other north metro suburbs. Games will be played in the Spring Lake Park school district.
Girls season runs from mid October through December.
Boys season runs from January through mid March.
Registration fee is $90. In addition to the registration fees, parents are expected to volunteer 8 hours at Fridley’s tournaments. Funds raised at these tournaments go towards club expenses and help maintain reasonable registration fees.
