2016 Spring Youth Basketball Programs

Schedule Changes For All Divisions *PLEASE READ*

April 4, 2016
Hi everyone,
 
Due to this weather, our HS Spring Sports programs will not be able to outside and will have to use our facility time.  There is nothing anyone can do about this weather, but we have been used to these spring storms over the years.   With that being said we have worked hard to build in make-up time so that all of our programs can get rescheduled to best accomodate all of our programs.  Obviously, this is not idea, but we ensure everyone that no one will be short-changed and that everyone will receive the same amount of instruction and game time. 

Everyone, please read each division summary for your schedule change.  Elite Divisions:  Because we are moving to smaller gyms for our some sessions, players will be separated into groups.  Please make sure to read the following schedules so that you show up at the correct times.

Thank you to everyone for your cooperation!

Thanks,
Dan
LLB
 
SCHEDULE FOR ALL DIVISIONS
THROUGH 4/17
 
 
ROOKIE DIVISION

Tonight, Wednesday 4/6 Session will be at MCCARTHY MIDDLE SCHOOL!

Coach Allen all ready sent out emails letting everyone know that the Rookie Division would now take place at McCarthy Middle School.  This is a bigger space that Coach Allen and myself feel would be more beneficial to the players in the program.  We will be at McCarthy every Wednesday from now on.

LION LEAGUE SPRING YOUTH PROGRAMS SPRING 2016

PROGRAM FOR BOYS AND GIRLS GRADES K-8

 

Want to get better?

Then Lion League Basketball is the program for you. This spring we will be entering our 10th Season as the #1 Skill Development Program in Greater Lowell.  This season Lion League Basketball will be offering more Instruction than ever with a staff that contains Area High School Coaches, College Players, and Travel Coaches!  

Our Mission at Lion League Basketball is for each and everyone of our players to improve their skills and understanding of the game.  We want to make you better!

Lion League Basketball Programs will begin on April 2nd and will run until early June.  

Lion League will offer programs in the following divisions:

PEE WEE BASKETBALL: Boys and Girls Grades K-2. Players will meet on Sunday Evenings for Skills Clinic and Monday Nights for Instructional Game Sessions.

Girls Rookie Division: Girls Grades 3 and 4. Players will meet for 2 hour skills clinics/games on Saturday mornings from 10AM-12PM.  This program will only have a limited amount of spots.

Boys Rookie Division: Boys Grades 3 and 4. Players will meet on Sunday evenings for Skills Clinic and Wednesday evenings for Instructional Games Nights. 

MS GIRLS SATURDAY DIVISION: Girls Grade 5-8. Girls will meet Saturday mornings from 10AM-12PM.  Girls will participate in Skills Clinics and Games during this 2 hour period.

Players come from all over the Merrimack Valley to participate in these programs and each year our programs to continue to grow.  Lion League maintains relationships with High School Coaches all throughout the area and this season a lot of these High School Coaches have been added to our Lion League Staff.

Lion League is designed to conflict minimally with other Spring Sports. We understand that players play other sports, and we look to offer the opportunity to those athletes to be able to play Spring Sports while also being able to make improvements in their basketball skills by participating in Lion League.

Don't miss out on what looks to be our best program yet. We look forward to seeing everyone in the gym on April 2nd

FAMILY DISCOUNTS

Lion League offers Family Discounts. If you are registering multiple players you will receive sizable discounts off your overall registration costs.

FINANCIAL CONCERNS?

Financial Concerns? We can always work something out! We want all kids to be able to participate.  

Please email Coach Hart at: lionleaguebasketball@gmail.com if this is a concern. All matters of this nature will be kept strictly confidential.

Costs

Lion League costs are more expensive than that of local town leagues, but far less expensive than other private off-season sports programs.  We are constantly striving to offer more for our kids while limiting costs.  We currently are combining High Level Instruction, with a full game schedule.  When you factor out hourly costs our programs cost less than most other off-season programs!  That is an unbeatable value!
