Schedule Changes For All Divisions *PLEASE READ*
April 4, 2016
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!
SCHEDULE FOR ALL DIVISIONS
Tonight, Wednesday 4/6 Session will be at MCCARTHY MIDDLE SCHOOL!

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 .
Lion League offers Family Discounts. If you are registering multiple players you will receive sizable discounts off your overall registration costs.
Financial Concerns? We can always work something out! We want all kids to be able to participate.
Please email Coach Hart at: firstname.lastname@example.org if this is a concern. All matters of this nature will be kept strictly confidential.
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!
