Join us for an exciting season of basketball at Girls Place! In previous season, basketball is offered to all girls in 1st-6th grade. We are now extending our offerings to girls in 7th & 8th grade! The girls will learn the fundamentals of basketball in a energetic and encouraging environment. In order to ensure our players learn the game the right way – we play games and scrimmages in a 5 vs. 5 format to encourage passing and ball handling skills.
The cost for the 2019 Winter Basketball season is $75 and includes your daughter’s $20 Girls Place Membership for 2019!
Every season we are able to provide a limited number of scholarship opportunities to our athletes. Priority is given to families experiencing financial hardship and extenuating circumstances that would otherwise limit their ability to participate. Families are required to volunteer in exchange for their participation fees. Please contact Ms. Charlie (Charlie@girlsplace.net) if you are interested in applying for a scholarship.
This season, we will be using a financial assistance application to apply for a bartering scholarship. The administrative staff and the economic status of Girls Place shall determine the amount of members assisted and the level of assistance.
