Winter Basketball

Join us for an exciting season of basketball at Girls Place!  Basketball is offered to all girls in 1st-6th 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 3 vs. 3 format to encourage passing and ball handling skills.

The cost for the 2018 Winter Basketball season is $75 and includes your daughter’s $20 Girls Place Membership for 2018!

Our coaches are all volunteers from the community who are passionate about basketball and giving back to their community. We rely on our volunteer coaches to provide a nurturing and enriching learning environment.   We want to teach our girls how to play sports – starting with a solid foundation of the fundamentals while gradually implementing new skills and challenging them throughout the season.  If you are interested in coaching this season, please complete our application!  All coaches are required to complete to a Level 2 FDLE Background Screen prior to coaching.

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. Kaihla (Kaihla@girlsplace.net) if you are interested in applying for a scholarship.

Sponsorships and donations are vital to the success of the athletic program.  If you are interested in sponsoring a team or the general athletics fund, please complete the sponsorship form and contact Ms. Kaihla via e-mail (Kaihla@girlsplace.net) for more information.
