Basketball Team Assignment System

Teams are system generated based on the scores of evaluation day. This is a co-ed league and the system considers skill when assigning teams, it does NOT consider gender. Every attempt is made to ensure there are at least two players of each gender on each team.

The system will attempt to honor the following registration information:

  • Up to two coach requests per coach, including the children of the coach
  • One carpool link per player. This is only recognized by the system if the players are in the same division and they request each other. If you have multiple children in the same division and they need to be on the same team, they need to select each other as the carpool link.
  • One practice night exclusion may be selected at registration. Additional exclusion nights cannot be guaranteed.

Evaluations and Orientations

Every basketball and cheer participant must attend at least one Evaluation Day for the following:

  • Uniform sizing - samples will be available
  • Basketball players only MUST be evaluated for team placement.

Evaluations will take place in the Trinity Gym. This is an open house type event and you can come up anytime during the following scheduled times:

  • Oct. 26, between 9 a.m. and noon
