Lil' Ballers will receive a jersey top, Youth Basketball will receive a jersey top and bottom. The uniforms are handed out before the first game.

Prior to games we offer skills assessments for each player. These skills assessments are not tryouts. Each player is put on a team. It is our goal during team selection to balance out age, skill and coachability. We run assessments to try and ensure teams are balanced. Lil' Ballers are placed by age and don't need to attend a skills assessment.
