The philosophy of the girl’s basketball program is to introduce basketball to girls, beginning in 3rd grade and continuing through 8th grade.
In learning and practicing core individual skills (dribbling, passing, shooting, guarding, conditioning, discipline) and team roles (positions, plays, guarding techniques, bench support), girls will be prepared for competitive basketball at St. Jude.
Girls in grades 3rd-5th are able to play on a developmental team regardless of number of athletes playing.
Girls in grades 6th-8th will tryout for placement on a Varsity team. Junior Varsity teams will be established upon athlete interest.
The fee for each student eligible to play basketball is $100.
Team practices are called by our coaches and will be communicated via email.
