When does the season start?
Our season runs November through March with tryouts and evaluations taking place in September and October.
I'm not sure if I registered my child(ren), can you check for me?
While you are welcome to email the league office to check this information; it is recommend that you log into your SI Play account and check your purchase history as it will provide a faster response time to getting this information. You will see a "bolded" registration order associated with "Basketball 2017-2018" in your purchase history.
Where are games and practices?
We use schools and facilities between Lansdowne and Brambleton on a nightly basis. The exact location of your child's practice is not pre-determined. It will be based on who their coach is once teams are formed and where they will practice.
I live Lansdowne. Will my practice be at Creightons Corner in Brambleton?
The short answer is maybe. We make every effort to keep the HEAD coach at a school in close proximity to where they live. We do not make the same consideration for all of the other players on their team. Meaning if you are not a head coach and live closer to route 7 you may have a practice that takes you to Brambleton each week and vice versa.
What day are practices and games?
Practices will vary based on the results of the draft and the team your child is selected to. Practices occur on each week night (M-F). Once teams are formed, the practice night for your child typically doesn't change unless there is a school event that prevents them from using the gym that evening. We make every effort to have the elementary grades practice from 6:30-8:00pm and the middle school grades practice from 8:00-9:30pm.
Games are by and large played on Saturdays. Game times and locations will vary week to week. There is an occassional week night game during the season.
I would like to coach with a parent who is my child's best friend. Both of our kids want to play together. Can this happen?
When two parents want to coach together and both parents have a child playing in the age group, we do not allow a head coach to pre-select their assistant coach prior to the draft. If the assistant coach is not also a parent of a player in the age group, they are welcome to assist.
My son is 8 years old. Does he play in the Boys 8 division?
No. All of our age groups are determined by the GRADE of the player. Meaning if they are in 3rd grade, they will play in Boys 3 and so on.
My child is on the waitlist. I am willing to serve as a HEAD coach in my child's age group. Does that mean they can come off the waitlist?
Assuming the need for coaches still exists, YES. However, should your child tryout for and be selected to the middle school team (applies to grades 6th to 8th) - as someone who volunteers and child was subsequently allowed to play ahead of others on the waitlist; you will still be obligated to coach in our house league division.
What is the cost of registration and what does it cover?
Each registered player will recieve a game jersey, 10 game season and at minimum a weekly practice (subject to weather and LCPS related cancellations). Those selected for the middle school travel teams will incur an additional cost after being selected. Registration costs for the 2017-2018 season are $160 plus a $25 fundraising fee until July 31st. After July 31st the registration cost increases to $185 plus the $25 fundraising fee.
