Winter Basketball League

The goal of the SRCS Winter Basketball League is to teach the basic fundamental skills of basketball while reinforcing the importance of teamwork, Christian values, and good sportsmanship, the same philosophy we promote at Saint Raphael. While learning the game of basketball, our Guardians will also be working together, playing as a team, exercising, and MOST IMPORTANTLY: Having fun!  All levels of experience are welcomed to participate.

League Structure: The Basketball League is a six week program and all practices and games will take place in Ignatius Hall.  The league will have four divisions based on grade: k-1st, 2nd-3rd, 4th-5th, 6th-7th.  This is a co-ed basketball league for all divisions. Each division will have four teams, with 10 players on each team. Teams will meet for a 30 minute instructional practice, immediately followed by a full game.  

Game Structure:  Games will consist of four 8 minute quarters with a running clock.  Player substitutions will be rotated in every 4 minutes, allowing every player equal playing time.  The games will be officiated by a referee.

League Schedule: The league will play on five consecutive Saturdays:

January 7th, January 14th, January 21st, January 28th, February 4th

Division Times:

K-1st: 8:00-9:30

2nd-3rd: 9:30-11:00
