Girls BasketballGirls basketball seasons will enter a new era as well as an adjusted time frame in 2020! Season will begin earlier and end earlier to ease the congestion of gym usage during winter and also to allow a new involvement from our county schools coaching staffs and players in the administration of Saturday skills clinics prior to their playing seasons. Participants will attend their future high school for clinics administered by the high school coaching staffs and players as well as Recreation coaches on four Saturday mornings within their season. We are still working out the details of these positive changes that will drastically improve our basketball programs and will advertise the ‘exact’ schedule as soon as possible. We will end the season with our basketball bash the first weekend of October.
