A special league designed just for your elementary players! This 6 game experience will feature one practice a week, and one game on Saturdays. No score or standings are kept in 4th grade (score will be kept in 5th grade) to facilitate a fun, non-competitive environment that focuses on basketball as a tool to promote health, confidence, teamwork, leadership, integrity, and more! Not only will each team focus on basketball fundamentals and technique, but they will also introduce a new Word of the Week to include life skills that youth sports provide. Our goal is to create better athletes, but more importantly, better people.
Each team will have one practice a week, and one game a week on Saturdays. General youth sports jerseys are required and can be purchased at the CARD office for $15. Each team will have a 6 game regular season guarantee.
Registration is available in all leagues based on the number of staff/volunteers available and facility space. Registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis.

BUDDY REQUESTS: One buddy request can be made during the registration process. Coach and practice requests will not be accepted. Please read the buddy request process closely when registering to ensure it is valid.
TEAM FORMATION: Teams will be loosely based on grade and where players attend school. Genders will be separate. Grades may be combined if there is not enough players to sustain a league. All team formation is at the discretion of CARD staff. If CARD staff feels it is necessary to form teams, a "skills evaluation" may be held to evaluate each player's skill before finalizing teams.
