PS 58’s intramural Basketball League is open to all 3rd, 4th and 5th grade girls and boys, and enrollment will begin at 8AM on Thursday, October 11th.
–An announcement regarding enrollment for the 1st & 2nd Grade Basketball Class (held on Saturdays beginning in January) will be sent out next week–
The purpose of the basketball program is to teach teamwork and good sportsmanship while introducing kids of all skill levels to the rules and strategies of the game. There are two leagues: one for 3rd graders and another for 4th & 5th graders. All teams are coached by parent volunteers, and all games have referees, scorekeepers and timekeepers. Kids get team uniforms and are awarded medals at the end of the season. It’s competitive, exciting, educational and confidence building – and a ton of fun for players, coaches and parents!
Pre-season assessments and scrimmages will be held in November, and the official season runs from December through April. An optional “Skills and Drills” clinic will also be offered on Saturdays, starting in January.
Please note that you will need to commit to both the game day and one of the available practice sessions listed on the enrollment web page. Please also note that the basketball program is not a drop-off activity, so either a parent or designated guardian must be present during all practices and games.

Enrollment is on a first-come, first-served basis, and slots fill up quickly.
Hope to see you on the court!
