Youth Basketball 2016
The Steven L. Bombard Developmental Basketball Program for Boys and Girls in Grades 3 - 8.

Program will develop game skills, teamwork, sportsmanship and respect for players, coaches and referees.  Practicing of skills will be conducted on weeknights and develop into games accordingly on Saturdays.  Teams will play games against each other and referees will be used.  Teams are formed randomly based on siblings,  parent coaches and years of playing.  We will try to honor neighborhood carpool requests and cannot guarantee all requests, as making balanced teams is our first priority.
