Tuesday or Thursday evenings with game times of 5:00, 5:30, 6:00, 6:30, or 7:00 (with a built-in 15 minute practice prior to games).  We will work to avoid 7:00 games whenever possible and will adjust schedules to ensure no team has a majority early or late games.

Games consist of four 8-minute quarters.

Games will be held at:

Eagle School of the Arts

Eagle Hills

Galileo STEM

Eagle Middle 


Practices will be held Tuesday or Thursday evenings.  Practices are established through Eagle Parks and Recreation and based on feedback from volunteer coaches.  In the two weeks prior to games beginning teams will have one 1 hour practice per week.  Given our current facility space teams should plan on utilizing a half-court for practice and sharing the gym with another team. Our goal is to expand this in future seasons.  

Once games begin teams will be given 15 minutes prior to game time to practice and prepare for the game.  Practices and games will be held on a single evening.   

Team Formation:

Teams are formed based on coach request, teammate request and/or the school your child attends. If you so choose you may select the school closest to your home for placement.


Uniform Kits consist of a reversible jersey and shorts.  Kits are $20 and included in registration.  Once purchased uniforms can be used in future seasons.    


Coaches who complete the background check process and who complete orientation receive a $20 rebate on their child's registration.  

All coaches are provided resources and tools to be successful.  Our goal is to make you great and support you throughout your time with us.

This league can ONLY run with parent volunteers!
