Girls Basketball

‘Creek girls fall basketball league has openings

BEAVERCREEK — The deadline to register for the 16th annual Beavercreek girls high school Fall League has been extended to Aug. 24.

The games will be played on Sunday afternoons starting Sept. 13 and ending Oct. 18. All teams will play a total of seven games on five Sundays with a game TBA (to accommodate the College exposure tournaments, date subject to change).

The league will consist of 12 high school teams (9th through 12th grade). There will be 8-10 girls per team, keeping in mind that only two players from each school may play on the same team (OHSAA rule). Space is limited to 120 players and restricted based on OHSAA rules. The talent level will be balanced as much as possible across all teams and a coach will be supplied for each team.

Please note, this is not a teaching environment, but rather a place for young ladies who have played competitive basketball to get started again for the fall. FUN, sportsmanship, fundamentals, 100% effort, and balanced playing time, while still being competitive, will be the goal of this league.

All participants will be required to conduct themselves in an appropriate manner and under the rules of the league. This is a high school league only. Anyone submitting a falsified registration will be dismissed from the league with no refund and will not be permitted to play in subsequent years. The Beavercreek Athletic Boosters reserves the right to refuse any registration.

COST: $75 per player and includes a numbered jersey. Please make checks payable to: Beavercreek Athletic Boosters.

The full registration form can be downloaded from: http://beavercreekathletics.com/…/beavercreek-girls-basket…/ or http://www.beavercreekstars.com/node/9347
