LRE FALL BALL LEAGUE
Lakes Region Elite is excited to announce the start of a new basketball league taking place this fall. "Fall Ball" will offer middle school players from all over the Lakes Region the opportunity to fine-tune their skills prior to the start of their school season. There will be both a boys and girls league.
The season will begin in November with two preseason clinics, followed by 2 games each week. Games will be held on Weekday nights, 5:30pm and 7pm, and Saturday mornings. All games will be held at the Gilford Youth Center.
There will be both a boys league and girls league. Players must currently be in Middle School.
Cost: $185.00 per player.
All players will receive a game shirt. Full payment will be due on first preseason clinic night.
There is no fee to tryout for the league
Due to the limited time/space that we have, there will be limited teams in both leagues. Depending on the # of registrations, there may be players who do not make the league.
There will be a tryout/evaluation night for new players on Wednesday, November 4th (5:30 Boys, 7:00pm Girls). It is free to tryout. Players who played in the 2020 LRE Summer League/Lakers program do not need to attend tryouts.
Players who make the league will be assigned to team. The teams will be put together with the goal of making them as competitively equal as possible. Any siblings who play in the league will be assigned to the same team. Each team will have a designated coach to help with in-game decisions/playing time.
