PROGRAM FOCUS

The focus of the Kindergarten House program is on learning the proper techniques of basketball (dribbling, passing and shooting) and having fun; not on games. During each session, the basics of basketball will be taught and explained. Some scrimmages may be run at your coach’s discretion.

TEAMS

Once registration is closed, teams will be formed.  Typically, there are 8-10 players on a team, although at times there may be a need to have more.

In forming the team, the EBA will honor one (1) mutual play-with request per player. Only mutual (both players request each other) play-in requests can be honored. Multiple play-with requests or “daisy chain” requests cannot be honored.

Once all play-with requests are satisfied, teams are formed by taking into consideration where the child attends school.   Please note, this does not mean that every player on every team will be from the same school, but we will make every effort to ensure multiple kids from the same school are on a given team.

Late registrations are added to teams to round out rosters.  There is no mutual play-with request for late registrars.

COACHES

The Kindergarten League coaches are parent volunteers. Ideally each team will have two coaches, a head coach and an assistant coach. Parent coaches will be coaching their child’s team. Please consider volunteering your time and talents  as a head or assistant coach. Click HERE to register as a coach.

Per Edina Parks & Recreation Department rules, all coaches are required go through a background check and complete an online video regarding concussion management.

SEASON

The season will begin in late November/early December and run through late February/early March.

PRACTICES

Practices will be scheduled throughout the season on Friday evenings.

GAMES

There are no official games in Kindergarten, but coaches can scrimmage against the other team present at practice during the 2nd half of practice time.  Click HERE for game rules.

UNIFORMS/BASKETBALL

Each player will receive a basketball jersey. Players will be given a Kindergarten appropriate basketball (26.5 inches). The kids are expected to bring their basketball to practices.

PARENT RESPONSIBILITY

While your child is practicing/playing, you are responsible for the actions of your other children. Do not let them freely roam the schools. They should be with you at all times.
