12th Annual Mini-League for 7th and 8th Grade Boys Starting 11/13

The Bay Area Warriors is again hosting a Sunday Mini-League for 7th and 8th Grade Boys to help get them ready for upcoming Scholastic basketball season.  The Mini-League will just go for three Sundays (11/23, 11/20 and 11/27) in the University High School Gym located at 3185 Washington Street, SF and typically starts at 10 am and is done by 1 pm.   Players typically sign-up as individuals but we can take a group from the same school as a team.  

Sunday 11/13 - all the players will arrive at 10 am.  We will divide them into teams, coach them in tactics of "how to play" together, and play scrimmages.  We will be done by 12:30.

Sunday 11/20 - each team will have assigned game time(s) at roughly 10, 11 or 12.  Parents are welcome to watch

Sunday 11/27 - We will hold a bracket play-off starting at 10 am to determine a League Champion.  Parents are welcome to watch

The Bay Area Warriors is 501 (c) 3 a non-profit and we ask for a $30 voluntary donation to cover our costs for a referee, etc.  If your son can only make 1 or 2 days that is ok and we pro-rate the donation ($10 per day).

This is the 12th year we have hosted this League and it generally attracts a lot of very strong players (see alumni list below), many of whom have gone on to star in HS and College.  The games are typically very competitive and often high scoring.  Our goal is for the players to have fun and get some game experience to help get them ready for their school season.

Again we have the players sign-up as individuals but we encourage you to see if any of your son's school teammates want to join them.  We put players from the same schools on the same teams so they can get experience playing together.

If you want a flier contact coachrandal@yahoo.com.  If you want to sign-up your son, please fill out the registration page and return it to me via email (scanned copy) or mail (155 San Pablo Ave, SF 94127).  Your son can bring the donation with them on the first day.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me:
