Evaluation dates

WHAT IS AN Evaluation?

It is a skills test where we have each child do free throws, layups and a dribbling drill that helps us gauge every child's skill level. We use this to help us make our teams as balanced as possible. 

All children must attend one evaluation. If they do not attend one they will be put on a waiting list.
