The league will be five Saturday mornings starting late January and finishing end of February at Eisenhower Elementary. Each session will be approximately sixty to seventy-five minutes (depending on enrollment). The first 30 minutes will be skill work followed by approximately 30 minutes of structured 3 on 3 games. The emphasis of the league is on building skills and having fun! There will be no scoreboards or standings and the coaches will help referee and run the games. For example, we may use "all-time coach passers" to help facilitate the game flow. Buddy requests will try to be honored but we will likely be mixing up teams week to week and maybe even game to game, depending upon interest.
