Evaluations:
Evaluations are usually held during the month of October for all 7U - 18U players. Those that are playing in the DBL (Developmental Basketball League) will not participate in the evaluations.

Practices

Practice begins in late October for the 7U - 10U while the 12U - 18U will begin in late October or early November.

Practices will be held throughout the week with the exception of Wednesday and Sunday.

Depending on gym availability will depend on the times of the practices. If playing at the middle schools or high schools, times will vary as we will work around the school basketball games/activities throughout the season.

Before the game season begins, each team should have at least 2 practices each week. Coaches will have the opportunity to schedule additional practices if court time is available.

All practices are held at Dublin Park and/or with the Madison City Schools.

Developmental League (5 & 6 Year Olds) will begin in January and will end close the spring break. Detailed schedule will be sent to the players once we determine the number of teams in each league.

Regular Season Games

Games are played throughout the week with the exception of Wednesdays and Sundays from November - February.

All games are played in the Madison area at Dublin Park or at the Madison City Schools.

7U-10U - once the game season begins, each team will have at least 2 activities per week. This may be 1 practice, 1 game or 2 games.

12U-18U - Teams may be scheduled 2 -3 games per week due to the short time frame of the season for these older age groups. Coaches will have an opportunity to schedule additional practices during the week as well.

DBL - games will be held in late February early March.

Since we are very dependent on the school gymnasiums, game times will vary as we will work around the school activities throughout the season.

Schedules, Standings, Scores and Tournament Brackets will be posted during each season on the City of Madison website.

Tournament Play

Tournament play for our league will be towards the end of January/first of February. At this time, it all depends on the number of teams and the number of hours we have access to our school gymnasiums.
