Carmel Select Basketball
Challenge Basketball League
Carmel Select basketball is a four-team challenge league for 6th and 7th grade boys (and advanced 5th graders) looking to improve their skills in preparation for middle school basketball. Through excellent leadership, the boys will be challenged in a fast paced academy style practice routine while competing in 9+ weekend games with a season ending tournament. Select encourages the boys to compete, improve, and excel all while displaying Godly character. Because of the nature of the challenge league format, there will be tryouts and cuts.
Before games start (late November), practices will be held Saturday mornings and Thursday nights. Once the season starts, practices continue on Thursdays only with games on Saturday afternoon/evenings. Practices will begin November 2 and last game will be late February. We will have a nine game season with an invitational tournament and season ending tournament/celebration. Games and practices will likely rotate in area gyms – Carmel ROC, Providence High School, Bible Baptist – trying to keep all activities as close to the area as possible.
Important note: Tryouts are required to be eligible. Players attend at least 1 of 3 tryout dates, and they MUST be registered to tryout. (Refunds will be given if your son does not make the team). Tryouts are for 6th and 7th graders primarily. Advanced 5th graders are welcome and encouraged to try out as well.
