Gallup Hill is about to begin another season of Upward Sports and we are excited to get started! Read on to find out what's new and different this season!
Gallup Hill's basketball league is for boys and girls in grades K-6. Each child is evaluated on evaluation day in the fall, and teams are divided up based on those evaluations. This helps us ensure that the teams are balanced. Each team is assigned a coach and practices on an assigned day and time during the week. All games are played on Saturdays in the church gym. For those kids in 6th grade, games and practices will not conflict with LMS games and practices.
Please note that this year we are capping the league at 130 kids. Each division will have a maximum of four teams with 8 players each.
Divisions are organized as follows:
Mighty Mights - KG
Division 1 - 1st/2nd grade
Division 2 - 3rd/4th grade
Division 3 - 5th/6th grade
The overall schedule that the league uses is as follows:
September - League season registration opens
November - Evaluations are held and teams are assembled
December - Practices begin
January/February - Games begin and practices continue
