Question: Why do you do Evaluations?
Answer: Pete Davis along with the coaches evaluate the players so that each player can be placed on teams based on their age, basketball skill level and physical development. It allows all teams at the different age groups to play on teams that will compete with fairness and parity during the season.
Question: What happens at Evaluations?
Answer: 5 basketball stations are set up in the gym to evaluate players skill level…dribbling/ball handling, defense/rebounding, shooting, fitness, and team play.
Question: Do I need to arrive before the evaluation time allocated for my child's age? How long will the evaluation be?
Answer: Parents and players should arrive 30 minutes before their age groups evaluation time to enable our staff to register your player, assign a number and coach for the one-hour evaluation session.
Question: My child hasn’t participated in a basketball league before but would like to try one. Will this league be a good fit?
Answer: The Alpert JCC/Pete Davis Youth Basketball League is the perfect venue to teach young players who have never played organized basketball or team sports an opportunity to learn the fundamental of basketball, teamwork, and sportsmanship. We teach proper basketball skills for every age group which, creates a fun competitive environment, and challenges each child to be the best they can be.
Question: Can my child play on the same team as his or her friend and/or sibling?
