Basketball is offered to all 5-8 grade students with the possibility of 4th graders joining the team, as team size allows. The season runs from late October to mid-February. Practices are held Monday-Thursday nights after school. Games are Friday nights with an occasional Saturday game. Younger students typically play on the B-team level and older students on the A-team. Home games are held at Heritage Lutheran Church gym (Apple Valley). Practices are held after school in Good Shepherd’s gym. The B-team level goes to one season-ending tournament. The A-team level plays in several tournaments. More information about basketball and other sports can be found in our Sports Handbook. A schedule of games and practices will be given out at our preseason basketball meeting and will be posted for all to download or print.
Cheer-leading coincides with the basketball season and is offered to girls in grades 5-8, with the possibility of 4th graders joining the team, as team size allows. Practices are once a week after school. Cheerleaders support scheduled, regular season basketball games.
