ACADEMY BASKETBALL PROGRAM
We offer one or two sessions a week on separate days. The first session is devoted to skills development. The players rotate through several stations that each focus on a specific basketball skill. The second session is dedicated to team concepts.
ALL boys and girls may join if they are entering grades k-12. Any player may join at any time during the year. The current monthly fee is $55.00 for K-6th grade and $95.00 for 7th-11th grade is due at their FIRST PRACTICE or the FIRST GAME that they play each month. The monthly billing cycle ends on the last day of each month. Payments received after that date will have a 25.00 late fee added. The monthly PROGRAM FEE of 55.00 or $95.00 is DUE EVEN IF PLAYERS ATTEND GAMES ONLY and do not come to practices. The coaches still need to be paid. Rent still needs to be paid, insurance still needs to be paid, etc. LEAGUE FEES, currently 45.00 per league, are SEPARATE and are NOT used to pay the coaches. Team participation is optional, but over 95% of our members are on teams. New team members must go to JOHNNY MACS to get a game jersey and game shorts.
Again, we are proud to have welcomed players not only from Springfield, but also Branson, Marshfield, Ash Grove, Billings, Mount Vernon, Lebanon, Aurora, Nixa, Sparta, Seymour, Ozark, Republic, Monett, Springfield, and Arkansas. We are also excited to have Home School players. All players are welcome to join.
Sports aren't just an important way to stay fit and trim. Movement is also fun and healthy, you can meet people and make new friendships. We also believe that many life lessons can be learned by appropriate participation in athletics.
