Last season we had a successful all girls team participate in the YMCA basketball league. We were excited for them and hope to continue to have an all girls 3/4th grade team for the summer.
Blaze Basketball is a Boys, Girls and Co-ed Club. We have teams at the 1/2nd, 3/4th, 5/6th and 7/8/9th grade level. 3rd thru 9th graders will be grouped with those who share their skill level. Competitive teams will be formed and will play in competitive leagues and tournaments here in town and for travel. Non-competitive teams will be place in either YMCA or USA youth sports.
