Girls Basketball Quick Facts

Fees

Registration Fee: $350 + tbd
Additional Costs: Additional costs for team shoes and team warm-ups. As well as added costs team-related trips and activities (see below).

Anticipated Levels of Play

The girls basketball program generally offers both JV and varsity teams. This is entirely dependent on the numbers at the start of the season however. The 2021 – 2022 season will feature a varsity team, unless we are pleasantly surprised with the turnout and can form a JV squad.

Practice and Game Schedule

The girls basketball team practices Monday – Saturday from 3:45 p.m. – 5:45 p.m. or 5:45 p.m. – 7:45 p.m. on weekdays and in the morning on some Saturdays. The team generally schedules 18 – 20 regular games each season which are played in the evenings. There are some exceptions to this with some games taking place on a Saturday or possibly at an away venue right after school. Home games usually start at 5:45 p.m. and are played in the gym in the Main building. Away games sometimes involve early dismissals from class as we travel to games.

Transportation

Transportation is not needed for practices as we stay at the school for training. For away games, transportation will be provided by the school, and the expectation is that students will travel together to all away games on the bus/van. Students are not allowed to drive their own vehicles or arrange their own transportation to away games.

Uniform, Gear, and Equipment

The school provides two uniform jerseys and shorts. Players must purchase their own team shoes, socks, warm-ups, and potential travel gear (hoodie and sweats). Additionally, there are several optional team gear items that players may purchase including long sleeve shirts, T-shirts, hoodies, etc. All of the optional gear may be purchased separately by filling out a gear order form prior to the beginning of the season. The typical cost for shoes and gear each year is between $250 – $350.

Retreats and Overnight Activities

During the season, it is common for the girls basketball team to organize several fun team activities including an overnight trip. This might differ from year to year, but a typical season usually involves one overnight team retreat during one of the first weekends of the official season, along with several fun evenings together (e.g., at a bowling alley, eating team meals, or at a teammate’s house hanging out). All of these costs come at the expense of the family. Team meals, bowling, and hotel expenses (for an overnight trip) are all additional expenses that players will get billed for if/when they participate.

Out of Season Activities

The girls basketball team offers out-of-season team trainings in the spring and fall. From time to time, the girls organize optional “open gym” practices that are generally run and promoted on their own. During the summer months (June and July), the team practices regularly and attends various tournaments. Bear Creek promotes and encourages girls to sign up and play basketball out of season through the different select-level and AAU clubs and organizations.
