3rd and 4th Grade – Winter 2018

Saturday Morning Basketball is coming soon! Mackinaw City will once again be competing against all other league teams in an elementary basketball program. Elementary basketball will still take place for 6 weeks and will still take place on Saturdays, as well as some after school practices on Fridays. Attendance at these practices is necessary in order to play in the games. Instruction on fundamentals will be coached by Coach Kellie Downing. The last 4 Saturday’s will involve competition against other schools. By signing up for SATURDAY MORNING BASKETBALL, we are asking for a commitment of all 6 weeks if possible. You will be responsible for transportation and supervision of your child at all away games (only one this year). If you do not feel that you will be able to make it to away games, we will find a way to get all players to games!  No uniforms are necessary, your child will just be asked to wear a blue or white shirt and will be notified ahead of time. If they still have their shirt from last year, please have your child wear that to games. There will still be an opportunity to play at halftime of Varsity games as well.
