OAK KNOLL BASKETBALL - 3RD, 4TH & 5TH GRADE GIRLS AND BOYS (2023-24)

Organized by the Oak Knoll After School Sports Program, Winter Basketball is a recreational league for girls and boys in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade competing against other area schools. No previous experience is necessary. The girls will learn the basic skills of the game in a fun and encouraging environment on teams coached by parent volunteers. The season runs from mid-November to early March.
