House League Playoffs

As our regular season draws to an end, please be prepared for the upcoming playoffs for Grades 3 and up.  This year, we will be hosting a single elimination tournament in Grade 3 and a double elimination tournaments for Grades 4 and up.  While we are still working out the exact times/locations, the current playoff block for the different grades is posted at the end of this article. Playoffs start the weekend of February 24 and 25 for all grades except high school boys.

Use Tourney Time For Up-to-Date Scheduling for the Playoffs

The playoffs start this weekend for Boys Grades 9/10 and Boys Grade 11/12.  Instead of posting the schedule here, we are going to try using a website and app called Tourney Machine where you will be able to check on the status of games.  So far, we have only loaded Boys 9/10 and Boys 11/12 but we will be setting up the other grade levels once final standings from league play are completed this weekend.  Here are your options to see the brackets:

1) Website - go to this link: 

https://www.tourneymachine.com/R41396

2) Smartphone App - Download the Tourney Machine app.  Then search Great Falls Hoops House Tournament. You do NOT need to Purchase the $1.99 Tourney Pass;that just allows you to avoid advertisements.

Spring 2018 Clinics


Great Falls Basketball is pleased to announce that registration is NOW OPEN for spring clinics and summer camps.  Don’t delay signing up as sessions are intentionally kept small to allow for more individualized attention and will fill up fast.  Clinics will once again be led by former European professional players, Jessilyn Conicelli and Jeff Benton.

So many parents ask how to work on shooting form and we have a solution – join our shooting clinics and get professional shot corrections and repetitions. This program is worth the investment if you want your child to become a more proficient shooter.
Need work on passing, ball handling, quick release scoring, defense or rebounding?  Our Skills and Drills clinics will focus on teaching the correct fundamentals of basketball.  Each week new skills will be taught then tested in real game situations.
Back by popular demand is Friday Night Lights but sign up quickly as this fills up fast!  Players are divided up each week into competitive teams and run full court games with referees, pinnies and clock provided!
Need an affordable and fun camp to keep the kids busy this summer while having fun and working on their court skills? We have two weeks of full time camps that will incorporate all the kids favorite games while working on specific fundamentals of the sport.  Your child will have so much fun they may not even realize how much their game is improving!
