Boys 4th Grade Developmental Program

The Great Falls Select Basketball program begins in the 5th grade - until the 5th grade, players participate in House League. However, last year we ran a pilot program for 4th grade boys who wanted a higher level of training and competition, and the program was very successful. This year we will be offering the program again.

Who is eligible? Boys in the 4th grade who would be eligible to participate in the 5th Grade Great Falls Select Program next year.  Like the Select Program, the Developmental program is for players (and parents) willing to make a higher level of commitment than House League requires.

What is the program's objective? The primary objective of the program is to act as a "bridge" between House League and Select basketball. Players in the 5th grade Select program will be competing against players and teams from across the County who have been playing at a high level of competition since 3rd grade, so our local players typically have some catching up to do.  

How does the program work? Players in the Developmental program sign up for and participate in Great Falls Basketball 4th Grade House League as their primary basketball commitment for the 2014-2015 season. However, as members of the Developmental Program, they would participate in one additional practice per week, and would have the opportunity to participate in games and tournaments in the VA/DC/MD area. In the case of schedule conflicts between House League and the Developmental Program, players will be required to attend the House League event. However, over the course of the season, every player will have had the opportunity to build their skills and test them against stronger players and teams.

Is there a tryout? Maybe. We will be scheduling Open Gyms in September as a means of gauging interest and demand. If more players want to participate than we can put on one team, we may have to have a tryout in order to Select the most capable players.

Who do I contact for more information? The Boys 4th Grade Developmental Program will be coached by Bruce Carton. Contact Bruce at bcarton@securitiesdocket.com.
