Formed in 2016, the Urbandale Club Basketball Program is open to boys and girls in grades 3rd – 8th. Following the philosophy of the boys and girls high school programs, Club Basketball focuses on fundamental basketball skill development while promoting sportsmanship and work ethic.
A minimum of 1 team will be offered at each grade level (3rd – 8th) for both boys and girls living in Urbandale or attending the Urbandale Community School District. Each roster will have 8-10 players. Teams will be formed based on tryout performance, however, when there are multiple teams for a grade, teams will be blended together for practice. We will not designate an A/B/C team, but instead will handle each tournament based on student availability and competition level. The talent level will be distributed on a week to week basis depending on the upcoming tournament existing teams will not be maintained.
Teams will be provided 1-2 practices per week at one of the district’s gymnasiums after all school activities have concluded, typically between 6:00pm – 9:00pm. Urbandale Club Basketball will make every effort to schedule teams of the same grade level together. This is done to allow Urbandale High School coaches to attend and assist with practices in an efficient manner. When possible, practices will be scheduled on a consistent basis through the community education office and coaches are expected to stick to the schedule provided to them.
While equal playing time is not the objective, each player will have an opportunity to play in each game. Playing time will be at the coach’s discretion and is based on practice and game performance, attitude, game situation and skill.
