Urbandale Club Basketball

PHILOSPHY
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.
 
PARTICIPATION
The purpose of the program is to provide Urbandale students the opportunity to play together in a competitive format.
 
GAMEPLAY
Urbandale Club Basketball teams will participate in local leagues for the first half of the season and 5-7 local / non-local tournaments for the second half of the season.  Urbandale Club Basketball players will compete against competitive teams from surrounding communities and, in some instances, around the state. Tournaments are selected by individual team coaches with assistance provided by Urbandale Club Basketball staff.
  • Local League Play:  October – December
  • Tournament Play:   December - March
TEAM FORMAT & ELIGIBILITY
If numbers permit, 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 for team in 3rd - 5th grade, 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.  The 6th grade team will be determined after the tryout period to see if they should use a blended format or A/B/C format based on numbers and skill level.  The 7th and 8th grade teams will use a A/B/C format but will still practice on the same nights and in the same gym.  Pre-existing teams will not be maintained.

PRACTICE

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.
 
PLAYING TIME
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.
