Junior Basketball Program (3rd-6th Graders)


The 202 1 Junior Basketball Program is for boys & girls  in third through sixth grades. Games and practices will begin January 2021. The fee for the 7 week program is $135 and includes a team t-shirt. More information to come in our Fall/Winter RecGuide in August.

Junior Basketball Program General Information

Team Formation

We need a minimum of 7 players to form a junior basketball team; 8-10 players per team is best. Sometimes it is necessary to combine 2 teams to form one larger team with 7-10 players. If this is necessary for your child's team, we will contact you by phone or email and explain your options. After the signup deadline, children on waiting lists will have the option of staying on the waiting list or they can move to another team that has openings. If a team has too many drops or has late drops, it may be cancelled. We will try our best to place all children that want to play.

First Practice

Your child's coach will contact you prior to the first practice. In most cases, coaches will not contact parents until after their coaches meeting held the first week of January, no later than the Sunday before practices are scheduled to begin. The coach will tell you the time and reconfirm the location of your child's practices.

Practice Times

Your child’s practice location and days are chosen by you. You sign your child up for a specific school (or park) practice location and specific days of practice, M/W or T/Th. Coaches try to arrange practice times as close to the end of school as possible. The optimal start times for 3/4 and 5/6 grade teams is 3:15 p.m. or 3:30 p.m. Coaches are not allowed on school grounds prior to the last release time (3:15 pm for M, T, Th, F and 1:30 pm on W).  Although the elementary school children are released from school at 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, not all coaches will be able to start practice that early. Please be aware that Wednesday practices may start early but may also not start until 4:00 p.m. or later. Most practices for elementary teams are from 1 to 1 ½ hours.

Games
All games are played on Saturdays.

3/4 & boys and 3/4 grades girls will play in the Community (North) Gym at the High School while 5/6 grade boys and 5/6 grade girls will play in the Old (South) Gym or the Community (North) Gym at the High School.  Please be aware that games may conflict with other activities (ie., AAU basketball, soccer, baseball, club activities). If your child will not be able to attend games on a regular basis on Saturdays, please reconsider taking part in this program. When a player consistently misses practices or games it negatively impacts his/her team.

A schedule for the games played will be available the first week of the program. This schedule will be distributed at practices and posted on this webpage. Your child will receive his/her team shirt at the first practice.

Program Philosophy

No individual statistics or team standings are kept. Everyone plays every game. Fundamental skills, sportsmanship and fun are emphasized. We want the participants to play hard, play fair and feel good about their effort. As a parent, your support of this philosophy will be appreciated. We are always looking for good coaches so if your schedule allows you the opportunity to coach, please do not hesitate to apply to coach your son or daughter’s team.

Basketball Coaches Needed

We are seeking positive, committed, friendly and energetic role models to coach the City of Davis Junior Basketball Program (Boys and Girls Grade 3-6). For parents and family members of players, coaching is a great way to spend more time with your child while they enjoy a great sport. Anyone passionate about basketball is encouraged to volunteer their time and help make this popular program successful. Parents selected as the head coach will have their child's Junior Basketball registration fee waived. All coaches will be required to pass a background check and attend a training session. For more information, please contact Parks and Community Services at (530)757-5626.

Teen Open Gym

Teen Open Gym is a long time program held in the Community Gym on the Davis Senior High School campus on Saturday evenings from 4:00-8:00 p.m.  and Sunday afternoons from 1:30-3:30 p.m.  This is a great opportunity for teens, grades 9-12, to drop in on a game of badminton or basketball.  Participants are encouraged to bring their own equipment, but the program does have some equipment available for daily use. There is a $2.00 drop-in fee to participate.
