2nd Grade Training League

St. Joseph offers a volunteer-based, 8 week instructional Training League (weekly 1 hour sessions in January and February) that will teach fundamental skill, such as dribbling, passing and shooting.  The Training League also briefly explains many basic basketball rules.  All players must provide their own "youth sized" basketball and will be instructed to wear a specific color t-shirt to all 8 sessions.  The St. Joseph Training League program relies heavily upon 6-8 parents volunteering for all 8 weekly sessions.  Regardless whether you want to coach in future years or not, please volunteer and join the FUN! 

The training league registration cost is $50 per player.

On-line registration for the 2nd Grade Training League will open in late August and continue through mid-November.
