Frequently Asked Questions

I registered. What now?

Once the registration period is complete we begin gathering coaches and building rosters and practice schedules. We typically hold a coaches meeting 1-2 weeks prior to the season start date. You will be contacted by your head coach after this meeting. This is when you will receive your team’s practice times.

 

My player has no experience in this sport. Should I still sign him/her up?

Our leagues and clinics are open to players of all abilities. All coaches are trained to coach players of all skill sets. Every player is to receive equal playing time regardless of skill level.

 

Do I qualify for a discount?

We offer sliding scale discounts up to 40% for families who qualify. This discount requires proof of income at time of registration with either a W-2 or recent paystub. Please note that this discount is not available for online registration.

 

When are practices?

In order to fairly distribute practice times, the only time constraint that can be taken into consideration is the head coach’s availability. Unfortunately we cannot take specific practice time requests from each player. Typically each team will practice twice per week; once during the weekday in the afternoon or evening and once on Saturdays in the morning or early afternoon.

 

When are games?

Games typically start after 2-3 weeks of practices. A game schedule is released 1-2 weeks prior to games beginning. Game times will differ from practice times, but will typically follow the same pattern (once during the week and once on the weekend).

 

My player wants to play with his/her friends. Is this possible?

Each player is allowed one player request with the exception of the 3rd-8th grade basketball leagues. We do our best to meet these requests but they are not guaranteed.

 

I want my player to be on a specific coach’s team. Is this possible?

Each player is allowed one coach request with the exception of the 3rd-8th grade basketball leagues. We do our best to meet these requests but they are not guaranteed.

 

Are these programs co-ed?

All leagues and clinics are co-ed with the exception of our Girls’ Basketball Clinic.

 

Will my family have to travel for games?

All practices and games are held in Petaluma.

 

Do I need to buy a uniform?

Jerseys are included in your registration fee. Shorts are not included and players are free to wear whatever they like.

 

What do I have to do to be a coach?

We are always in need of coaches! Coaches need to fill out the appropriate forms prior to the season (preferably at the time of player registration). All coaches will need to attend a pre-season coaches meeting and training and complete a Livescan fingerprint background check. As a head coach, we can work with you to find the best possible practice time that works with your schedule and always do our best to provide you with an assistant coach.
