Frequently Asked Questions

1. I heard the boys and girls programs merged. Does this mean Co-ed teams?

  •  Absolutely NOT. We will still have separate teams and leagues for both girls and boys with 3rd and 4th graders in one league and 5th and 6th grade in another.

2. When do practices start?

  • Rec. League practice will begin the 1st week of November and on average rec league teams practice one night per week. Travel teams typically begin the last week of October and typically practice two nights per week.

3. Where are practices held?

  • All Northmont Elementary schools are used for practice. We are currently working with local churches to secure gym space as well.

4. When do games start?

  • Both rec league and travel typically begins the first weekend in December. The season runs through late February, or possibly the first weekend in March. We will not play games over the holiday break.

5. Where are rec league games played?

  • All games are played at Northmont Middle School, Vandalia Rec Center, or in Brookville Ohio.

6. Where are travel league games played?

  • All travel teams are part of Dayton Metro Winter league. Approximately half our games are at home at Northmont Middle School and half on the road throughout the greater Dayton area. The furthest we have typically ever had to travel was Lebanon or Graham for a game or two.

7. When are games played?

  • All rec league games are played on weekends (both Saturdays and possibly some on Sunday afternoons or evenings). Travel games are typically on weekends as well, but a few evening games during the week may be scheduled.

8. If my child does not make a travel team will she still get to play?

  • Everyone will be placed on a team. Those not making our travel program will be assigned to a rec league team.

9. Why does it cost so much?

  • Rising costs for gym rental, equipment, uniforms, insurance, cost for background checks for coaches and volunteers, etc.. are all part of our yearly expenses. Gym rental is by far our largest expense. We strive to keep the program as affordable as possible. We rely heavily on the support of our sponsors, so please thank those local company's who sponsor us. In addition, if you work for a company or know someone willing to sponsor a team, please let us know so we can continue to maintain as low of participation fees as possible. We also accept donations and welcome those who want to provide a “scholarship” by paying for a member of our community to play who otherwise might not be able to afford it.

10. This all sounds great, do you need any help?

  • Help is always needed and appreciated. Coaches, assistant coaches, team moms, volunteers to help out on game day, etc. are all needed. Even if you know little about the game of basketball, we are happy to make sure you are paired up with a coach who can not only teach your child, but help you learn as well.

11. What are you doing for a fundraiser this year?

  • After evaluating the fundraiser and comments from you concerning the fundraiser from last year we have decided to completely do away with ANY fundraiser this year. We will be accepting Sponsorships but there will not be a mandatory fund raiser this year.
