Ages as of December 31. Teams are formed based on the school district in which the child lives and/or attends school. Leagues for 5/6 yr olds and 7/8 yr olds are co-ed. Practice is determined by the coach, but most teams practice in the teams school district. Once basketball teams are formed, coaches will meet the week prior to Thanksgiving to receive rosters/equipment and choose practice times. Teams are allowed to begin practices the week after Thanksgiving. Teams will practice once per week until Winter Break and then games will begin (and practices will resume) in January. The season is approximately eight to ten weeks long (actual length depends on the number of teams and inclement weather during the season). Games for 5/6 yr olds are played mainly at Lee M. Waid with the possibility of a few games at BFMS East Hall Gym. The 7/8 yr old league plays mainly at BFMS East Hall with the possibility of games at Lee M. Waid.
