Program Description:

Fall ball focuses on:

  • Offensive & defensive playbook install
  • Game strategy
  • Competitive play

Our practices are designed to teach young athletes the rules, reads, play-calls, and strategies necessary for competitive play.

Our tournament gamedays are all about getting our young athletes lots of real game experience against top teams in that area. Most young athletes struggle to showcase their skills on the court when it matters in a competitive game. The only way to gain the experience and confidence necessary to perform at the highest level is to get a lot of real game reps against other competitive teams. That is what Fall ball is all about. Develop your skills, confidence, and passion for basketball through competitive play. It may be rough at first, but we will continue to work through our nerves, inexperience, and deficiencies on the court as we develop as individuals and a team. Win or lose, we focus on teaching life skills through basketball including: teamwork, sportsmanship, effort, integrity, respect, leadership, self-esteem and strategy.

"School is a series of lessons that uses tests to see what you learned along the way. Basketball is a series of tests that teaches you lessons along the way."

We do not focus on individual skill development in Fall Ball (i.e. dribbling, passing, shooting, etc.). If you are looking for individual skill development, sign-up for one of our skill clinics, shooting clinics and/or holiday camps.

Division/Team Placement:

We are taking registration all together (boys & girls ages 10-17). We will break players into divisions/teams based on our final club roster. This may involve moving players up a division, or combining boys & girls teams to make them co-ed. If we cannot find a division for your child, you have 2 options:

  • Receive a refund for $195, plus a $5 credit which can be used for a future season (sorry but we cannot refund processing fees as we never received that money)
  • Receive a partial refund of $100. With this, your child can still participate in the Friday practices. They just will not play on Sundays.

*These options are only for if we can't find a team/division for your child. See our refund policy below for other refund scenarios.

TeamSnap Invite

We will be sending everyone a TeamSnap invite 1-week prior to the program's start date.  Please accept the invitation and download the TeamSnap App on your phone if you haven’t done so already. We are going to be using TeamSnap this session to:

  • Communicate with the parents: You will be receiving automated e-mail reminders from TeamSnap as well as e-mails from the club president/head coach - Billy Goldstein. We also recommend parents use the TeamSnap chat tool to communicate with coaches and other parents.
  • Schedule Calendar: You can see all the upcoming practices on the team schedule tab. If I make any changes to the schedule (i.e. practice gets moved to a different field or cancelled), you will be notified. 
  • Availability: The availability tool is the best way to let the coaches know if your child will be attending or not. Just click the Schedule Tab, click on the date of the practice, and select Going, Maybe or No. 

If you already have TeamSnap, and this is not the email you used to register through TeamSnap, please send me the correct email. This way you don’t need to create a whole new profile.

If you don't receive the TeamSnap invite 1-week prior to the start date, please check your SPAM folder. Still don't see anything, e-mail your Camp Director (see contact information below)

Parent Volunteer Team:

Check-out Procedures:

All participants are currently listed as CHILD CHECKOUT, meaning they can check out with their coach after practice and go meet their parents in the parking lot, get a ride home from a friend/teammate etc. If you would like to change your child to PARENT CHECKOUT, please e-mail club president, Billy Goldstein., As a parent checkout, players will stay in the gym with the coach until a parent, or authorized guardian, physically checks them out with the coach in the gym.

Club Culture:

Our club culture is the MEAL plan.

  • Make Mistakes
  • Effort
  • Accountability
  • Learning

In order to play for The Divide Grizzlies, everyone must agree to our MEAL Plan Club Culture. A healthy Meal Plan can give an individual the nourishment it needs to grow and development. Our MEAL Plan Culture does the same for our Club. You are going to make mistakes and that is okay because you are always going to give maximum effort, take accountability for your actions on and off the court, and learn from your mistakes. That is how you will grow as a player. That is how we will grow as a club.

Team Life Skills:

The Life Skills that we teach at our club are listed below. We don't expect our players to be perfect at all the life skills listed below all the time. This is a learning process and we will use the game of basketball to help teach life lessons that will help them in life. We just ask that all players have a positive attitude as we challenge them physically and mentally to develop the life skills listed below. It is about the journey.

  • Respect, Sportsmanship, Leadership, Confident, Responsibility, Teamwork, Effort, Self-Esteem, and Integrity
