AnchorGirls Only K-2 Basketball

Sometimes girls just want to have fun on their own.  This is a great opportunity for your young daughter to learn about basketball and pull out some moves of their own.  Class is Tues/Thurs, January 15, 17, 22, 24, 29, 31.  Class is after school, on campus at BES gym and only $30.  Register today for a fun class for girls only! 

AnchorInstructional League Basketball-Register to

Uniforms are going out, schedules are up on the webpage, practices are happening and the week of returning to school we will start games.  Please register on to receive important texts regarding game or practice schedules changes due to hazardous weather conditions.  You will only receive messages regarding basketball, no spam.  This is the ONLY way we will contact you regarding any changes.  It is in your best interest to take the time to do this.  Instructions to do this can be found here.

Please stay in contact with your coach as to whether your child will be at practices or not.  Coaches deserve this courtesy as volunteer coaches and they spend a lot of time away from their family and job to do this service to insure your child is playing in the league.  It is the least you can do.

Thank you.  I look forward to a great season of basketball!

Denver Nuggets Skill Challenge

AnchorDon’t forget the Denver Nuggets Skills Challenge is on Tuesday, January 22 at 4:45 in the BES Gym.  This FREE local competition is for ages 6-13 to test skills in passing, dribbling and shooting.  Winners of each age group, boys and girls, will then move on to the sectionals (usually in Grand Junction) and compete for their chance to take on the state competition in Denver at a Denver Nuggets game.  Basalt has usually had some good showings in this challenge so here is the chance for your player to shine!  Download registration and participant's scoresheet to fill out and bring to the competition.
