3rd-4th grade Basketball PM Class / season:

  • The season will go from right after the Ace Week break, up to the last week of March.
  • The schedule will consist of 2 games and one practice a week, for a total of 8 games.
  • The games will be 4x8mins running clock. So the games will be about 45mins long.
  • Most players who participate have little to no prior experience.
  • The coaches for the team will be Ron Thomas, assisted by Chrissy Beeler.
  • This season comes as part of the registration for Ron’s Wednesday Basketball PM Class. Just register for the PM class and you’re set.
  • The main goal is not to be competitive and win the league, but to give our students an early chance at being part of a school team and have fun while playing kids from other schools.

For practices: We encourage all players to attend the Wednesday Basketball PM Class led by Ron. This class will be our practice time. Make sure your child wears P.E clothes and sneakers, and that they bring a bottle of water.

For games: Games will be half home, half away, usually one of each every week.

For home games, after school students should go to PM snack to get a little snack, then go to the gym for the game. Players need to be in the gym dressed and ready to warm-up at least 20mins prior to game time. Please make sure your child has a water bottle. We will provide uniforms at the beginning of the season, to be returned at the end of the season.

For away games, unfortunately F.A.I.S does not provide transportation to and from away games, parents are responsible to coordinate carpools if needed. To help encourage carpooling we provide a team roster with parents emails to communicate and coordinate.
