The DECS Boys Basketball Program begins practice on October 30th. Practices will be on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays before we start playing games. Practices will be at North Star from 4:15 to 6pm. The first game will be on Thursday, November 30th. Games are scheduled for Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout the season, with the occasional Monday. Once we start playing games we will be having practices on Mondays only. Please see the attached schedule for specific dates for games and practices.
Boys need to have a current sports physical on file with the school nurse to be able to compete in games. Sports physicals are good for 3 years
Games at home will begin at 4:45 for 7th graders and 5:45 for 8th graders. Away games will begin at 4:30, unless otherwise specified.
Boys are expected to maintain their grades throughout the basketball season. Boys will NOT be allowed to play in games if they are failing any classes (no F’s). Boys will NOT play with 3 or more D’s in their classes. Boys that receive behavior referrals the day before or the day of a game will have limited playing time for that game.
The North Star Basketball Signup Packet is from the Athletics Forms link on the left.
