About Brownsburg Girls Hoops:

Brownsburg Girls Hoops is a competitive travel program governed by BJBL (Brownsburg Junior Basketball League). These teams are school based which means, players must reside in the Brownsburg school district or have a parent that works for the Brownsburg Community School Corporation. It is our goal to place girls on a competitive team based on their skill level. We plan to field 2 teams per grade level (depending on # of girls and skill level, a 3rd team may be considered). In the unfortunate event this cannot be accommodated due to various factors, ‘cuts’ may be necessary. A league official will notify you regarding selection status. The Girls Hoops program is available for players in 3rd grade through 8th grade. However, evaluations will be open to 2nd graders. One 2nd grade team will be selected only if the evaluators feel they are ready for this level of play. The 2nd grade team would be placed in a 3rd grade division since many leagues do not offer 2nd grade divisions.

You can pre-register at www.brownsburgbasketball.com

 

Practice and Game Information:

Practices will begin the week of August 19th. Each team will practice 2x per week for 1 ½ hours.

The Girls Hoops league will consist of participation in a Saturday league (IYBL at Pacers Athletic Center in Westfield) and a Fall and Winter Sunday league through IGHL.

• Saturday League (IYBL) game times will vary throughout the day. These are typically single games every Saturday but can be double headers depending on the schedule.  Season dates TBD.

• IGHL Sunday game times typically start no earlier than noon with the latest game starting at 5:30pm. The IGHL regular season games rotate every other Sunday. Fall Season will run from September – mid November. Winter season will run December – mid February for 3rd through 6th grade and late November until mid-December for 7th and 8th grade.
