Age Determining Dates
Players must play in the division
of their current grade unless they are approved by the league to play up
a grade level. Players are not allowed to
play down a grade. The age determining dates are only
used to determine if a player is too old to play with his or her grade
and must play up a grade division. The age determining dates are in
line with UIL and TAPPS rules which govern most school athletics in the
state of Texas. The following chart offers a quick reference for
determining player eligibility. Players who do not meet the division
criteria for eligibility are not eligible to participate in that
division and must play up. There is no appeal available to the parents nor opportunity
for board review. When two grades are combined to form one division,
the higher (older) grade is used for age determination.
HS Graduation Year
Player is not Eligible if the Player Date
of Birth Is Prior to:

sign a statement of understanding. Coaches meeting dates are listed on the

Before the season starts we will conduct a coaching clinic for all
coaches in our league. During this clinic we will provide
suggested drills, plays, strategy and other tips to help you be the best
coach, leader and mentor possible for the children and their families.

There will be a post-season tournament in the NBA (3rd - 6th
divisions. Participation in this tournament is an added bonus and
not a right. It is not guaranteed that all teams will make it into
the tournament (at least 4 teams from each division will qualify for the
post-season tournament). Seeding in this tournament will be determined
based on win/loss record during the regular season. In the event
of ties the online standings may not be correct (please check the
official rules for tie breaker rules). Teams will only advance to
the post-season tournament if they can field a team of at least 5
players and one coach at the Skills Clinic (please check key
dates for date and time). The tournament is a single elimination
tournament. Failure to attend the Skills Clinic is
considered a loss in the tournament.
All games will be played at Prestonwood Baptist Church

NCAA games are played in the Sports and Fitness Center (SFC).
