• The Boy's Basketball Program offers boys in grades 5th though 8th, an opportunity to learn the skills and the sport of basketball in an encouraging and supportive environment.

    The 5th grade level stresses instruction throughout the year. It is more of a developmental year for the boys.

    6th grade still concentrates on development but starts to get players ready for serious completion with a winning mindset.

    In 7th and 8th grade, while continuing teaching the kids new aspects of the game, the concentration is on winning games as a team while trying to get better individually.

    Sign up usually takes place in mid-October with practice starting in November. The season runs from December into mid- April. Our coaching staff consists of volunteers who are knowledgeable in the game but also enjoy working with the boys in getting them fundamentally sound. We work to ensure that the kids have fun and play hard while maintaining their grades, all while representing St. Mary of Riverside in a respectful and positive manner on and off the court.
