EVALUATIONS

Evaluations are simply a way for our league to evaluate the skills of each participant so that all teams are created equally.  The evaluations include shooting (three stations @ 10 shots each), dribbling (left hand and right hand around cones for 30 seconds each), and defense (defensive slide back and forth between cones for 30 seconds).  Height of each participant is also measured and taken into account.  After all participants are evaluated, each is given an overall score and then assigned to a team based on that score so that the average scores of all teams in each division are roughly the same.  Every player must attend one basketball evaluation.
