>> The regular registration period for basketball ends 10/16/2016 for grades 2 - 12. There is a late period that follows that will only put players on a Wait List with no guarantee of placement on a team.
>> Athletic (select) team registration for grades 4,5,6 will be done by checking a box during registration and must be completed by Oct. 1 so tryouts can be scheduled. Additional fees for Athletic team registration will be collected after the player makes the team. Select tryouts for both boys& girls will be held October 8th and 9th at the Middle School Gym
>>Notes for Grades 7-12
Often 7th & 8th graders are slower to decide if they will play on a rec team if they are not on the school team, coaches are harder to recruit for this age group and participation may be limited due to a lack of coach volunteers. If you or someone you know is interested in coaching a team (regardless of child participation) please have them email
so we can put you on the list. All coaching level welcome.
>> Athletic team tryouts (for 4th, 5th and 6th grade boys and girls only) are scheduled for October with dates and times to be determined from gym time made available by the IH schools once their programs have been scheduled.. We have reinstated our 2008-9 procedures for tryouts. Tryouts will be held at each of the 4th, 5th, and 6th grade levels if there is sufficient participation in the tryouts that are held. If there are not enough players (minimum 8) then that gender/grade will NOT have an Athletic team this season. We will not reopen registrations or schedule additional tryouts at later dates. No player who does not attend the tryouts may be placed on an athletic (select) team. Previous select coaches may return, but are not guaranteed to coach unless their children are chosen by the independent group of evaluators at tryouts. Coaches will not be named in advance for that reason.
>> The rec basketball draft for grades 2 - 12 will take place October 17-19th.
>> Practices for teams will begin sometime in November Coaches will get their gym times assigned to them by the coordinators in early November
>> Games will begin the first weekend in December and may be on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday.The league scheduler will try to schedule two games per week for the first three weeks in December to allow for future inclement weather problems and in an effort to start the tournament earlier and end the season earlier than has happened in the past.
>> 2nd grade teams have practiced once a week in the primary school gym and will do so again unless additional gym space for our entire program can be arranged. In the past we have been able to use some limited time at venues such as the IH Winter Club, Rockwern Academy, Cincinnati Country Day, and St. Paul Methodist Church, but their use is not currently scheduled and the cost is not factored into our registration fee structure.
>> All other grades practice twice a week in the Indian Hill Schools Primary, Elementary, and Middle School gyms, as well as some nearby gyms, depending on gym assignment.
