2021 Winter Basketball Activities are in progress. To check out our league visit our games at Patriot Oaks Academy Gym on Saturdays 8am-4pm for 4-9th grade and 4-6pm for High School. Also CLICK HERE to subscribe to our YouTube channel


SPRING REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!


Our teams and divisions may be a mix of recreational with volunteer coach, preformed by a coach and tournament/club teams with paid coach.

REGISTRATION OPTIONS:


Age 6U - 8U - 10U New & developing players Select BC Ballers Development Academy - Every season these young players practice in the Patriot Oaks Gym usually on Wednesdays at 6pm and then practice and play on Saturday mornings at 8am and are evaluated weekly to match up for 3v3 or 4v4 games based on their development level as we prepare them to enter 5v5 competitive team play.

8U-14U - Our League Directors' goal is to have all divisions be balanced and all games to be as close as possible, especially in the 8-14U age group. We ultimately want to foster the love of the game of basketball with all players of all skill levels.

But the reality is... this is a very competitive league and all players, parents and coaches should be prepared to handle
competitive play and the potential to win or lose by a significant margin and still maintain a high level of sportsmanship. Even the NBA, which is structured for team parity, often has blowouts.

If you or your player are not able to emotionally handle winning and losing at any margin and your player is under 10U you should sign them up for our BC Ballers basketball 
development program. Older players that don't want to play competitively should sign up for one of the other great basketball programs in the area which are less competitive.

High School - Typically our high school divisions break down into 12 or more teams in a split JV/Varsity style divisions. Make sure to answer all of the registration questions correctly so we can try to place individual registrants and teams in the best spot we can.

Girls Competitive - This division is in a waitlist format, so registrants will not be charged until teams are formed. Coach Laettner wants to kickstart a girls program, so based on the level of interest, if possible, we will form the most balanced divisions we can and/or we will have tryouts/evaluations of the registrants and form a girls competitive basketball team who will play weekly against North Florida  club teams that we invite in to our gym to play competitive games. Costs may vary based on what we form, so spread the word to all girls who love basketball and want to play for a Blue Chip club directed by Coach Christian Laettner

NEW UNIFORMS!!
We are at our uniform refresh period so make sure to look at the size chart and order the proper sized uniform.
If your player is growing quickly maybe order 1 size up as this uniform will be used for at least 2 or 3 seasons so you will only need to purchase a uniform once and then for subsequent seasons you will only pay the lower cost registration only fee.

TEAM REGISTRATION PROCESS
OPTION 1
BLUE CHIP PREFORMED TEAMS
Coaches that play with teams in Blue Chip uniforms that want to bring a preformed group of more than 4 players will be automatically classified as competitive and if they have a roster of less than 10 they will be assigned players who have asked to play competitively.

So based on the number of overall individual players registered and waiting to be placed on teams, a team roster may be 8-12 players.

To register a team this way the Coach should have their players register on the site as an INDIVIDUAL player and during registration when asked:
Are you part of a preformed team? Select Yes
Type coaches name: Put Coach's last name
The coach should also email their roster with the subject line "Preformed Team Roster" to [email protected]

OPTION 2
FOR FULLY FORMED TEAMS/CLUBS WITH THEIR OWN NON-BLUE CHIP UNIFORMS
The coach should email with the subject line "Outside preformed team" to [email protected] to receive details on club team acceptance, cost and get the team code to register their players for proper age/grade verification.

Outside preformed teams are automatically considered competitive and for any AAU/Tournament type teams, if we do not have enough to form a division of at least 4, may play a division or two up.

RECREATIONAL DIVISION VS COMPETITIVE DIVISION REWARDS (League is Recreational by default. Competitive divisions will form based on the registration composition and formation of enough competitive players/teams to form a truly competitive division of 4 or more teams. (Competitive division definition is: minimum of 6 teams of 8+ age verified competitive players.) If there is not a fully formed competitive division then rewards will default to the Recreational level.

Recreational Division Champions will receive a team trophy.

Blue Chip Champion DriFit Shirts and if the team returns at least 80% of their players for the following season they will receive a 50% off registration Champions reward.

YEAR-ROUND TRAINING AND PLAY FOR BASKETBALL FOCUSED PLAYERS
