This program has ended this fall. We look forward to our 2nd Annual Fall Fast Break League next year.

Competitive Fall Fast Break Program

The Competitive Fall Fast Break Program is a continuous game for experienced players (typically travel level). Each player will be placed on team (within each grade level) and coaches can instruct their players from the sidelines. Parent volunteers will keep score during the game. Each game has a 15 minute warm up followed by four 8 minute quarters (depending on the grade) that is officiated. More details, including the rules & regulations, will be sent to each participant based on current state COVID Group/Pod Guidelines prior to the first game.

The Higher Learning Fast Break League was a great success this year and my squad asked when the next league started immediately following our last game. This style of play helps encourage a sense of urgency, how to find the outlet pass, filling the lanes and moving without the ball. Great program and we look forward to the next season.

Thanks for all your hard work and for bringing a great program to our town. Your professionalism, attention to detail, and knowledge is second to none. It was fun for the kids and great to talk hoops with you guys.

The Fast Break League was an excellent opportunity to have our kids get out on the court, outside and under the lights, for some high-touch basketball.

Each player received equal playing time, which gave the kids that don't get a ton of basketball practice the opportunity to be directly involved in a fast-paced games. the league also gives kids the chance to intermingle and see children from other towns.

Great job to Sean and Eric and we will see you next year.
