Select Basketball 2nd* - 6th grades

        2018-2019 Season

* 2nd grade boys will have a team and 2nd grade girls may try out for 3rd grade girls teams


Kettering Basketball Club (Future Firebirds) is a non-profit organization for both boys and girls who attend Fairmont feeder schools** and who want to play youth basketball on a competitive level.   Organizations such as this are more commonly known as “Select” Basketball Clubs because there is a tryout process that a player must go through in order to be selected for a team. There will be one or two teams per grade for both boys and girls depending on numbers of players and coaches.

**exceptions may be made for returning players and for teams with less than full rosters


Tryouts:         There is no charge for tryouts if you register online or at open gym/tryouts.

Cost:              $200* per player (Payment plans are available. Includes reversible jersey, shooting shirt & shorts to keep)               * No fundraiser this season

When:            Teams will begin practice in early-mid October.  League games start in late November-early December and end in late February with a season ending tournament to follow.
