Jr. Cats Basketball


Dear Parents/ Guardians,

We would like to formally invite your children who are in grades 3-8 to participate in the Jr. Cats Basketball Program. This is a long standing intramural basketball league for our youth at Axtell Community School.

For girls, the skill sessions (fundamentals) will last an hour and a half; this is to primarily focus on the fundamentals of the game. A strong fundamental foundation needs to take precedence in order for gameplay to be successful. For gameplay we will run two courts with grades 3-5 on one court and 6-8 on the other. Teams will change from week to week and we will try to match up teams as evenly as possible. Game play will consist of 2-15 minute halves with running clock.

For boys, the focus will be on skill sessions, with game time made available as time permits and per Coach’s direction.

Each participant will receive a plain purple and white reversible jersey to keep. We will continue to keep the 5 Saturday format with the kids participating in halftimes of two games 3rd – 6th only for halftimes of games. The fee is $20.00 to cover cost of the jersey and all remaining money will be donated back to both the boys and girls basketball programs. If you have any questions please call GBB Coach Kelly Cooksley (308)-325-5688 or BBB Coach Chris Callan at the school (308)-743-2415.
