Fall scrimmage sessions
Fall Scrimmage Sessions
Our fall programming offers developmental training opportunities that varies by age range. A combination of skill and play is built into each age group as we believe this best helps players develop. HIgh School and Middle School grade levels will have licensed OHSAA referees. The sessions will run September 12 – October 3. Please read below for more details on this years fall scrimmage sessions. Do not hesitate to sign-up as these sessions will sell out at all grade levels.
The high school session features two scrimmages each week monitored by a OHSAA certified referee. Locations are being finalized but will likely rotate among the Northside Christian School in Westerville and Better than Yesterday in Marysville.
Middle School Grades 6-8 Format
This league features two scrimmages each week monitored by a OHSAA certified referee.
We will begin each week with a brief review of motion offense and team defense principles.
We will play two 20 minute halves, rotating new players in every 5 minutes.
1 timeout per half and the clock stops final minute on any dead-balls.
3-minute warm ups and 3-minute halftime
Final 2 minutes you can freely substitute as needed.
We will carry 1 ref per court. Only team fouls will be kept. Shooting 1 shot after 8 fouls in half, with 1 automatic point. All ‘and 1’ shots will count as a basket and a foul shot made. Two shot fouls we will shoot 1 shot only with an automatic point.
Rosters will be set up based on aligning kids by grade and to their schools 1st and foremost. We will take the 1st week to adjust rosters to even them out if needed. Keep in mind we won’t ever be able to make this perfect, so please approach with an open mind.
In the middle school level, we have to maintain rosters to keep only 2 players per 7th & 8th grade middle school on a team, per OHSAA rules.
SOLD OUT! Elementary Grades 4-5 and Junior Pumas Grades 2-3 Format
We will play two 20 minute halves with 10 man rosters, rotating 5 new players in every 5 minutes. Coaches will ref the games so they can stop and instruct as needed. There are no fouls kept.
One game per weekend, plus the skill work is plenty! These youngsters will be tired and that is why we keep 10 man rosters at this age. Some elementary scrimmages may be plyaed on Wednesday night between 6:00pm-9:00pm.
Junior Pumas Grades 2-3
This grade level will be consist of more skill based sessions with some coach controlled play opportunities.
