Up to two teams of typically 10 to 12 players in each grade may be selected.

A second team at the 6th, 7th and/or 8th grade level may be selected when turnout and ability allows. This team will play in the NCC Travel Basketball League (NCC) which provides strong competition from smaller towns in a similar region. Criteria for player selection will include, but not be limited to: athleticism, skill, attitude, commitment and the need for team balance.
