Saturday Morning Basketball

Sign-up for Saturday Morning Basketball (S.B.A.) starts now.  S.B.A. has no coaches, no practices, and if you have other things to do on a Saturday morning you don’t have to come.  Everyone plays; no one sits on the bench.  In S.B.A. we just play games and have fun.  


Games will be played on Saturday mornings at 9:00 am in the gym.  Only students that do not play on a school team or XYBA are eligible to sign up.  We need a minimum of 10 students to sign up in order to have a program this year.  Please email Mr. Linsmeier (jlinsmeier@xaviercatholicschools.org) with questions, or to sign up.
