SELECT Open Gyms Begin Monday Sept 11th - Tryout Schedule Posted

Open Gyms are meant only for players interested in trying out for Great Falls Select.   
Great Falls Select will have teams for girls and boys in grades 5, 6, 7 and 8 only.  (3rd and 4th graders see note below). 
The September Open Gyms give players a chance to shake the rust off and get some court time before tryouts begin in October.  Open Gyms are not a tryout, just a chance to get comfortable on the court before tryouts begin.

SPECIAL NOTE- 4th and 3rd Graders
Great Falls Basketball uses a grade-based placement system and does not permit House League players to play up or play down in the House league based on age, size, or subjective factors including skill level, scoring ability, ball handling, prior experience, etc.

Players of unusual size or who possess unusually strong talent should consider trying out for the 5th Grade Select program or the Fourth Grade Developmental program.  If a third or fourth grade player does not make a 5th grade select team, they can try out for the 4th grade developmental program.
