General Information

In-House basketball is a multi-community based developmental program for beginning or less experienced players in which players learn the fundamentals of basketball through practices and games.  It is not uncommon to have players without any experience playing in all levels of our house league .

Season

1st - 4th Grade runs mid September - mid November
5th - 8th Grade runs December to March
High School runs January to March

1st-2nd Grade - Elk River League

This level of play introduces young players to fundamentals of basketball.  Teams have practice in Elk River for 1 hour a week and will compete each Saturday morning at Elk River gyms in standard skill drill competitions followed by a game.  Game scores are not kept at this level.  There are no referees. Coaches are on the court during games to help guide players.  As the season progresses players are encouraged to follow basic rules such as no traveling, double dribble, etc.  Baskets are set at 8  feet.  Kindergarteners ready to play in-house basketball are welcome to participate. 

3rd-4th Grade - elk river league

Fundamentals and skills continue to be emphasized at this level. However, coaches also introduce the girls to game play strategies.  Players compete each Saturday morning in standard skill drill competitions followed by a scored, refereed regular game.  Players receive equal playing time.  Baskets are set at 9 feet.  Our program is designed to develop players at all levels from beginners to those with a few years of experience.  Practices are 1 hour a week.

Northwest Metro League Information

ERGYB teams will practice in Elk River, however, games are played in the NorthWest Metro League against other  Elk River, Brooklyn Park, Champlin Park, Amstrong/Cooper and  Rogers area in-house teams.

There will be several jamboree and tournament events held throughout the season as scheduled by NWML. See their website for more details.  

Teams

Team rosters are formed by the In-House director with the assistance of other board members.  We strive to create evenly balanced teams based on coach evaluations from the previous year.  There will be no “trading” of players without the approval of the In House director and both head coaches.  Coaches will contact parents with preliminary practice times after the coaches meetings.

If you are registering for a Northwest Metro League, there may be evaluations if the number of players registered are not suitable to rostering 8 players per team.

Coaches

Volunteer coaches are needed in order for In-House to be a success! If you are interested in coaching, please make that indication while registering your daughter. Coaches must register online prior to the meeting to collect information needed to issue gym permits and run mandatory background screenings, which are required for all coaches. 

A mandatory coaches clinic is designed to help guide all coaches with age appropriate drills & skills.  It is also when coaches receive rosters and equipment bags, sign up for practice times and go over rules. 

Referees

If you are a high school student interested in reffing In-House games this season, please contact the in-house assistant. Referee training is held in early September.

In-House Refund Policy

See the current policies and handbook for current refund policies.

Questions or concerns should be sent to the In-House Directors.
