League Notes


Game/Practice Days
Season after season things change slightly for us at Shepherd Sports depending on how many athletes sign up and the needs of the gym space for church wide activities. The following is what we have planned for our 2023 Winter Season but could potentially change slightly. Most of our sessions take place in the Shepherd Gym but there is a chance others gyms could be used if needed.  Winter league will be a 7 game season with 6-7 practices.

5/6 Division will practice/play on Fridays 430-8pm.
7/8 Division will practice/play on Sundays 415-8pm.
**Friday 7/8 Division will practice/play on Fridays 545 or 7pm

13-15 Division will practice Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday 6 or 7pm. Games are Mondays 6 or 7pm.

Skill Assessment Day
This day serves as our deadline for the league and we require all players to attend Skill Assessment Day (S.A.D.) This will be an opportunity for our staff and volunteer coaches to evaluate the skill level of each player in the league. S.A.D. usually takes about an hour for each age group and is mandatory for every player in the league. This day serves as a practice for the kids and gets them comfortable with the gym too. Times for each age group are listed above. Athletes that do not come to S.A.D. are at risk of bring replaced by someone on the waiting list and/or moved to another team during the season to help fulfill the needs of the league.

Parent Night
At Parent Night we will go through an overview of the league -our goals, the heart behind the program, league Rules and Expectations. League practice times/days will also be announced and you will have a chance to meet your coach. Please make sure you attend this mandatory meeting. Athletes are welcome.
