COVID Protocols

OAA Girls Basketball will be reviewing guidance from the Minnesota State High School League regarding the pandemic.

Girls Recreational Basketball

Your athlete should be registered based on the grade she is in when registering.  The three leagues are:

  • 3rd and 4th grade
  • 5th and 6th grade
  • 7th and 8th grade

The goal of the program is to provide an enjoyable, positive environment in which participants learn the fundamentals of basketball. Success should be measured by the improvements in each player's skills and knowledge of basketball. OAA teams compete with surrounding communities. 

Typically, teams practice for one 75 minute session per week and play one game per week. Practices are on weeknights and typically begin in mid-November. Games are on Saturday mornings and afternoons and typically start in early December and continue into late February or early March. Practice time/locations will be set after the school district allocates gym times.

Tournament Information

All leagues will participate in a post season tournament. More information to come when available.

Assembling Teams

When registering, a player can express a preference for a friend and/or a coach. Preferences will be satisfied in the following order:

  • Satisfy family relationships.
  • Satisfy coach's preference for one player.
  • Satisfy player preferences in order by registration date and time.
  • Assign players based on a common unsatisfied preference.
  • Assign players based on school.
  • Assign any remaining players where ever the player fits.

Ideally all preferences could be satisfied. Unfortunately, this is may be impossible due to constraints such as balancing the total number of players on each team.  The only thing promised is that if you coach, your child is on your team.

Registering early can significantly contribute to having preferences satisfied. Please do not assume teams stay together.

REFUND POLICY

If we do not have a  season due to the pandemic, all players will receive a full refund.

Assuming we have a season, all refunds are subject to a $10.00 processing fee.  Refunds, as well as the amount of the refund are left to the discretion of the league director.  Partial refunds are also subject to the $10.00 processing fee.  Refunds may take up to 15 business days to process.
