Girls' Basketball General Information

 

We are excited to share information for the 2017-18 girls' basketball season which will begin in October.

About Meridian Girls' Basketball

Meridian School plans to have three league basketball teams for girls for the 2017-2018 Basketball season.  We expect to offer Varsity, a JV team and one Middle School team. The actual teams we will offer will depend on registration and performance at tryouts.  If minimum, qualified participation for a team is not met, the team will not form. 

 

Parents are needed to serve at games in many roles: scoring, concessions, stats, entry sales, etc. Participation on the basketball team includes an expectation that parents will commit to serving in these roles throughout the season.
