An Intramural evaluation will be held in late October for the purpose of splitting teams up evenly.

This level is open to 3rd-8th graders who will participate in Anne Arundel County and/or Baltimore CYO leagues. There will be separate teams for boys and girls at each grade level. Teams will meet twice a week for practice in local gyms with game(s) on the weekends. Uniforms must be purchased for all players.
Please note that players that sign up for Competitive basketball are not guaranteed a spot on a team. If necessary, evaluations will be in October to meet roster maximums. Full refunds will be issued to players that do not make a team or if not enough players register to form a team in a particular age group. Every effort will be made to allow all that registered to participate.
