Jr. Pirates Hoops Program is a recreational-based basketball program designed to introduce the game to kids in Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade through the Jr. Dribblers and provide competitive basketball opportunities for kids in 3rd through 6th grade under the Jr. Pirate program. Both programs are open to girls and boys who either reside in the Pewaukee School District or attend one of the Pewaukee Public Schools.
Jr. Dribblers: K, 1st and 2nd Grade Program
This program provides basic skill development and recreational games for the youngest basketball player. Kids will be grouped by gender and work with volunteers to learn the fundamental skills of basketball. If you would like to participate as a volunteer please fill out a coaching application under the 'Coaches Info' tab in the Jr. Pirates menu tab.
Jr. Pirates: 3rd through 6th grade program
At the 3rd through 6th grade level, the program focuses on teaching and developing basic fundamental skills, having fun and learning the values of being part of a team and displaying good sportsmanship.
All games and practices are played at school gymnasiums of the Pewaukee School District. Please view the 'Schedule' tab in the Jr. Pirates menu to see dates for both programs.
Teams are coached by volunteer parents. If you have any interest coaching in our Jr. Pirate program, please fill out a coaching application under the 'Coaches Info' tab in the Jr. Pirates menu. On game days, a parent from each team is required to work the score table.
Players will receive a reversible jersey and short for games. Teams will be dressed in reversible jerseys and short for all games this season.
Program begins in early November and concludes in early February. Participants in the Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade program will take part in two weeks of instructional skills and drill sessions prior to games being played. During each practice session, participants will be watched to build rosters evenly. Teams will play games on the other five dates.
The intent of the Jr. Dribblers program is to provide kids an introduction to basketball in a fun-filled atmosphere. Teams may be picked differently to blend the kids each game day to provide a structured open-gym experience.
Season begins in early November and concludes in early February. Participants in the 3rd through 6th grade program will take part in two weeks of instructional skills and drill sessions prior to teams being formed. During each practice session, participants will be rated. The goal is to split the talent as evenly as possible. We do not have a draft or take into account car pools for building our rosters.
Teams will play double-headers on each league game date. A total of (8) league games will be played. The season concludes with the Jr. Pirate Tournament.
