Mission: The st. Francis basketball association strives to provide an atmosphere for all players to learn, excel and have a fun basketball experience. Team assessments will evaluate skill levels and place them on teams with similar-skilled players to ensure a learning environment that will challenge them and develop their skills throughout the season! Our goal is to produce quality players that enjoy the game of basketball. Life skills of: working on teams, arriving timely for meetings, interactions with a variety of other teams, and staying active for health reasons are some of the goals met by the individuals playing on the teams. Since the schools do not have the funding for sports, the basketball association provides this service so that students continue to be active and participate in community sport events.
