The Utah Junior Jazz is a basketball program for kids kindergarten through sixth grade (must be a minimum of five years of age). Junior Jazz is a great starter to school sports, keeps our kids fit and healthy, helps them to develop the necessary skills to play basketball, and teaches good sportsmanship early on. The registration deadline is February 20, 2018. No late entries will be accepted. Registration fee is $16 (which includes Junior Jazz Jersey). Jammin’ Shorts cost $10 but are not required.
Practices will start mid-March with the first games (still to be made final) on March 24th, 2018, in Hanna, with the last game being April 21st or April 28th, 2018, in Hanna.The end date will depend on if we start March 24th or have to wait for the first game on April 7th, 2018. (The recreation center directors from Hanna, Saratoga, and Encampment are still working on this now.) No games on March 31st during spring break. The Hanna Parks and Recreation Center hosts two game Saturday’s with Saratoga visiting and then Encampment visiting. Then the Hanna teams will visit Saratoga once and Encampment once. Both will also be Saturday games. It is the parent’s responsibility to get kids to the games and practices in and out of town. Coaches and other parents can be asked to help if there is a need for a child to get a ride. Practices days and times will be determined by the coaches. Most coaches practice during the week once or twice in the evening hours here at the Hanna Recreation Center. Schedules will come out after registration is closed, so we have an idea of how many teams we have and number of games we will need.
Teams will be set up as K-1st, 2nd-3rd, 4th-5th, and any 6th graders who would like to join can. Each team will have 6 to 8 kids per team, to give more playing time, unless teams need to be combined due to lack of participants in a certain age group.
