    Competitive Levels
    Our program has four levels - 9th grade, 10th grade, JV and Varsity. The number of players per team depends on the total number of program participants. Players will be placed at the level that is appropriate for their physical, mental/emotional and competitive skills.

    Typical Season Schedule
    Two games per week, generally Tuesdays and Fridays with some exceptions. Home games take place at Edina High School. We travel to various schools for away games and the schedule is available on the girls’ basketball website. 

     

    Game Times

    • 9th grade team: 4:00pm
    • 10th grade team: 4:15pm
    • JV: 5:30pm

    Three to four practices per week 3:45-5:45pm. JV/Varsity level practices most Saturdays 9:00-11:00am as well.

    Players are expected to commit to attending all practices and games and should communicate any foreseen conflicts early and often directly with the coach.
