4th/5th/6th Girls and Boys Art Sadtler League

League Philosophy

The Art Sadtler Youth Basketball League is an instructional league focused on teaching our young athletes the basic fundamentals of the game as well as providing an opportunity for students to experience the joy of participating in team sports. The objective is to provide fair playing time for all participants regardless of skill level. The league’s goal is to introduce the athletes to the importance of teamwork, fair play and sportsmanship without emphasizing the need for winning.

Eligibility

The league is open to all fourth, fifth and sixth grade boys and girls who comply with the league’s academic and disciplinary standards. If the level of participation is sufficient, the league will be divided into six divisions: fourth grade boys, fifth grade boys, sixth grade boys, fourth grade girls, fifth grade girls, and sixth grade girls.

League Cost

The cost will be $85 per player for 4/5th grade and $95 per player for 6th grade. There may be some reimbursement for 6th grade teams with large rosters. Entry fee includes a T-shirt and a personalized trophy for participation. The following admission fee of $2 for adults, $1 seniors and under 18 years old will be free. The admission will be collected at the gate each game day to help the host school cover the cost of clean-up and other expenses. Likewise a $2 admission fee will be charged during the year-end tournament.

Scores

The league focuses on participation, not winning and losing. Therefore, the scoreboard should be turned off when a team reaches a lead of 20 points of more. Scorekeepers should continue to keep the actual score in the master scorebook.  Published scores will reflect a 20 point maximum differential. Weekly league standings and scores will also be provided on the league’s web site (www.artsadtler.org).

Tournament

The season-ending tournament will be held in Mid March, please watch the web site for further details. Each team will play a minimum of two games. Since the tournament seeding is based on each team’s regular season standings, the exact time of your team’s first game may not be known until after your last regular season game. Similarly, times of additional games will be dependent upon the outcome of your child’s first game. Therefore, please keep your schedules flexible. Additional tournament information will be available in early March on the leagues web site (www.artsadtler.org).

League Web Site

A league web site is available at www.artsadtler.org. This is the primary source of communication, so please check it regularly for updated information. All relevant league rules and documents are available on the this site. A link is also provided to contact the league director with any questions or comments you may have.
