If your child is between grades 1-8 and looking to improve their skills, make new friends, and engage in friendly competition with players from around the state, then register now for the NJB Winter League!
Registration for the Sequoia chapter of this league is now open at the website. Go to www.sequoianjb.com.
Our chapter provides the following basketball programs:
Girls and boys in first grade through fourth grade will receive high level, high energy, fundamental basketball instruction powered by Team Esface and participate in scrimmage games. Rookies practice and scrimmage one 90-minute session per week for 10 consecutive weeks on Friday evenings from 5:00pm until 6:30pm beginning September 14, 2012 through November 16, 2012.
This is a great program for the beginning player. See Team Esface’s Rookie League highlights from last season.
ROOKIE LEAGUE FEES:
Players participate in a mandatory evaluation in October and are drafted onto a team of 10 players coached by volunteers. Players participate in 2 – 1 hour practices each week beginning the week of October 20, 2012. Teams will play about 9 Sunday games against other Division teams within the NJB Silicon Valley Section, including a playoff tournament, from December 2, 2012 through March 24, 2013. Each player is guaranteed to play 2 of the 5 periods in each game. Some players will be eligible to play in an additional All Stars tournament at the end of the season. Divisional league is comprised of all boy teams and all girl teams. No coed teams.
There are three divisions: third and fourth graders play in Division 3, fifth and sixth graders play in Division 2, and seventh and eighth graders play in Division 1. The number of teams formed depends upon the number of players who register and the availability of local gyms for practices.

Early in August 2012, Coach Dele had the opportunity to play alongside local legend-in-the-making and Houston Rocket Jeremy Lin in a Burgess Park Adult League game. Lin, recovering from a knee injury, has been playing in local leagues as a way to stay fresh and sharp before his next 2nd NBA season.
The Gymrats, with Dele and #Linsanity at the helm, were understandably unstoppable. Here’s a few of the highlights from that game.
