RUSH Basketball Families,

It’s time for the 2022-2023 basketball season!!

This year, in addition to our returning players, we have some new friends coming too. We have 12u, 14u, and 18u teams for the girls; 8u, 14u, and multiple 16u/18u teams for the boys.

There are three more Friday night, open gyms in September. These are great opportunities to shoot around, work on fundamentals, and scrimmage with your buddies. The coaches are present to coordinate the events. The open gym schedules can be viewed on the RUSH website: www.goteamRUSH.com, Sports Plus, or Team Snap.

With our spring/summer programs, we learned SportsPlus does not offer some features we prefer with TeamSnap. We decided to move back to the TeamSnap app for RUSH communication. After you complete your online player registration through the RUSH website, your player will be connected to their team.  After you are connected on Team Snap app, you can delete Sports Plus.

Beginning tonight will be available to answer basketball-related RUSH questions at the remaining RUSH open gyms. The RUSH website is open for basketball enrollment beginning NOW! Sign up today, get ready to play! If you have questions about enrolling, the open gym gatherings will be the perfect place to get answers. You may also call or text me AD Greg Faulconer (417-631-8985), or Suzanne Graves (417-773-1764) for help.

On September 16, there will be a required meeting that at least one parent or legal guardian must attend. During that meeting, players will meet with their coaches; teammates, update TeamSnap photos and details, sizing for uniforms, and register volunteers for home events. Talk to your coach in advance if you cannot attend the meeting.

The team profiles and fees are subject to change before registration, but this is what we see now:
