All Saints Youth Basketball - Dunwoody's competitive youth league

Registration for the All Saints 2016-2017 youth basketball season will end on Friday, October 7, 2016.  When you register, please make sure you indicate which days you cannot practice.  It is very difficult to switch teams once they have been drafted. We cannot guarantee carpool or friend requests.

Important Upcoming 2016/2017 Dates & Deadlines:

  • October 7 – registration closes
  • October 17-20– Evaluations and Drafts beginning at 6pm each night
    • October 17 – 7/8 yr. olds
    • October 18 - 9/10 yr. olds (7/8 yr. draft – coaches only)
    • October 19 – 11/12 yr. olds (9/10 yr. draft – coaches only)
    • October 20 – 13/14 yr. olds  (11/12 yr. draft – coaches only)
  • October 24 – First Week of Practice
Practices are held on Sunday-Friday beginning at 5pm (4pm on Sunday).  Each team will have one practice per week.  Practices for all age groups are one hour and half court.

**Please note that practices are held SUNDAY-FRIDAY.  If there's a particular day that DOES NOT work for you, please include that on your notes when you register.  It is very hard to rearrange teams once they have been drafted.**

Who's Eligible?

Our program is open to boys in our parish and community ages 7-17**.  Age cut-off is September 1.

**This year we are adding a league for boys ages 15-17.  This age group will have 4-6 teams.  There will be no weekly practices.  Games will be played mostly on Friday evenings, with some Sundays.

Each team will have one game per week with the possibility of one bye week.  Games will be on Saturdays (beginning at 8AM) or Sundays (beginning at 12PM).  Most games are held on Saturdays.  There will be two weeks during the season where some teams may have a weeknight game, but it is still TBD.

Request Policy

We will take ONE request based on practice conflicts. We cannot take requests based on carpooling, coaches, or friends.  Siblings are the only guarantee to be placed on the same team unless otherwise noted. Also, each team is allowed two official coaches, one head coach, and one assistant coach, who are guaranteed to have their kids on their team. Our goal is to have balance among teams so that each team is competitive.

Evaluation Policy

Mandatory evaluations will be held for all players. Players must be evaluated before they are allowed to participate.  Everyone will be placed on a team. Evaluations are to ensure that teams are as balanced as possible.
