We also run an in-house basketball league for boys and girls ages 5-13, our season starts in September and runs until November.  We have clinics that run in August for all kids that are registered to play with the Knights.   Last year, we ran three divisions of play. One division was for 7-8 year olds (our rookie division) and our second division was JV for kids ages 9-11. DHAA  and the third division was for Varsity kids.

Coach Joe Girgenti discusses strategy with his team in 1998 game

St. Bernadette objective for our basketball program is to aid in the development of individual player skills, team skills, and social skills.   It is our belief that players can be taught a new basketball skill but until it is put to proper use in a “game” situation, it really has not been learned.  The teaching of correct fundamentals and sportsmanship at an early age cannot be emphasized strongly enough. We also participate in Travel leagues such as BCBA, IBL, Kingsbay and Guadalupe with our older players.   In 2014 , we had travel teams in seven different age divisions including 8,9,10,11,12,13 and 14 plus we have a Girls Varsity Travel team.
