Information for Montgomery Kids Basketball 2016 Season

League Organization

Montgomery Kids basketball is sponsored by Montgomery United Methodist Church and is associated with Upward Sports.  The league is organized by school grade as follows (all teams are co-ed):

K5 (5 years of age by January 1 or kindergarten)
Grades 1-2
Grades 3-4
Grades 5-6

Although MKBB is associated with Upward Sports, we enforce local rules, which are published each year on this site before online registration begins.
Scores are kept for all games, regardless of level.
Upward substitution rules are enforced for all levels which provides equal playing time for all players.
Grade 5/6 standings are posted and there is a year-end tournament for this division only.
Certified TAPPS (Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools) referees officiate all games with the exception of K5.
All coaches and assistant coaches are volunteers.

Every player must complete a skills evaluation test before being drafted on a team.  The Team drafts are done by computer and the skills test scores from player evaluations are the basis of the draft.  This allows us to draft teams with fairly equal talent and provides for a more competitive league.

We do not honor car pool or friend requests.  Each volunteer coach is allowed to request one player whose parent will be designated as the assistant coach.

Last year we had over 250 children in the MKBB program.  Obviously it requires a number of volunteers to run a league of this size. We need volunteers for coaches, team moms and dads, game day coordinators, practice night coordinators, board members, and registration support.  Please let us know if you are willing to volunteer!
