“Everyone Plays” philosophy. Every effort will be made to maintain a developmental program that is well balanced, and every eligible child who makes a commitment to attend practices and games on a consistent basis, pays the required fee (scholarships are available) and is a Holy Trinity parishioner, every effort will be made on our part to place them on a team. If the team is oversubscribed then either a second team will be formed or players will be scheduled for a set number of games on a rotating basis and/or extra games and scrimmages will be scheduled so that every player receives meaningful playing time. Minimum playing time guidelines will be observed. Within this team philosophy the coaches and players will strive for personal improvement, excellence, teamwork and winning basketball games.
