Boys Select Programs

Koa Maryland & Washington, DC Kids Select Basketball

Select Basketball is the highest level of Koa basketball. Rising Star/Select provides players the opportunity to play at a higher level, find camaraderie, perform through adversity, learn teamwork and to respect opponents on and off the court. For players in the younger age groups expect an emphasis on skills and team building while keeping it fun.  As the players approach high school, expectations rise for increased focus and performance.  The program is ideal for players looking to try out for their middle school and high school JV teams. As players progress in age and skill level, teams gel, on and off-court friendships form, and meaningful basketball memories are made.

Koa‚Äôs Select Rising Star Basketball program is intended for serious 4th-8th grade players. Select Basketball must be players‚Äô primary athletic commitment for the season. ¬†Interested athletes must attend tryouts. ¬†All players will receive equal attention during practices and playing time is merit-based. Teams will have starters and bench players. ¬†There may be more than one team in an age group. ¬†Koa’s¬†professional coaches handle all the practices and games. Koa offers two opportunities to play Select basketball: a 4-month winter season and a 2.5-month spring season. ¬†In the winter season, players attend two 1.5 hour practices each week and play a pre-season tournament, a 10-game regular season and single elimination playoffs. In the spring season, players attend one 1.5 hour practice each week and play approximately 8 games and a single elimination post-season tournament. Each team has a ‚ÄúHead Coach‚Äù that attends games and practices. ¬†Coaches (and you and your athlete) are aided by our full-time staff, including Koa‚Äôs Director of Basketball, who handles gym assignments, scheduling, uniforms, equipment, practice plans and more.
