What you are as a person is far more important than what you are as a basketball player.

Parent Meeting Reminder - Our annual Parent Meeting will be held tomorrow night (Wed, Oct 1st) from 7:00 - 8:15 pm in the Briarwood Cafeteria. Please try and attend as there will be a lot of great information provided and it will be a chance to get your questions answered.
Rosters - Most rosters have been posted in the Team section of our Liberty Select Website. If you have not yet heard anything regarding your roster tryout, please let us know. Emails were sent based upon your account information on our site.
If you practice with emotion and purpose you’ll play with passion and confidence.
Reminder, tryouts for the 2014/15 season start tomorrow for the boys and Thursday for the girls. If you have not registered online, please do so as soon as possible.

We are announcing a reduced fee structure for our program. We have reduced player fees by $40 for this season and added a new uniform policy (see below). This reduction was accomplished through a focused effort of fundraising and cost reduction throughout the program.
Boys ETL teams are registered and will participate in the Peak Fall league throughout October.
Practices will begin October once a week and will transition to twice a week in November.
New Uniform Policy
This year we are having all players 4th - 8th purchase uniforms (see photo below). It is our intent that the uniforms can be used for multiple seasons and/or be shared or handed down to siblings. We have purposely selected uniforms that have the longest possible shelf life. Third grade players received new uniforms last season and can use them going forward.
Player cost: $60 for the set you see below and they are yours to keep!
Players will be fitted for uniforms at tryouts.
By implementing this program we have eliminated the expense of storage AND replacement of lost or stolen uniforms which costs the program thousands of dollars per year.
Once again this season we will provide, at no additional cost, trainings for all players at Liberty Select. Players in grades up to 6th will be trained by the Liberty High School coaching staff (Boys & Girls) and players in 7th & 8th grade will be trained by Excel. All trainings will be held at Maywood, unless otherwise noted.
October 6, 14, 20 &27 (Note: Oct 14 is a Tuesday)
Grades 3-6 from 6:00-7:15 pm
Grades 7-8 from 7:30-8:45 pm
We are working to extend training with Friends of Hoop through the winter. Look for more details to come!
As a program we take pride that our fee structure is one of the lowest in the area while delivering an outstanding basketball experience. In order to keep our fees low, we need to fundraise as a community. We are putting together the details now - look for more information to come.
If you are interested in volunteering your time to help this cause, please let us know. We can always use the help!
The Liberty Select Basketball program is a competitive program focused on providing future Liberty High School basketball players a fun, constructive and rewarding basketball experience. The Liberty Select Basketball vision includes bringing together competitive players with strong basketball skills to participate in youth basketball at the highest level.
It all starts with the passion and drive of the player:
