The sport of basketball will start with practice at the end of October and conclude with a tournament in December. Basketball is available generally to students in grades 6-8, although leagues exist for students in other grades. The girls basketball season runs from mid-October through tournament play in December while the boys teams begin their season in January and conclude with tournament play in March.
MAC basketball programs are a competitive level of play and students are selected after a try-out. MAC teams may consist of 6th, 7th and 8th grade students only. MAC information is available through Dowling Catholic.
