Boys' Basketball

  • Welcome to Raider Boys' Basketball

    This winter, Scarsdale High School will sponsor five Boys' Basketball teams:
    • Varsity is for the basketball players who demonstrate the strongest skills and abilities, regardless of grade-level.
    • JV A is designed for freshmen, sophomores, and juniors to develop their skills and capabilities to give them the best chance to move up to the Varsity level.  This team's schedule mirrors the Varsity team.
    • JV B is designed for freshmen, sophomores, and juniors that are taking the next steps to make the Varsity program.
    • Freshman (2 teams) are also designed to allow players to develop their skills and capabilities.

    Players are expected to be present at all tryout sessions.  Missing sessions will be incorporated into the coach's evaluation of players for the Varsity team.
     
    Tryouts consist of assessments of individual basketball skills.  Players will be evaluated on offensive skill level, defensive skill level, teamwork, selflessness and work etchic.
     
    The coaching staff also tests the athletes for general athleticism.  
     
    Players are also evaluated on their cooperation with other players and their ability to take direction from the coaching staff.

  • Regular Season

    Basketball is a commitment of about 2 hours per day, 6 days a week with occasional Saturday games and competitions.  It is our expectation that athletes will be present for all team tryouts, scrimmages, practices, games, and tournaments. 

     

    The regular season ends in February for all teams. 

     

    Varsity is then eligible for post-season play.
