Boys and Girls Basketball

St. Mark’s is a member of the Association of Shreveport Private Schools basketball league.  The league sponsors competition between five member schools for teams in 5th through 8th grades.  The girls’ season begins in September and continues through November, while the boys’ season begins in January and continues into March.  A league tournament is held at the conclusion of the regular season, with teams seeded based upon their regular season record.  In general, the teams will use P.E. class once or twice a week to work on fundamentals and will have after school practices twice a week.  Games are normally played weekday evenings.  St. Mark’s has a no-cuts policy with regard to being on our teams.  Playing time is not guaranteed, but every effort is made to allow all members of the team to play in most games.
