Welcome to the Evolution! Players register as individuals and participate in our pre-season skills combine. After an evaluation process, players are drafted onto teams and play a six-game season that concludes with a post-season tournament. Our leagues are designed to give players a memorable experience beyond just the games and practices. We have a robust website that provides stats, standings, player interviews and more. For older players, we hold an in-season 3pt shooting contest. For younger players, we offer free skills clinics throughout the season. Most games and practices are on Saturdays between 10am-4pm. A few games for older divisions could be played on Friday evenings. Guaranteed playing time for all players. Coaches are Evolution staff & qualified volunteers. Players receive a league shirt and season ending awards. *Beginner 7th graders are welcome but they cannot be playing for their school team.

LEAGUE DRAFT DAY (at Berkshire MS)
To participate in the league, all players must be evaluated at the 2023 Evolution Draft Day. This is a mandatory event where players will be evaluated and placed onto teams. Players will participate in various drills and then scrimmage in front of coaches. Draft times will include a parent meeting where league policies and procedures will be discussed. Players should wear either a black or white shirt to the draft. For grades 5-6, we encourage players to attend both days but one will suffice.
