L'Anse Hoops

Thank You for all the help this year!

The Elementary Hoops Basketball Program is comprised of K-6 grade students.  Each grade has two teams (one boy team and one girl team) that are coached by volunteer parents.  All practices are held at the L'Anse Area Schools, but the program is not officially affiliated with the school system.  

The season starts in early January and runs through April.  Children who are in grades 3-6 will travel throughout the UP to various schools for tournaments.  All tourney games are held on the weekends.  Those in grades K-2  only have weekly practices to learn the fundamentals of basketball.
