Girls Basketball - Grades 4-8
Girls-only basketball (i.e., not co-ed) is available for girls in grades 4 through 8.
The JV girls' teams participate in a Southtowns league that usually starts in November and ends in March. JV teams are made up of 4th, 5th and 6th graders. The season consists of 10 - 12 regular season games, plus playoffs. Practices are generally twice per week at the coach's discretion. There are several tournament opportunities available at the coach's discretion. Parental volunteers for scoreboard operation at home games is requested. Depending on the league that the JV team enters, JV games might consist of a full game where the more experienced 5th graders and 6th graders from both teams play against each other. A separate game might be played involving both team's 4th graders and the
less-experienced 5th graders (JJV). Such games are generally played back-to-back at the same venue.
The Varsity girls' team(s) participate in a Diocesan basketball league that starts in November and ends in March. This league includes 10 - 12 league games and playoffs. Practices can be 2 - 3 time per week at the
coach's discretion. The varsity girls may also participate in tournaments throughout the year. QOH encourages teams to participate in as many High School-sponsored tournaments as possible so that the girls can visit many aread Catholic High Schools. The team is eligible to qualify for the Diocesan playoff tournament if they finish high enough in the standings. Parental volunteers for scoreboard operation at home games is requested.
There is a cutoff date for submitting Permission Forms, especially for basketball players, which was instituted several years ago because of the late number of signups in previous years. The School needs to know how many players are interested, so we can assign teams, identify coaches, have enough uniforms ready for all players and register with the different leagues. If your permission form is received after the cutoff date, your child will be put on a waiting list and will only be added to a team if there is room.
Please see the QOH Athletics Home page for information about Permission Slips, registration fees, uniform deposits and deadlines to submit all forms/fees.
