Announcing 5th grade Basketball!!

We at New Prairie United School Corporation are proud to announce that we will be having boys basketball this fall.   Practices for boys basketball will be starting the week of October 17th

We are planning on having games begin the week of November 7th, 2016.  The regular season will go until December 9th, with the tournament being played the week of December 12th.  The tournament final will be played on December 17th, at the High School Gym.  Information packets will go home the week prior to practice.

Most games will be played at one of the three elementary schools, so busing will not be provided when the games are played at those locations.  In the event that we play a game at another school outside of New Prairie United School Corporation, then busing will be provided.

We are still actively searching for coaches, if you are interested please go to the New Prairie United School Corporation website and apply using the applitrack system.  This is a paid position, anyone with questions about the stipend please email Dr. White directly.
