Winter League Information

The PSA Basketball Program is the largest basketball program in the Metroplex, with over 20,000 kids participating in our leagues each year.  We offer players programs for every level of basketball from recreational to competitive in grades Kindergarten to 12th.  Along with our league play, we offer School Ball Try-out Prep Program, Skills Academies, Clinics, Camps, 3 on 3 and regular Tournaments throughout the year.  PSA also offers Adult Basketball Leagues for men and women, in addition to our Youth Leagues, making us your one stop shopping for basketball.  PSA is worth the drive!  More Leagues with better competition, we have teams from all over the metroplex.  More places to practice, PSA Plano Area, PSA Murphy & PSA McKinney has 38 courts, gym space in PISD (Plano) and FISD (Frisco and Frisco/McKinney border).  All games are in our facilities and we use schools as well as our facilities for practices.

PSA is very excited about our newest location in McKinney.  We now will be able to offer McKinney and the surrounding area, a closer place to hold practices and games.  We look forward to having a great program in our PSA McKinney Facility!

  • Individuals Registration:  Individual registration fees include a half court practice.  Individuals may not make any practice requests. Coaches make requests for day, time and location of practices.  Coaches requests are unknown when teams are formed therefore it is not possible to match up individuals with teams based on practices.
  • Uniforms are not included in the registration fee.
  • Returning Team Players should contact their coach before registering. This will prevent paying the wrong amount or duplicate payments.
  • Individuals requesting a particular division will not be granted due to the space available on teams.  When all existing teams are full then new teams are formed.
  • Individual players may only play on one team per grade (McKinney, Murphy, Plano). They may play in the grade they are currently in and up a grade, but not on two teams in the same grade.  Does not matter if the teams are in different divisions or locations.
  • A team is full if they have 10 players paid or the team fee is paid in full
  • K-2nd Grade are only allowed a half court or no practice option.  3rd Gr and up has the option to choose no/half/full court practice.
  • Register your teams early with a 10 player roster for an exciting winter season.  Your team will be an “open” team when your roster is under 10 players with a balance for individual players with no team, will be allowed to join your team.  When your team is paid in full it will be “closed”.

  • We will try to fill all rosters to 10 players when players are available.  We cannot guarantee to have players available. If players are not available PSA is responsible for the remaining team fee (if the team is made up of all players from individual registration) or we may combine teams.

  • Please DO NOT register a team if you have less than 7 players on your team.  Register in individual registration.

COACHES INFORMATION

 

No Practice Teams

Teams that register for no practice do not have a practice assigned or players added by PSA. All no practice teams are responsible for paying the full team fee.

 

½ Court Practice Teams

Teams that choose ½ court practice option will be given ½ of a basketball court for practice.

 

Full Court Practice Teams

Teams that choose the full court option will be given a full basketball court for practice.  *Teams must be paid in full in order to be put on the game schedule*

 

Requesting Practice Times

Coaches put their requests for day, time and location into our coaches tool and are assigned practices.  Generally our youngest teams practice at our earliest times.  We start assigning teams at 6pm and the last practices start at 9pm.  Teams that want to practice earlier than 6pm usually get their request no matter what their grade.  

 

  • Teams Choices for Practices

o   Any of PSA’s 4 Facilities:  PSA 1, PSA 2, PSA Murphy, PSA McKinney

o   PISD Elementary Schools or FISD Elementary Schools

 

  • Days and Times for Practices

Filling Rosters

PSA does add players to the teams that are practicing with us as needed.  We fill teams up to 10 only, unless we receive a special request by a coach for more.  If teams pay the full team fee we do not add to their teams.  All teams must be paid in full or ask PSA to fill the team in order to be put on the game schedule.  Teams that do not want PSA to add players are responsible for the total team fee.

 

When registration is over, all unpaid players will be removed from teams that we are adding players to, before adding the new players to the team.  No players may be unpaid on a team unless the team fee is paid in full by the coach.
