Equipment
As part of joining the Junior Grizzlies program, each participant will receive a full-size basketball. Each participant will also receive a NBA replica jersey which includes a shirt and shorts. All other equipment is the responsibility of the participant.

Team Selection Process
This league will follow the Collierville Parks & Recreation Department's team selection process as spelled out in our Policy & Procedures Manual. You can click HERE (coming soon...) to view our Policies and Procedures Manual, under "Team Selection Process". Basically, the Head Coach's son/daughter is placed on the team. The Head Coach can name (1) Assistant Coach, and his/her son/daughter is placed on a team. Everyone else will be drafted onto teams according to our draft grid. Each Head Coach will get the same chance to draft any player that has been through the evaluation process. It is our wish to create team parity through this process.

Click HERE for a sample of our draft grid that we use for all of our sports programs.

Practices can be through the week, after 5:00 pm; Saturdays anytime 9:00 am - 5:00 pm; Sundays anytime 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm.
