Congratulations to our Spring 2024 Champions

BGCAZ Athletics' Jr. Suns basketball program is a K-8 CoEd 3-v-3 league that focuses on player development and, more importantly, FUN! Players and coaches will meet an hour before their game for practice and then will roll right into their games. All practices and games take place on Saturdays during the 9-week season. Games are half-court basketball style.

The first two weeks of the season will be 1.5-hour practices, followed by 5 weeks of one-hour practice plus one game. Then, the final two weeks are playoffs - no practice!

Each athlete will be provided with a Jr. Suns jersey and shorts, a Suns gift item, and one ticket to a Suns home game. Parents will need to commute their athletes to one of four sites, selected during registration. Locations can be reviewed here.

The champions of each site will meet for the Final Four Games in week 9.
