    Basketball

    Every year, more than 150 student athletes participate in programs offered by the St. Peter Basketball organization. The program includes clinics, intramural teams, travel teams, All Star Day, Foul Shooting contest, 8th grade send-off night and a beautiful end of year banquet celebration.

    We welcome volunteers to help continue a long tradition of basketball education and sportsmanship for our youth. Many St. Peter basketball alumni return every year to help coach intramural games and instruct the young children at our clinic.

    * Reminder – Every athlete in 6th to 8th grade must have a current physical to participate in the basketball programs, travel and intramural.
