BRIAA Basketball and Hilltop Montessori School

Hilltop Montessori School is super excited to partner with BRIAA (The Birmingham Regional Independent Athletic Association) for Season 19-20 of basketball. Our BRIAA cross country has been a great experience for the students and we hope basketball with be just as rewarding.

Because this is our first year, we need to assess that we have enough players to have teams at every level, then we will be identifying interested parents that can help coach. Unlike cross country, the cost and time is more extensive. Practices will be set by the coaches and attending practice is important, as well as coming on game days. The games are already scheduled for December 7, 14, 21st, January 11, 18, 25 and February 1. There will also be a tournament February 3-8th. Games will be held all over Birmingham at various schools and the cost involved is still to be set but will include a jersey and team fees as referees are involved at the older ages.

BRIAA offers this choice for current HMS students from age 4 through 6th grade. Ages 4 through 2nd grade are coed but for the older ages (3-6th grade), there are boys and girls divisions. Obviously, if there isn’t enough interest at a certain age level, we can’t have a team so it is important we first get a strong number of the students who will participate so we can make sure we have enough interest.

If you and your child wish to participate, please let us know at hms@hilltopmontessori.com and if you are interested in coaching or helping, we would love to hear from you as well. PLEASE LET US KNOW IF YOUR CHILD IS LIKELY PARTICIPATING BY OCTOBER 11TH.
