Parking on GAME NIGHTS -   On Friday we are at the MAP.  Sometimes the lot gets full.  Therefore, to find exra parking please park on Western East of Lampson or on Anaconda Ave and Lampson.  There are two options for parking at Oak.  You can either park in the community center lot off of Oak Street or the parking lot that is behind City Hall which is off Katella Avenue and Civic Center Drive.  The gym if your looking at the school from Oak Street is to your left.  Just keep walking towards the school past the community center and playground.

Uniforms - They have been ordered and are set to arrive on Opening Night (9/9) right before our first game.  Uniforms will be waiting for the teams at their designated courts.  Coaches will be handing them out.  In the event the uniforms do not arrive we are asking the home team to wear a plain white shirt.  So all home teams come to the game in a plain white shirt.  If you are the visiting team please wear black or navy blue shirt.

For those not familiar with the Alley-Oop website here is some helpful info.

Rules – Alley-Oop leverages the high school rules with some exceptions.  We have those rules posted on the website on the about us drop down.  The link is below:

League Rules

FAQ - Some are not aware that at the time registration opens at the beginning of each season we post a FAQ page for the season that has helpful information about the upcoming season.  I encourage you to review it so you can take a look at the type of information it has so that when the next season rolls around you know what kind of information is at your finger tips. For those that read registration emails the information is virtually the same just in question format.  We like to keep all armed with info!

FAQ – Fall Season 2022

PARENTS -  Remeber please strive to exhibit the best behavior possible!  Coaches Coach, Players Play, and Fans Cheer.  Also please keep in mind no going to the scorekeepers table.  If there is an issue talk to your Coach or go to a Commissioner.

Uniforms - Coaches have been notified.  Players must have the same matching uniforms.  Pleae make sure the teams have uniforms that match.  So please remeber to have your player bring their uniform.

Important Dates and other info -

  • Fall T-Shirts - The coveted league T's are in the design phase.  We got another crowd pleaser in the works.  We will be handing them out towards the end of the season.  We hand them to the coach on a game day and they hand them out to the players.  If your team doesn't play that week we will hand them to the team at their next game.
  • Playoffs/Championship - Start 10/21 and End 10/22 (Playoff schedule comes out on that Wednesday 10/19 (LATE))
  • Playoffs and Championships – The playoffs and championships are 10/21 and 10/22.  Those games are not on the schedule yet.  The schedules for those games come out after the regular season games are complete.  The schedule will be posted on 10/19 by 10pm.  Every team makes the playoffs so save the dates.  Also teams are put in separate divisions based on the performance during the regular season.
  • SAFETY/First AID - Ice and band aids are at the scorers table of court 2/Alley-Oop Court at the MAP and the scorers table at Oak (only 1 court).

Have FUN!!
