The Santa Fe Youth Independent Basketball Program is a well-balanced activities program which provides the opportunity for physical, social and emotional development complementing intellectual growth. Participation in our basketball league is open to all students regardless of sex, race, or creed and teaches that it is a privilege and an honor to represent one’s district, one’s team and oneself. Elementary school sport activities constitute a part of the right kind of “growing up” experiences for students. Participants learn to accept success and failures, gain poise and confidence, achieve tolerance and understanding of others and gain the self-satisfaction of accomplishing goals. Under a well administered program, players and spectators can become better citizens through participation and observation of activities conducted under established rules. With the support of member schools, family members and Coaches, we hope to maintain the appropriate balance between the academic and activities for our children.
