Mid-Cities Basketball Association
Each prospective head coach selects practice sessions for their team on a “first come, first served” basis.
Request will be sent in by email and if all requirements were followed,
practices are scheduled based on earliest date/time of the email.
Head coaches can make their choices AFTER completing coaching application.
Coaches must READ this entire page and email their request to reserve practices days.
- Please consider the following.
For teams in grade 1st through 4th grade, click here Practices Grades: 1 to 4 to VIEW the currently available choices.
- Each team has two 75 minute practices per week, Monday through Friday only.
- Your choices are limited to most (but not all) of the HEB ISD elementary schools.
Also some are used for after-school activities, YMCA basketball, and other special needs.
- Some schools are more popular than others. The earlier you sign up, the better your chances. Some schools fill out early and others never fill out. Players and coaches are not spread out evenly in the area.
- If you prefer full court practice, avoid selecting the very popular Tuesday and Thursday for practices.
Coaches must choose one end of the gym and share the gym with another team.
Consequently on Tuesday and Thursday, it's unlikely you receive a full court gym session.
- Planned school holidays or activities tend to be on Mondays and Fridays, causing a "short week" and a modification of affected practices.
Note: Because of school holiday, coaches selecting a Monday practice will not have practice on two Mondays: Jan. 18th and Feb. 15th.
A replacement practice will be scheduled on another day giving the coach a second practice in the week. However, the association cannot guarantee that the replacement day and school are convenient for all.
- Wednesday practices tend to be unpopular. As such, coaches "rewarded" when selecting a Wednesday practice by generally have the full gym that night.
Exceptions occur if a school should have a special event in their gym or in a "short week" (weeks of Jan. 18th and Feb. 15th).
For teams in grade 5th through 8th grade, click here Practices Grades: 5 to 8 to VIEW the currently available choices.
Please note: Coaches may ONLY select practices from the schedule for their team's grade level. The ONLY exception is for a HEAD coach for two teams.
Email your request to VP-Operations@mcbba.org.
Be sure to include your league, team name, and requested location, and which TWO days of week you prefer.
