Insurance and parent waiver information may be found on the physical form and must be completed as well.
     
    Although it is not required, coaches do encourage all those interested in playing basketball at North Middle to work on basic skills in the off-season to enhance their playing potential.  There are many local camps that offer basic instruction in basketball fundamentals, as well as local park and recreation sponsored activities which can help in the development of the athlete.
