*Basketball will be run by the City of Statesville Parks & Rec Dept. All schools will be part of a Hub that is affiliated with its high school.
*Sharon is part of the West Hub, made up of Celeste, Scotts & Sharon with Celeste being the Captain.
*Sharon will still have its own basketball program. Practices will be at Sharon, students will wear Sharon uniforms, and play with Sharon students. The only exception would be if Sharon does not have enough to make a team or the team does not have someone volunteer to Coach.
Basketball Cost is $95 per player. Paid online through the Celeste link. (There is a $5 convenience fee making the total $100. 32)
*This fee is the same for every school.
*This fee is higher than what Sharon usually charges. However, admission is FREE TO ALL GAMES. Last season, the cost was $5 per adult, per game. With 8-10 games, that was a significant cost.
