Player Readiness
While it is the desire of Pacer Youth Basketball to have as many players in the program as possible, only players who are deemed ready to participate in TRL-level competitive basketball at grade level (as determined at tryouts) will be placed on a team. 

Pacer Youth Basketball and LHS basketball staff have developed the following guidelines to evaluate player readiness:

* Maturity to participate in competitive basketball
* Experience on a basketball team
* Knowledge of basic rules and terminology
* Ability to dribble to the basket and shoot strong hand layups
* Ability to dribble with strong hand and pivot to protect ball from opponents
* Ability to hit the rim consistently on shots from free throw line and closer
* Ability to make and catch chest passes from 10-15 feet
* Understanding of basic defensive positioning (staying between basket and opponent)

What does "Competitive" mean in Pacer Youth Basketball? 

• No guarantee to be selected for a team
• Score and standings are kept
• Play by Oregon high school rules
• Basketball rules are enforced (traveling, fouls, etc.)
• Higher standards for behavior than recreational programs
• Winning is not essential, but competing is
• Attendance is expected at all practices and games; players are expected to consider Pacer Youth Basketball their primary winter sports activity
