Question: What size basketball will our son use?
Answer: Grades 3 and 4 use a 27.5 ball. Grades 5 and 6 use a 28.5 ball. 7th grade and older use a full-size basketball (typically full size basketballs do not show the size on them, but are 29.5).
Question: Does my son need to buy a basketball?
Answer: No, your coach will bring balls to practices and games. However, it's a great idea to have you own basketball for dribbling/shooting on your own. If you bring it to practice, make sure it is marked with your name!
