Welcome to Basketball!
Thank you for choosing to be a part of the St. Bernard sports program. We offer both in-house and travel teams as well as a clinic for grades K-1.
Our clinic program runs from October and ends in March. The basketball clinic is designed to teach the basic skills of basketball. The focus is on learning fundamentals, including passing, dribbling, shooting and ball handling. There are no games. The clinic sessions are on Saturday mornings from 9:00 am to 10:00 am.
- The clinic is open to boys and girls in Kindergarten and 1st grade.
Our in-house basketball program begins in October and ends in March. Grades 2-4 will play on Saturday and grades 5-8 will play on Tuesday nights. There will be games every week unless otherwise announced (due to holidays and school vacations). Each in-house team will play a full schedule of games, including playoffs and a championship. All games are played at St. Bernard Gymnasium.
- The In-house program is open to boys and girls from the 2nd through the 8th grade.
St. Bernard travel basketball teams participate in the CYO league. The game schedules are dictated by the leagues, not St. Bernard. Home games are played at St. Bernard Gymnasium and away games will be played at other parishes in Brooklyn and Queens. Your child will need to “try out” for the travel team that corresponds with his or her age/grade. Whether your child is invited to join a travel team is at the complete discretion of the travel coach.
- The travel program is open to children from the 3rd through the 8th grade.
If you would like to be a part of the best halftime show in Brooklyn you can register to perform with our Dancing Damsels. It is open to any girls from grades 2-7. The registration cost is $80.00. The Dancing Damsels will practice on Wednesday nights from 6:00 to 8:00 PM.
Please register online
A registration will not be considered complete unless all fees are paid in full.

We have REFORMED our In-House Basketball Program for our 2nd-4th Graders
Realizing the need for a coach solely dedicated to training out younger in-house players, St. Bernard Basketball Program has retained Coach Yinka Ace Ogunlowo of Respect the Game Athletics (RTG). Coach Ace is a player development specialist and mental conditioning consultant who works with youth basketball players to build and maintain confidence. Coach Ace’s goal is to provide a rigorous, competitive, stimulating and innovative training program. The program empowers athletes of all ages to develop a sound work ethic and high moral values. Coach Ace will work exclusively with out in-house players on Saturdays throughout the season! He will focus on both instruction and guidance during out in-house games.
