      Description:

      Typical End Date:

      The Boys' 7/8 Basketball Championship Tournament takes place during the first or second week of December, prior to Winter Break.  Unless a team signs up for an outside tournament, that is the end of their season.  The Boys' 5/6 Team ends their season with the last game unless they play in the Annual Charger Classic held for the 5/6 teams in the 20 K-6 schools.

      The seven K-8 Schools participate in hosting each other and playing away at each others schools for a total of 12 regular season games.  (Exceptions- Abraham Lincoln and Sweetwater do not have indoor gyms, so they play their home games at other facilities.)  

      At the end of the season the 7/8 grade teams at the seven schools are seeded into a District Tournament to play for the K-8 Championship.  The 5/6 Teams at the K-8 schools have the option to play in the Charger Classic with the other 20 K-6 School teams.
