South Loudoun Basketball

This will be a different season.  We want to make this work so we can safely bring basketball to the youth of Dulles South.  Participation will require face coverings, modifications to the practices and games, and cooperation across the board.  Please review the COVID-19 plans to ensure you agree to abide by all of the restrictions in the plans to allow us to have this season.  Our team of volunteers have been working hard to make this happen, and we need your cooperation!

High School House (Grades 9-12):
