Elementary Basketball FAQ

The Collierville Schools Elementary Basketball League (CSEBL) is a new league dedicated to delivering a competitive experience to our elementary schools.

  • All participants must complete FinalForms (PDF), the district's sports medicine compliance platform.

  • Schools may hold tryouts prior to December 13th, 2023 with the first contest scheduled for Wednesday, January 17, 2024. Games will be played on Wednesdays through the months of January and February. No contest will be held on February 14, 2024. Regular season games will be held at the individual elementary schools.
