Multiple Teams · Message from Coach Shelton – Welcome 9th Graders!

Message from Coach Shelton, Boys’ Basketball Head Coach:

I would like to welcome all new 9th Graders to Southwest High School.  I hope that the transition to high school provides a sense of growth, empowerment, and new found optimism.

To the young men of the Southwest community that are considering basketball at the high school level, I want to begin to build an early connection with you.  I am optimistic that high school basketball will be played this year and therefore want to provide an opportunity for our 9th grade prospects to get a feel for what it’s like to compete at this level.

Our program will be competing in the Breakdown USA Fall League during the latter part of October and early November at one of the metro area locations (Hopkins, Bloomington Kennedy, or Bloomington Jefferson).  Games will take place on the following Sundays (10/18, 10/25, 11/1, & 11/8), where there will be 2 games per session.  More detailed information will be made available at a later time.

If you are interested in representing Southwest in the fall league, please complete the following form.  Roster spots will be limited so respond as soon as possible.

I look forward to connecting again soon.  If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me at
