VK Basketball will start practices this spring with our U13 team in April 2019 and will run through the beginning of August. VK Basketball is lucky to have two excellent coaches to lead the teams this summer.
We will have between two and four practice sessions each week to go along with many tournaments, including a national club championship - bballnationals, where VK U13's won in 2018!
