Highlands Basketball

Highlands School is a founding member of the Birmingham Regional Independent Athletic Association (BRIAA) League. BRIAA's mission is to provide the opportunity for children to participate in a competitive basketball league that is built upon the principles of superior sportsmanship and character.
Highlands School's goal is to create a positive basketball experience for the players by placing an emphasis on fair play and creating an atmosphere of respect for coaches, players, and officials. It is the goal of this league to establish principles that will encourage players to have the desire to develop their basketball skills in years to come for later school competition and for them to consider basketball as a long-term part of their wellness lifestyle.
Registration and participation in this league is open to all Highlands students in 4K through the 6th grade. Please remember, a student's registration is a commitment to coaches, teammates, and the school. Please plan for your child to attend at least one practice per week and the majority of the Saturday games.
