The Basketball Program consists of four levels of competition: eighth grade, ninth grade, junior varsity, and varsity. Archbishop Shaw’s basketball program competes in District 9 Class 5A, which is known as the Catholic League. The Catholic League is made up of the following schools: Archbishop Shaw, St. Augustine, Jesuit, Brother Martin, Archbishop Rummel, Holy Cross, and John Curtis.
Varsity and junior varsity basketball begin with conditioning and weight training in the fall. The official beginning of practice is determined by LHSAA regulations. Currently, that is the second Monday in October. Junior High tryouts will take place in the Fall. Varsity and junior varsity seasons begin in late November and run through late February. Team members are expected to attend all practices/games during the holiday seasons. Eighth- and 9th-grade teams begin in late November. Summer League/Team Camps run from the end of May through the month of June.
Players must earn a spot on the team (all levels) through a rigorous tryout process.
