Future Stars & Tiny Hot Shots Basketball Leagues

Future Stars (ages 4 to 6) and Tiny Hot Shots (ages 7-8 boys and 7-9 girls) have a different program than our traditional league model. These programs are only held on the weekend dates for our Ft. Myers and Naples Divisions. These age groups do not have a weekday practice. The kids will have 75-90 minutes just on the weekend game date. They will practice as teams and then have a scheduled game. We accept a maximum of 36 players in each of the Future Stars and Tiny Hot Shot age groups.

Which Age Group Should you Put your Child?

We use a child’s age as a barometer, not a decision maker. Each child matures differently and some kids start playing sports at earlier age than others. For example, an inexperienced 9 year old may choose to participate in our 7-9 Tiny Hot Shots division, while a more experienced 9 year old may want to play in the Mini Hot Shot Division of 9 to 11 year old’s. Similarly, an 11 year old child that is relatively new to basketball, may want to choose the 9 to 11 Mini Hot Shot division, while a very experienced 11 year old may want to participate in the 11 to 13 Little Hot Shot Division.
