A Long Middle School student shoots a jumper over a Fanning Middle School defender during a tough and competitive game.Thanks to a partnership with the St. Louis Rams, ASAP after school progams in St. Louis Public Schools are getting the opportunity to show off how they ball in a competitive and fun environment.

The district-wide SLPS/DCSPORTS Middle School Basketball League provides students the chance to play competitive games against other students.

Student basketball players and cheerleaders who earn acceptable grades also are given school uniforms, which are provided by the Rams. The teams are coached by after school site directors who teach fundamentals of the game as well as teamwork, dedication, and hard work. More so, all student-athletes who make the grade in the classroom get the opportunity to play or cheer!

The league ends in early March, but there is still plenty of competitive games left between the after school programs.

Stay tuned for more photo galleries of this exciting league!
