Owl Creek Basketball Teams for the NWA League


Owl Creek Teams

If your child is on the roster below, please proceed immediately to registration.

If your child did not make the team this year, please know this is not a statement about their basketball future.  We strongly encourage you to find the best possible coach and play on a team at the most competitive level you can find locally.  More than anything else, work on the fundamentals and skills of the game, specifically ball handling, Left/Right handed layups, and shooting. AAO basketball training programs are designed for and attended by all levels of players, not limited to AAO team members.  Consider basketball training classes.  As well, our friends at the Fayetteville Boys & Girls Club provide a fine resource for recreational basketball team participation.  
Here is a link to their website:  
Their basketball director is: or 479-442-9242 ext. 112   

No matter where you find skill development, players who want to improve, commit yourself to working hard over the next year and come out strong for your next tryout!
