Hello Abernethy Families,

We're very happy to announce that we are kicking off the Abernethy K-2 Basketball Program for the 2023/24 season.

This is a unique offering at Abernethy that allows students in grades K-2 a fun, inclusive opportunity to learn basketball in a no pressure environment. This program works in concert with and helps prepare students for the Goldenball and SE Portland Girls Basketball offerings that pick up in 3rd grade.

There is no cost associated with the Abernethy K-2 program, so any child who wants to play will be eligible.

Teams will practice for an hour weekly starting in January, with games picking up in February and March. Our goal is to field two teams in each of the grades, allowing for the opportunity to have games later in the season. All practices and games will take place in the Abernethy Gym.

We need COACHES! If you're willing to help out as a committed season coach or part-time backup coach, please LET US KNOW in the form below. No experience is necessary to coach. We'll provide resources and guidance.

All coaches and backup coaches must have a valid PPS Background Check.

For any questions regarding the program, please reach out to

If you'd like to get your kiddo involved, please fill out this form no later than Friday, December 15th:
