High Rise also offers the option to pay by check. The event registration page will have pay-by- check instructions. We may also be able to accomodate other payment methods if this does not work for you. If this is the case, please contact Bobby Spezzano via e-mail at Bobby@HighRiseBasketball.com or by phone at (203)-496- 0462.
can i sign up for individual days of camp?
No, we do not allow you to pick individual days to come to camp for planning purposes. For some events outside of summer camp this may be allowed, and if so, the option will usually be present on the registration page.
for co-ed events, are the boys and girls separated
If we have large enough groups of girls (around 3+ that feel more comfortable being seperated), we will usually seperate groups. We want to encourage both boys and girls to attend most of our events and it is our goal to make sure they have a positive, rewarding, and fun experience so we do everything in our power to make sure this happens. The same goes for age groups.
does high rise offer private lessons?
Yes, our staff is willing and able to accomodate mostly any training experience you desire. Please see our "Training" page for more info.
