    Girls High School & Junior High Basketball

    Girls Summer Skills Sessions 2019

    This summer we have schedule skills sessions in the summer months for girls starting on Thursday, May 23, 2019 from 7:30pm - 9:30pm at Countryside Bible Church gymnasium, 250 Countryside Court, Southlake, TX, 76092.
    Check the girls' basketball calendar on the THESA Riders website for additional summer dates.

    2019-2020 season

    In our 2018-2019 season, we had a team age 14 and under and a team age 16 and under.

    Starting in the month of September we begin to have tryouts, form our teams, and prepare for the 2019-2020 season. The season runs from November to early March.

    Our tryouts will be Thursday August 29, 2019 and during our  first two team practice dates in the first week of September.

    We expect to have a 14U team (8th grade A team, or 9th grade team) and an 18U team (Varsity). There is an option to form a team that is age 12 and under and age 16 and under if we get enough girls.

    We play teams that are home schooled, TAPPS, and UIL (if they will schedule with us). We aim to schedule a sufficient number of games (20-30) in a season to prepare us for the home school tournaments at the end of our season. We play teams throughout the DFW area.

    Our per player fees in the past have ranged from $300-$450, depending on the need for uniforms and the number of tournaments in which we participate.

    Two home school tournaments are at locations that require overnight stays (State tourney is 3 nights in Round Rock, TX / Nationals is 6 nights in Springfield, MO) and we will participate in one of these two.

    The girls’ basketball calendar events are posted in the THESA Riders website (

    Thanks for considering us. For questions, please contact Rick Ramos (THESA Riders girls’ basketball coach 817-721-2105 cell).


    Cross Country

    Cross Country is designed to fit any skill or interest level for ages 12 (6th grade) - 18 (12th grade).  See the calendar and contact Coach Mc Gill for more information.
