    Girls High School & Junior High Basketball

    2019-2020 SEASON

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

    We have an 18U team (Varsity), a 14U team (Jr Varsity / 9th grade games), and a 12U team (7th grade MS)

    We compete against area home school teams, private schools, and some public schools throughout the DFW area.  One of our program goals is to schedule a sufficient number of games (20-30) in a season to prepare us for the home school tournament state and national tournaments at the end of our season.

    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).
