Start a Youth Team

Get in touch to start your own youth team!

We are now gathering information from interested parents and organizations who wish to form or sponsor a 5’9″ Max basketball team.  Complete the contact form on this page to receive information and updates as we move forward.  5’9″ Max will help you organize with others in your area to get tournament or league play started as soon as possible.  All teams must be certified by 5’9″ Max to play other teams in the association, which includes adherence to 5’9″ Max regulations and the 5’9″ Max Code of Conduct.

5’9″ Max Code of Conduct

  • I promise to play my best, and to try every day to get better.
  • I promise to play fair.
  • I promise to play as a team, to be a valuable teammate, and to trust my team.
  • I promise to abstain from alcohol and illegal drugs and chemicals, which completely destroy my ability to play excellent basketball. (dare we borrow a phrase?  “Clear Eyes, Full Heart . . . Can’t Lose!”)
  • I promise to represent my team and my 5’9″ Max team with pride and dignity.
  • I promise to focus on my studies and do well in school, after all at my height a basketball scholarship is highly unlikely — just being honest with myself.
  • I promise to respect the game of basketball at all times, which includes respecting every player on the court.


Youth Basketball Update, September 2012:

Currently 5’9″ Max is working with youth organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area to begin our first youth basketball season.  If you have an existing basketball team in another league and you are looking for sponsorship, 5’9″ Max may work with its corporate partners to sponsor your team.  We want to hear from you no matter where you are, as we plan to grow into a global phenomenon rather quickly.  Complete the contact form on this page to stay informed about upcoming basketball workshops, trayouts, and teams forming in your area.
