Attention girls’ basketball players in current grades 6th-11th: Varsity coaches Heather Highshoe and Darius Liggett are expanding their summer program into a spring AAU circuit program, called NorCal Press.

The program will run April through June. This is a great opportunity to get exposure to what the high school program is about, play with potential teammates, as well as play and learn from the DHS coaching staff.
