The participants at this level are encouraged to strengthen and develop friendships. Most importantly, we all there to have fun! The E division players will be involved in demanding physical activity this year to improve their fitness level.
They will be placed in a game environment where the rules and scoring are adjusted to promote fair and equal court and ball handling time, according to modified ŠALFASS rules, and will do so in front of their parents and friends.

2003-2004 was a shortened season due to a late ŠALFASS the previous year but with two practices per week, our E division squad still showed remarkable enthusiasm and improvement since November. Our returning E players gained confidence and our new players increased their abilities in many areas.

After successful exhibition games versus Anapilis, our Mixed E ŠALFASS team continued their confident ways going undefeated in the tournament resulting in a closely fought Silver Medal in the final game versus Lituanica I from Chicago.
Coach Kris and I are very proud of the achievements made by this group and wish them all the best next year.

The 2002-2003 E's led all the way to win Gold. This team was undefeated in the 2003 ŠALFASS tournament.
ŠALFASS 2003 - E Division Champions - Aušra
The Mixed "E" practices will be conducted in an environment that initially is low in competitiveness and high in fun.
Each participant should receive at minimum a 1˝ hr basketball experience per week. One hour of which will be devoted to skill development and conditioning and one hour devoted to recreational play and life skills. Gym time, previous commitments and coaches schedules will affect specific weeks, however by the end of the season it will all average out.
Aušra first and foremost is a developmental program. All participants will be given the opportunity to maximize their potential. We believe they should receive equal instruction and playing time. We will not impose the adult game on the young participants. Instead, we will modify the game to make the level of play appropriate for all participants.
Some of the goals of Aušra Sports Club are to:
General Rules when at Resurrection Parish - Enter the gym from the parking lot doors on the east side of the building. Please stay off the stage. Wear your basketball shoes on the court only. No Street shoes on the court. Drink plenty of water before practice and be sure to bring an adequate amount to practice.
Exhibition Games - The teams’ involvement in exhibition games will be totally dependant on whether the parents are willing to drive (car pool) and cheer encouragingly at the games. Exhibition Games are a privilege and shall be treated as such.
