Develop your basketball skills while you become a team player in this recreation league program. Participants will be placed on a team and will be coached by volunteers. Recreation Basketball focuses on learning the game of basketball and equal playing time for all participants. Recreation leagues are determined by the participant's current grade and are not able to play in a higher grade.
Teams practice on a weeknight (one night Monday through Friday) with games on Saturdays and possibly a few Sundays. Game begin in early January. Teams will play several away games at surrounding towns.
There are no requests for team placement or practice night. Players cannot be transferred once drafted to a team

VOLUNTEER COACHES NEEDED
The Boys and Girls Recreation Basketball Leagues cannot begin until we have volunteer coaches for all the teams in that league. Extensive basketball knowledge/playing experience are not required. We look for coaches who will provide a safe, fun and educational experience while setting nothing less than the best example for players. All coaches must submit to a background check and attend the pre-season coaches meeting.
