REC "IN HOUSE" BASKETBALL PROGRAM 2023-24

Sign up for the Rec Basketball, Age 3 through 6th grade at the town office or online

Rec "In House" Season normally starts for 1st-6th grade the first week of November with just practices all month.  In December the teams have 1 weekly practice and 1-2 Saturday games

Rec Bball program, is a program of equal opportunity, everyone makes a team, and equal play time for all players.  This is the program where the children really learn and hone in on the basic fundamentals and skills of the game of basketball 

Each season we have approximately 8-10 teams/groups participating on the Rec teams, with approx 150+ children.

Practice & Game times are all still tentative until we know how many players & how many teams we will have.   Typically 4-6th rec is Mon or Wed, 2/3 rec is Tues, with 1st grade Saturday only.

Age 3 - Kindergarten don't start until January and are Saturdays only - typically in the mornings from 8-9am

**Must be pre-registered before attending any evaluations / tryouts / practices

4th through 6th Grade –  Bringing back ALL girls teams!  

Providing we have at least 8 girls 8 girls in 4-6th.  We will try to have an all

girls team.  This does have it's advantages & disadvantages though.  This format does allow the girls to practice & play together, get better as a whole, but after last year playing other rec girls teams we found that playing games against our rec boys teams was a better learning experience, and better challenge. 

We have done this in the past and it has worked well, even if it needs tweaking each season.  I am hearing the girls would rather have their own team so let's try to bring this back, but we will NEED girls to play.

Player Evaluation Dates for 2-6th grade, 2023-24 will be the first week of NOV.

                   Wed Nov 1, 4-6th boys from 6-7pm & 4-6th girls from 7:15-8:15
