Sports, Fitness & Recreation
These Club programs help develop fitness, a positive use of leisure time, reduction of stress, appreciation for the environment and social and interpersonal skills.
Our philosophy is to teach basketball fundamentals through drills and balanced competitive games. Before bigger things can be attempted, players must learn and practice the fundamentals of basketball. This groundwork lays the foundation for success.
This league is for grades 3-8. The season will start in November with Drills for Skills clinics at the Boys and Girls Club. During these clinics, each player’s skills are assessed so that balanced teams can be selected based on age and abilities. At the end of the drills sessions, players will scrimmage with their age groups to be evaluated for when we make teams. All teams are drafted by the board not the coaches. We feel this helps in making the teams as even as possible. The season starts with two weeks of practices and then games start the week before Christmas. Each team plays 9-10 regular season games depending on the division. Games are either once or twice a week with playoffs starting in March.
The Instructional program for 1st and 2nd graders begins in January and runs for 8-10 weeks on Saturday mornings. This is a learn to play/skill building program where players learn the basics of the game and ramp up to organized scrimmages.
Our travel program is for competitive and serious players only. We have teams at each grade level who play in the South Shore Youth Basketball Travel League. Your child must tryout in order to make one of these teams. Tryouts are mid October.
