REC "IN HOUSE" BASKETBALL PROGRAM 2017-18- 

Sign up & deadline for the Rec Basketball teams is Oct 3-27, 2017  after deadline dates a $10 late fee will be applied.

 PreK-1st grade registrations still accepted through Dec 15, 2017 since they start after the holiday season.

Season starts Saturday Nov 4, 2017 for grades 2-6th, and runs through Feb 10, 2017 for the rec teams,   

The 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 the basic fundamentals of basketball 

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

 

TRAVEL BASKETBALL / A MORE COMPETITIVE PROGRAM

 

***LOCAL RULE; TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR A TRAVEL TEAM; PLAYERS MUST BE PLAYING ON A REC TEAM OR A SCHOOL TEAM

 

Registration for this program is Oct 3-20, 2017 

Our local rule for registration; late registrants for this program are only accepted if we cannot fill a team.

MUST BE PRE-REGISTERED before tryouts, registrations are NOT accepted the night of tryouts.

 

This is a more competitive program, Eastern Maine Travel league.  It is for grades 3-8th grade.  Each team will carry a minimum of 8 but maximum of 12 players, if more than 12 per group than cuts will be made. Each level has different rules to govern the games.  It should also be understood that none of the divisions in the travel program have an equal play rule. 

The league provides opportunity for 3/4 boys, 3/4 girls, 5/6 boys, 5/6 girls, 7/8 girls, 7/8 boys there are options if we do not have enough for a team in a particular division.  Girls can play on boys teams, players can play up a level - but never down, and this is all based on the number of registrants per division.  There is also the option of working with the league administrators to see if there are other nearby towns who are short on players and combining.  Bottom line if you want more than just Rec Basketball, are interested in competitive basketball playing other towns & post season tournaments, you WANT to tryout.  This is a great program, with some great games!

For the 2016-17 season we had team(s) for each division; 3-4 girls, 3/4 boys, 5-6th girls, 5-6 boys, 7-8 girls & 7-8 boys.  However, there is concern that we won't have enough players for some of the groups this year, we hope to fill all our teams each year to give the players the best experience possible at the right age group.
