Teams are split by grade & gender (Grade 5/6 Girls, Grade 5/6 Boys etc.). These teams will play in the Suburban Basketball League. The league is made up of teams from surrounding towns (Chicopee, Granby, Belchertown, Ludlow, Wilbraham, etc.). The Suburban Basketball League is our competitive league. If your son/daughter is looking for something less competitive we also offer teams in the Quabbin Valley Basketball League (grades 3-8). More information is above pertaining to that league.
Practices will start the beginning/middle of November and will be held 3-4 times a week. Typically two weeknight practices that will remain the same throughout the season, and one weekend practice until games begin. All practices are held in-town. Practice times are determined by the coach of the team the player gets assigned to, and we will not know coaches and/or practice times until the beginning/Middle of November.
Tryouts/Evaluations may be required based on the number of players registered for a team. A decision on whether tryouts/evaluations are needed will not be made until the beginning of November.
