2020 December Basketball

This program is currently unavailable. Click here to view all of our current programs.

Right now winter sports leagues are on hold,  but that doesn't mean that a modified basketball program can't be offered.

Participants in our December Basketball program will be grouped in cohorts of ten (10) participants for the entire program.  There will be no mixing of cohorts.  Each cohort can run contact practices with scrimmaging allowed strictly within their cohort.  Each cohort will be assigned a coach (or coaches) and practice 1 to 2 days a week for the month of December.  There will be a minimum of 3 practices. 

Cohorts will be restricted to their 10 participants ONLY, for the entire session.  There will be no mixing of cohorts or scrimmages against other cohorts/towns/teams.
