There still is time to register for the youth basketball leagues. Player evaluations start Tuesday, 12/5. Be sure to register by then to participate. An email blast will be sent out to those registered and paid detailing the times and locations of player evaluations. (Please ensure your household account is set up to accept these email notifications from the Parks and Recreation Department.) This information is now posted on our website, monroerec.org.
The Basketball Leagues offered by Parks and Recreation provide an opportunity for boys and girls to become acquainted with the skills and techniques necessary to play the game. Participation, skill development, sportsmanship and fun will be emphasized over competition. All registration is based on grade as follows:
Girls Grade 3 and 4: Monday & Tuesday practices. Thursday games at Fawn Hollow.
Boys Grades 3 and 4: Monday, Wednesday and Friday practices. Saturday games at Fawn Hollow.
Girls Grades 5 through 8: Due to insufficient registration in the past, the girls 5/6 and 7/8 leagues have been combined into one league for girls grades 5-8. If there is sufficient registration, then we will have leagues for grades 5/6 and 7/8. Practices will be held on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday at Chalk Hill, Jockey Hollow or Stepney Elementary. Games will be held Saturday mornings at Chalk Hill or Jockey Hollow.
