We have revamped the Youth Basketball League!!!.
The program will focus on skills, fundamentals and game play. Players will be grouped into teams within grade-appropriate brackets based on registrations. We will be using certified professional referees. This is basketball program for Avon boys and girls. Volunteer coaches and assistant coaches are needed Rules are designed for participation and clinical skill development for all involved. This is not a practice league and players must be able to commit to a one-hour practice one night a week, plus a game on Saturday.
Players will be evaluated in a non-competitive, rating session in order to form balanced teams.
Once the teams have been determined, the Game schedule will be posted online at www.avonrec.com and updated as needed with make-up dates. Make-up dates if needed will be 3/9/19 and 3/16/19.
The mandatory rating session for 3rd graders only will be held at Pine Grove School on Tuesday, October 23 on the following schedule:
