Youths playing basketball in a gym.
Once again, Avon Recreation and Parks is partnering with neighboring Farmington Valley towns for our Boys and Girls grades 2 – 8 league to expand the size, competition, and network of our league.    The program will focus on skills, fundamentals, and gameplay.  Players will be grouped into teams within grade-appropriate brackets based on registrations.  Rules are designed for participation and clinical skill development for all involved.  We will be using certified professional referees for our games.
 
Fee: $135.00
*There will be a $15 discount for the 3rd and 4th child enrolled in any of our basketball programs.  Please call the office to receive your discount.
 
Practices: Weeknights starting 11/27/23. No practices will be held during Winter Vacation (Dec. 22 – Jan. 1).
 
Games: Saturdays 12/9/23 – 3/2/24 (No games on 12/23, 12/30, or 2/17; No home games on 1/13). Dates are subject to change.
 
Schedule: Once the rating sessions have been completed and the teams are determined (no earlier than November 13th), coaches will reach out regarding the team’s practice schedule, and a game schedule will be posted online at www.avonrec.com, and updated as needed with make-up dates, if applicable.

Commitment:
This is not a practice league.  Players in grades 2 – 8 MUST be able to commit to a one-hour practice, 1-2 nights/week plus a game on Saturday. Limited availability to practice may impact your child’s ability to participate. Please ensure that you have correctly indicated your child’s availability at registration.
 
Teams:
Please note that we do not accept requests to have your child paired with a specific coach or another player. Teams will be created based on availability to practice, grade, and rating.
 
Mandatory Rating Sessions:
Players in grades 3 – 8 will be evaluated in non-competitive, rating sessions in order to form balanced teams.  Players should wear sneakers.  Basketballs will be provided.
