Once again, Avon Recreation is partnering with neighboring Farmington Valley Towns for this program.
This is not a practice league. Players MUST be able to commit to a one hour practice one night per week plus a game on Saturday.
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.
Once the teams have been determined, the link to the Game schedule will be posted online at www.avonrec.com and updated as needed with make-up dates.
REGISTRATION IS AUGUST 27 - SEPTEMBER 28, 2018. Late registrations are subject to a
$25 late fee (NO EXCEPTIONS!)
and may be accepted beginning September 29, if space allows. Registrations will not be accepted after October 16, 2018.
There is a $15.00 discount for the third or more player in the same family.
August 27 - October 26.......... 100% refund.
October 27 - November 9.......... 80% refund.
If you contact our office after November 9, we cannot issue any refund.
Players will be evaluated in a non-competitive, short session in order to form balanced teams. There will be a mandatory rating session for all participants of this league. Participants must wear sneakers. Basketballs will be provided.
