Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about our programs!
Practice should begin mid-to-late November, with Games running from December until the first weekend of March. We encourage everyone to come out for travel tryouts, there’s no obligation to play. The more of our players we see the better we can fit our program to their needs.
- Our 1st and 2nd Graders will play on co-ed teams. Practices are usually twice a week in the evenings, with games on Saturday mornings. The games are instructional, coach run, and a fun way to put into practice what they learn during the week. Games are in house against other Saucon 1st/2nd teams, and records are not kept. They play with smaller 27.5″ balls and shoot on lowered 8′ rims.
- 3rd and 4th graders are split into Girl’s and Boy’s divisions. We hope to offer both Travel and Recreational for these levels, we will let player interest and turnout determine where we place our teams this season. Both divisions move up to full sized rims, and 28.5″ balls, but no experience is needed to have a fun, successful season. Recreational teams will play against teams from Saucon, Southern Lehigh, and Salisbury. Travel teams play against other Lehigh Valley schools, the furthest is Northwestern.
- 5th and 6th graders are similarly divided into Boy’s and Girl’s divisions. The number of travel teams we are able to send will depend on player turnout, but we hope to send two teams for both divisions. Both the Girl’s and Boy’s Rec teams had great success last year, and we’re looking to continue the tradition!
- We expect to be able to offer 7th and 8th grade recreational basketball for players who do not play for the Middle School team. Interest level and league availability will determine exactly what this will look like, but let’s make this happen!
CONGRATULATIONS TO THE 5/6 GIRLS AND 7TH GRADE BOYS!
