Travel Teams for 3rd - 6th Graders - This program is designed for the more developed basketball players, from a skills perspective, who can commit to more games and practice time than just what the rec program offers.  Players can expect practicing and/or playing games up to 4 days per week (rec and travel combined) through April.  Travel teams play a variety of teams throughout the seacoast, northern Massachusetts, and southern Maine. Please express interest in the travel program at time of recreation registration. Teams are selected following the close of recreation registration.  The season fee is estimated at $150.00 and is NOT collected until teams are selected.  All players selected for the travel team MUST register and play for the recreation program.  Should there be a need tryouts will be schedule December

ATTENTION ALL PARENTS: VOLUNTEER COACHES NEEDED!

PLEASE SIGN UP TO COACH WHEN YOU REGISTER YOUR CHILD TO PLAY.  We will provide instruction and weekly lesson plans.  No basketball experience is necessary – just a desire to spend quality time with your child. There will be a training for all volunteer coaches and mandatory background screening. This training will focus on coaching fundamentals and philosophy as well as provide guidance for creating and running practices and games.
