A: Yes, please click HERE and you'll find an overview.

Q: What's the difference between the Travel and Recreational programs?
A: Travel basketball is for boys and girls in 4th through 8th grade looking to develop higher level basketball skills in a competitive environment. Tryouts are held and not all players are guaranteed a spot on a team.  Games are played against other towns in the area.  Recreational basketball is an in-town league for boys and girls in 1st through 8th grade looking to develop skills in a less competitive environment than travel.  All on-time registrants will be guaranteed a spot on a team and teams will have an “equal playing” time rule.  

Q: What's the difference between Instructional and Games?
A: Instructional focuses on basketball fundamentals and skills. Whereas, Games include practices and real games played against another team.
