This season will be an in-house, Strafford residents only program. Our goal will be to start the week of January 18 and run through March 26. Registration is officially closed. We ask for patience and flexibility as we finalize gym availability and COVID restrictions as we put together teams and schedules. Pinnies or t-shirts for players may be issued after the season starts. Teams will be based on school established cohorts as best as possible dependent upon the number of registrations.
The Kindergarten program will run once a week at a day/time yet to be determined. Players will use smaller-sized basketballs and play on a (rim) height appropriate to their ability levels. The focus is strictly on skill development, learning self-control, and having fun.
First and second grade will practice once a week on a day/time yet to be determined. Players will use women's-sized balls and play on a (rim) height appropriate to their ability levels. The focus remains primarily on skill development and basic fundamentals all the while learning self-control and having fun.
Third- through eighth-grade teams will practice during the week focusing on skills and drills. As the season progresses there is a possibility of scrimmages. Players will be required to wear mouth guards and bring a personal water bottle and wear appropriate footwear.
