   Recreational Youth Basketball
Parks & Recreation
Coaching is more than knowing the game. The ability to teach age appropriate athletic skills
is equally as important as being aware of the needs of the children participating in sports. We accept all coaches willing to dedicate their time to give our young athletes a fun, safe and memorable experience. Volunteer coaches are needed for the Dunkers Basketball Clinic for grades 1–2 and the Youth Basketball League for grades 3–8.
For all new and returning coaches:
● Visit our website
and click on “Coaches.” Follow the steps to get involved! We cannot run these programs without the help of our coaches! Thank you to all who get involved!
Dave Vasquenza from WINS For Life will be offering various coaching clinics throughout the region that coaches can attend (a list will be provided at the coaches meeting). The clinic in Rocky Hill will be offered on Wednesday, December 6 from 6:15–8:45pm.
Mandatory Coaches Meeting for
Grades 3–8:
A league meeting will be held on Monday, November 6 at 6:00pm. Coaches will receive final team rosters, equipment, rules and regulations. Coaches will notify parents/players of team placement/practice details between November 7 and 11.
As a thank you for coaching and the commitment to the players, all volunteer coaches will be issued a $50 credit on their account at the end of the season providing they have completed the season and are in good standing with our department. All coaches also receive a warm-up jacket.
Travel Basketball League
For those wanting a more intense program
that requires travel to area towns, try out for Travel Basketball. Teams available: 4th–8th grade boys and 5th–8th grade girls. Away games can be a 20–60 minute drive. Consistent attendance at practices is expected and
equal playing time is not mandated, but rather determined at the coach’s discretion. For those making the teams, travel basketball will be the primary sport during the season. Players are expected to forego other sports, and attend practices and games in the event of conflicts. There is a fundraising commitment, including the sale of discount cards, plus the cost of
a uniform. Team selection will be based on tryouts in September/October. Each team will likely be limited to 10–12 players. Players not selected for the travel team will be refunded the registration fee and can play in the recreation league. Players cannot play in the travel league and the recreational league at the same time. Fee: See website for fees
    Travel Basketball League – Coaches Needed
Coaches are needed for 4th grade boys, 4th grade girls, and 5th grade girls for the 2023–24 season. If interested, please submit your playing and coaching resume to the Recreation Office ASAP. The Travel Basketball executive Board will hold interviews in September.
