SUMMER YOUTH BASKETBALL

2020 Warren Parks and Recreation Summer Youth Basketball Program at Burr’s Hill Park
Girls - Tuesdays starting June 30 6-8 pm
Boys - Thursdays starting July 2 6-8 pm

We are proud to provide an opportunity for our local youth to play the game of basketball as part of a team among peers in their community at a beautiful location. The purpose of this league is to help our youth learn/sharpen their skills and apply these abilities to the game of basketball.  All people helping to make this program a success are doing so strictly on a volunteer basis. For the program to run smoothly and efficiently, we will need to work together.

This program will run on Tuesdays for girls and on Thursdays for boys from the week of June 30th through TBD, times to be determined. After the first week of the program, team rosters will be developed and determined to be fair and balanced. The first half of each session will focus on developmental methods, techniques, and skills. The second half of each session will be used for game play consisting of two 12-minute halves. Official referees will be at each game to uphold the rules and regulations of an official basketball game.

 
The deadline for registration is now CLOSED.
