Rec Registration is just about winding down and we will begin player evaluations and team formations this weekend so the kids can start playing ASAP.
The evaluation sessions are intended to give all coaches a high level understanding of players skill level so that teams are as evenly competitive as possible.
Once teams are formed, your child will be contacted by their coach for their first practice. If you have not provided your child’s shirt size as part of the registration process, please be sure to update your record on our registration system which you can find on our website (www.branchburgbasketball.com).
Below is a schedule of evaluation sessions for each age/gender group.
Boys 5/6 Grade 8:30AM-10:00AM in BCMS Main Gym
Boys 7/8 Grade 10:00AM-11:30AM in BCMS Main Gym
Girls 5/6 Grade 2:30PM-3:15PM in BCMS AUX Gym
Girls 7/8 Grade 3:15PM-4:00PM in BCMS AUX Gym
Girls 3/4 Grade 6:30PM-8:00PM in Whiton Gym
Boys 3/4 Grade 6:30PM-8:30PM in Whiton Gym
Note: If your child cannot make an evaluation session, coaches will collaborate and determine where to place your child.
For the 2020 Rec season, we have partnered with the RIB League (Recreation Intertown Basketball) run by Somerville recreation. Our numbers are up, but due to odd numbers in certain age groups, we felt the RIB would give kids more variety of competition. RIB provides 8 rec games ( 4 home and 4 away) with the away games being mostly local. We will also look for additional opportunities outside of RIB for our Branchburg teams to face each other when possible. RIB does not have a playoff, but we will continue to run our “Championship” day where Branchburg teams across all ages will face each other to determine this years champions!!
We are looking forward to another great Rec season and appreciate all of your support.
