***Grade 4-12 Evaluation Information***
Players are encouraged to attend all times scheduled for their age group. Players should wear their green and white mesh jersey to evaluations if possible; if you have not had a chance to pick up your player's jersey I will have them available on the first night of evaluations for each age group. Please contact the Recreation Office if you need to make other arrangements.
All players must be registered to attend evaluations. If you have not registered you son/daughter yet, please do so before evaluations. If your son/daughter is waiting to find out the results of school team tryouts before they deciding if s/he can play Rec basketball, please make a note on the registration form and I will hold your check. Any players registered after the first night of evaluations for their age group may be placed on a wait list and placed on a team only if space is available.
Please note that due to a scheduling issue with one of the gyms the schedule differs from what was originally posted. The schedule is as follows:
Boys Grades 4 & 5: Monday 11/27 & Wednesday 11/29 (Paxton Center School)

***GAMES START 12/9***
Players in grades 4-12 need a reversible green/white mesh jersey. If your son/daughter in grade 4-12 has a jersey that fits from a previous year you do not need to purchase a new one.
Jerseys are available for pick up NOW at the Recreation Office. If purchasing online please bring your confirmation with you to pick up.
Volunteer Coaches needed! Please contact the Recreation Office if you are interested in volunteering. K-3 Volunteers do not need Basketball experience.
