Youth Basketball

Hello Basketball Families!

We are pleased you have chosen to participate in our Basketball program this season. Although this year's sessions will certainly look different than in past years, we can assure you that our focus on SAFETY and FUN for the participants has not changed. We have studied the New York State Sports and Recreation Guidelines  in order to develop new protocols for our programs. While we will highlight a few significant procedures below, we encourage you to view our Return to Rec Operational Plan for complete details and understanding along with reviewing our program information below.

Your family’s safety is our number one concern as the City works towards a return to play!

In order to ensure the safety of both you and the community, the City will be instituting the following measures:

  • All participants will undergo a health screening prior to each class. This screening will consist of:
    • Attesting the participants temperature is not 100.4 F or higher
    • Answering NO to the following COVID-19 related questions:
      • Have you had COVID-19 symptoms in the past 14 days
      • Have you had a positive COVID-19 test in the past 14 days
      • Have you had close or proximate contact with confirmed or suspected COVID-19 cases in the past 14 days  
  • Requiring that everyone who enters our facilities wear a mask at all times
  • Not allowing spectators at the Recreation Center

Registration ends Friday, November 6th. Don't miss out! See you on the court!

Refund Policy:
An appropriate refund will be issued in the event of program changes or cancellations.

Girls and Boys Instructional Basketball Program:

Basketball is back at the Rec!

Our Instructional basketball program is geared towards the player eager to work on their individual skills and learn the fundamentals necessary to become a successful basketball player. Each player will receive 6 training sessions, with each session focusing on different skills. The practice plans will be prepared by our basketball coordinator, and implemented through volunteer coaches. This program’s success depends on volunteer coaches. Each player registered for the Instructional Basketball Program will have priority in registering for our Basketball League in January, if we have clearance from NYS. Participating in the Instructional Program is not required to participate in the Basketball League. We will hold a separate registration period for the league once we are cleared to do so.
