3/4 Rec League Information

3/4 Recreational Basketball Information 2018-2019

3rd and 4th grade boys and girls play in a recreational league in Forest Grove. This league is open to all 3/4 graders regardless of skill level.  In the past we have been able to offer recreational basketball for 5/6 grade boys and girls.  Unfortunately, Forest Grove has discontinued that program.  We will be unable to offer recreational basketball for 5/6 grade this year.

How will teams be divided? On November 17, 2018, there will be a Rec Team Evaluation Clinic. High School coaches will evaluate players and do their best to split teams evenly. Our goal is to have evenly competitive teams. Once teams are divided up, you will be contacted in late November by your coach with practice times.

Rec Eval Clinic - Saturday, November 17, 2018 - Banks Elementary School
    
• 3/4 Boys - 9:00am - 10:15am
     •
3/4 Girls - 11:30am - 12:45pm
(Must be at Clinic to be placed on a team, unless prior notice given)

Who will coach? Coaches are welcome to apply online. We welcome and encourage anyone interested to give it a try. No experience required.

Cost? Cost is $75 to play. If your child needs a jersey, it is an additional $25. The same uniforms are used year to year, we encourage you to ask friends and family for outgrown or no longer needed jerseys to help keep costs down.

Commitment level? There are usually 2 practices a week. All games are played on Saturdays in Forest Grove. Teams usually play 10 games during the season. Games start after winter break and end (usually) the first weekend of March. Schedules for these games are available the first week of January.

5/6 Grade Rec League Information

Unfortunately, Forest Grove has decided they will not offer a program for 5/6 grade Rec Basketball.  We encourage all kids to sign up and attend our Classic Tryouts. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and will be looking for other options for our Rec players in the future. If your child does not make our Classic team, we would encourage them to look into the Hoop/ YMCA  program to continue to work on their basketball game.  Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions at banksyouthbasketball@gmail.com.
