Wednesday, September 18, 2013 • 3:51pm
Registration for New Providence Recreation’s 2013 – 14 Winter Basketball program is now open. Programs are available for girls and boys in grades 1 – 8 and the cost to participate is $80 per player. The season begins the week after Thanksgiving. The link to online registration and additional information can be found at www.leaguelineup.com/newprovbasketball.
During registration, participants can also sign up for the annual Pioneer Basketball Clinic on Saturday, Dec. 14. Cost is $15. Run by New Providence High School coaches and players, the clinic is a fundraiser for the high school sports teams.
To facilitate the team formation process, Skills Assessment sessions for grades 3 – 8 will be held in the evening during the week of October 21.
For grades 1 and 2, NP Recreation offers the Saturday Fundamentals program . One-hour sessions (groups are divided by grade and gender) are devoted to basic drills, skills, and fun scrimmages. Older grades (3rd – 8th) meet during the week in the evening. Boys and girls in grades 3 & 4 have one instructional session and one scrimmage, while grades 5 – 8 have one practice and one game each week and play-offs at the end of the season.
Volunteer coaches are the backbone of the Recreation sports programs and are needed for all leagues. We encourage any adult with an interest in basketball and helping youth to apply. Volunteers do not have a child in the program to volunteer.
New Providence Recreation is also seeking Team Sponsors for the upcoming Basketball season. More and more, the support of local businesses and community organizations enables NP Recreation to keep costs low and affordable to participants. Team sponsor names are placed on team shirts and the season Web site. If you would like to sponsor a basketball team, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
