Biddy Basketball Program - Fall/Winter

The Biddy Basketball League is an in-town basketball program open to all boys and girls in Grades 2-8 regardless of ability or experience. Teams are organized by grade. Boys and Girls will play in separate leagues. This is a 10-game season that runs from the first Saturday of December until the second week of February.

 

Saturday games:
All games are played on Saturdays between 8 AM & 6 PM. Game times are scheduled on the hour and vary each week. A full schedule will be provided at the beginning of the season.

T-shirts will be provided and should be worn to each game. Players should wear shorts and sneakers.

Players are asked NOT to bring their own basketballs or valuables from home to games and practices. All necessary equipment will be provided.

Please note: In case of a game day cancellation due to inclement weather every effort will be made to make up the games. Cancelled practices will not be made up.

 

Free Clinics:
In an effort to get players excited about the season, we will be offering free clinics prior to the Biddy Basketball season. This offers potential new players the chance to try out the sport and veteran players an opportunity to get on the court! All participants will need to complete the registration portion of this flyer. Participants will not be allowed to participate without a signed form. Please click here to register online.

Registration Information:

Registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis. There will be no refunds. Due to the number of children in the program a position cannot be guaranteed after the deadline of November 5, 2018.

We want to accommodate everyone so please register early! We need to have our final numbers in place before we organize the teams, assign coaches, order t-shirts and schedule practices and games. Late arrivals make this very difficult. Late registrations will be accepted but only if space is available. We cannot guarantee placement for late registrations.

You can register online, by mail or in person.

  • To register online, visit our Online Registration Page.  You can pay by credit card, debit card or electronic check.
  • To register by mail or in person, visit our Registration Forms Page to download the appropriate registration form. You can pay be check or cash.

 

Coaches needed!
The success of our basketball program depends largely on parents/guardians willing to help us by coaching. If you know the game, even only a bit, and want to have fun while helping the community, please consider volunteering to coach. You may even opt to coach with another parent to share duties.

We receive a large number of applications from high school students volunteering to coach. We would like to give parents and guardians the opportunity to coach their child’s team before assigning high school students.

Your commitment involves a one-hour Saturday game (at various times) and a one-hour practice at a designated day and time during the week.
