Teams
Teams are made with every effort to create balanced teams. As a result we are not able to take team requests. We will use the ranking system below to guide player placement.
1- Played Travel or AAU basketball for many years
2 – New to Travel or AAU basketball
3 – Played Biddy or other organized sports previously
4 – Never played basketball before
We aim to keep team rosters at a maximum of ten players to allow ample playing time. Players will be contacted with regards to team placement.
Practice
Practice schedules have been developed for each grade level except for second grade. The time and location of your practice will be provided in email with your team placement. Multiple teams will share gym space during practices.
Please note: Practices scheduled on school holidays will not be held that week. Cancelled practices will not be made up.
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.
Please note: In case of a game day cancellation due to inclement weather every effort will be made to make up the games during February vacation.

Registration Process
All players must register by November 1st at noon. After November 1st we will begin placing players on a wait list.
To secure your spot on the wait list, you must submit a paper registration form along with payment made by check, money order or exact cash to the Milford Community Program office. Online registration will not be available at this time. There is no guarantee that wait listed players will be placed on a team.
Once registered there will be no refunds unless we are not able to place your child on a team. Additionally, we are not able to honor requests to move players to another team or place players together on a team. Exceptions will be made for siblings playing in the same division.

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, please click here to download a registration form. Registrations must be accompanied by payment in the form of check, money order or exact cash. Please make checks and money orders payable to “Town of Milford – MCSUP”.

 

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 a little 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 have had coaches in the past who were not parents or guardians of a player, they were friends or relatives who just love the game. We ask that you please reach out to anyone who may fit this description. Please keep young adults recently graduated from college in mind.
We always 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 as coaches.
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.
