I hope you have had a great summer...hard to believe that we are planning for the 2014-2015 season. Registration for travel tryouts only will open on Sept 3rd. General registration for all leagues will be open on Sept 22nd. Late fees for 4th-8th graders will be assessed starting November 3rd. Please see below for more information on each division:

2nd grade(Shooting Stars). This is a clinic only and will be held this year on Saturday mornings at Nab gym. The clinics will run for 1 hour and we will have 6 dates with several sessions each day: Jan 3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th, 31st and Feb 7th.  Last year we had moved the clinics to Sunday but there seemed to be a lot of conflicts with First Communion so we are returning it to Nab gym on Saturdays. Fee is $40

3rd grade boys and girls. These are also clinics but we start on Sunday Dec 14th and have clinics every Sunday except around the holidays until Feb 22nd. We will have 2 sessions of 3rd grade girls and 2 sessions of 3rd grade boys. These clinics will be held at Crisafulli School starting at 11A and running until 5P. At this time, we have not determined if the boys or the girls will go first. During the season, for one of the sessions, the varsity players from Westford Academy come and run the clinics. The third graders will also attend a varsity game later in the season and play small sided games at half time. The fee for this division is $55.

Junior Girls(4th and 5th grade)JRG. In November, 4th and 5th grade girls will be contacted to attend an evaluation. These are not tryouts but rather evaluations to help when forming teams. Teams will be selected by mid November and practices will start at the end of November The season starts with a jamboree on Saturday Dec 6th and it culminates in championship Sunday on March 15th with an awards ceremony following at WA. All teams make the playoffs. Junior girl's games will be played on Saturday's at Crisafulli School.  They will have one practice per week at Robinson gym. The fee for this division is $100.

Junior Boys (4th and 5th grade)JRB. In November, 4th and 5th grade boys will also be contacted to attend an evaluation. Like the JRG division, teams will be selected in Mid November. The season will start with a Jamboree on Sunday Dec 7th and the season will end on Sunday March 15th with the Championship game and an award's ceremony at Westford Academy. In the past, we have played our games at Crisafulli and Abbot. This year all games will be held at Abbot and we will run games from 9A until 5P on Sundays until the end of February when playoffs will begin. Practices will be held weekly and will take place at Day School. The fee for this division is also $100.

If a 9th grade boys makes JV or Varsity, they cannot play in this division. All games are played on Saturday's at Miller and they practice weekly.

Girls and Boys Travel Program(4th-8th). This is a competative basketball program which has open tryouts in late September. We have girls teams from 5th grade to 8th grade and boys teams from 4th grade to 8th grade. Teams are selected in early October and will have practices twice a week from mid/late October to the first week of March.  Most teams will have 1 or 2 games on weekends with an occasional weeknight game.  Games start in December and run until the beginning of March and are played against towns within 30 minutes of Westford. To tryout for a travel team you need to register online in September(no cost to tryout).  If your son or daughter is selected for a team you will need to register a second time.  Once selected for a team the cost is $175 per player.  There will also be a separate charge for uniforms.

Divisions are based on grades not age--there are no exceptions.  Students in grades 9-12 can fill out an online coach's application if they are interested in coaching. 9th graders can only coach in the JRG, JRB or 3rd grade clinics. The deadline for coach's applications is Oct 24th. No applications submitted after that day will be accepted. These applications will be available online beginning Sept 22nd.
