Sunday pick up hoops 4-6th grade boys

At the conclusion of the GBL season I spoke to numerous parents whose boys wanted to continue playing basketball. With that in mind I have decided to try something that will be hopefully both, flexible and fun for any and all Guilford 4-6th graders.  

 

From 10:30 to 12:00 every Sunday starting March 12th I have reserved the Fire House basketball courts for boy to run 'pick up' games. The idea is to have kids sign up on a week to week basis - there is no long term commitment, just sign up that week if your son wants to come play that Sunday. We have been doing this for 6 weeks now and have had 8-14 kids every week. They are really enjoying the opportunity.

And sign up for any week.  Creating an account on the site makes it easy to use, but you can sign up as a guest. If you want to see the sign up process I made a 1 minute 'video' here 

 

If you have any questions please just text or email me -   - 860-614-1014. If you are interested in helping organize (we could probably use 1-2 adults a week to help ref or simply be a presence) please let me know ASAP.

 

This is open to ALL 4-6th grade boys- ALL skill levels, and is not a GBL league but rather a way for your son to play basketball with his classmates Sundays he is available.

 

Hope to see you all soon.
