Longmeadow Youth Basketball Association

The Longmeadow Youth basketball Association offers this recreational program for girls and boys in grades 1 through 8. Everyone makes a team. Grades 1 and 2 play on Saturday mornings, are primarily instructional in nature, as each 1 hour session dedicates 30 minutes to teaching basic basketball skills, followed by a 30 minute game. Optional clinics for this age group may also be offered on a weeknight during the season to advance players' skills & development.

Grades 3 and 4 , 5 and 6, 7 and 8 teams have 1 practice and 1 game per week with referees at each game. The program emphasizes basketball fundamentals and teamwork. Optional clinics may also be offered for the 3rd-4th grade group.

More information on clinics will be available in late November/early December.

Program runs from early December thru March with practices and games in town and surrounding communities. Optional travel teams are also available for players in grades 3 through 8 for an additional fee collected after selection of travel teams, which occurs through a try out process in late October/ early November.
