At this time, the Massachusetts Board of Education mandates that masks be worn indoors by both students and visitors. All players, coaches, referees, league directors, and spectators will be required to wear a mask at all times. We will update this policy per the Board of Education decisions.

Who Can Participate: This recreational league is open to Acton and Boxborough residents and out-of-town students who attend A-B schools; this program is for students in grades 3-12.
Any players who are on Travel or School teams will not be able to participate in the Community Ed. League. Parents can register and will receive 90% refunds if their children later make these more competitive teams. All participants will have an equal opportunity to play and will be placed on teams to achieve balanced competition. Once teams are formed, coaches will contact players.

Important Dates: Opening clinics will be included on the registration page for each league. Practice for most leagues will begin on December 10. Scrimmage games will be played on December 11 & 18. League games will be played from Saturday, January 8 through Saturday, March 19. There will be no games played on February 26, the second weekend of February vacation.

Mandatory League Clinics:  All participants are required to attend the opening clinics in November and December (schedules are posted on registration pages) at the times and locations listed. All players are asked to attend. The clinics allow the coaches and directors to evaluate the ability of players as all participants in our league have an equal opportunity to play and are placed on teams to achieve balanced competition. This is difficult at best if coaches and directors don’t have the opportunity to evaluate your child.  

Practice Schedules & Team Drafts: 
All teams will practice one night per week. The weeknight practices are at a fixed time/day. Parents will be asked to submit a form with 3 practice nights (M-F) that work for their children. Teams will be drafted according to ability and availability in order to achieve the most balanced teams possible. Parents will be able to update their child's availability as late as their clinic check-in. Once the clinic has happened coaches will draft teams. Requesting a different practice night after teams have been drafted would create a "player trade" situation. This causes disruption for coaches and disappointment for a player who was happy with their placement when they are suddenly traded. We reserve the right to refuse a player trade after teams have been formed.

Game Schedule: All teams play 1 game each Saturday. Games are scheduled on a rotating basis in the hours published for each league, i.e. if your league is scheduled for 8-11 on Saturday morning, you may have a game at 8:00, 9:00, or 10:00.


Coaches & League Directors: In order for the league to run smoothly, volunteers are needed to serve as league directors and team coaches. The final selection of coaches will be at the discretion of the league director. League Directors’ children play at no cost. If you are interested in serving as a league director or coach please fill out the coaching form or contact Luanne Flood.

Student Coaches:  High School students in 11th or 12th grade are eligible to coach one team with parent supervision. Anyone interested should fill out the student coaching form. No phone calls or walk-ins, please. Student coaches will be selected by league directors. Student coaches may not have a partner who is a high school or club teammate for any sport playing during our basketball season. We have found this to be a problem when both students have to miss due to their sport’s practice or game.

Registration Process: Registration is currently available through our Online Registration System. The cost of the basketball program is $179 per student. Once a league is full, players will be placed on a waitlist in the order in which their registration is received.

Refund Policy: To receive a 90% refund, players must withdraw from the league no later than five full business days before their league’s clinic date. Community Ed. will not provide refunds after these dates unless a player makes a Travel or School team.  Students making school teams will be given a 90% refund.
