Winter Basketball

Winter Basketball

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has deemed basketball a Higher Risk sport (characterized by a likelihood of routine close and/or sustained proximity or deliberate physical contact between between participants and a high probability that respiratory particles will be transmitted between participants).

As a result, we are not planning to offer Community Ed Basketball this winter.

It is our sincere hope that this will be only a one-year hiatus and we will return to our regular schedule in the fall of 2021. 

Thank you, Luanne Flood

Who Can Participate: This recreational league is open to Acton & Boxborough boys and girls or out of town students who attend A-B schools 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: Practices will begin the week of December 16. Each team has one practice during the week (starting after 6:00 pm) with games being played on Saturday. The Saturday game schedule will change each week.  Scrimmage games will be played 12/14 & 12/21. Games will run Saturday 1/4 through Saturday 3/14. There will be no games on Saturday 2/22.

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.  

Coaches & League Directors: In order for the league to run smoothly, volunteers are needed to serve as league directors and team coaches. 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 $159 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 two 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.
