3/4 Recreational Basketball Information 2021-222

3rd and 4th grade boys and girls play in a recreational league through Forest Grove. This league is open to all 3/4 graders regardless of skill level. Practices are held in Banks during the week while games are played in Forest Grove on Saturdays.

How will teams be divided? In November, there will be a Rec Team Evaluation Clinic. High School coaches will evaluate players and do their best to split teams evenly. Our goal is to have evenly competitive teams. Once teams are divided up, you will be contacted in late November by your coach with practice times.

Rec Eval Clinic - Saturday, November 20, 2021 - Banks Elementary School
     • 3/4 Boys - 9:00am - 10:15am
     • 3/4 Girls - 11:30am - 12:45pm
(Must be at Clinic to be placed on a team, unless prior notice given)

Who will coach? Coaches are welcome to apply online. We welcome and encourage anyone interested to give it a try. No experience required.

Cost? Cost is $75 to play. If your child needs a jersey, it is an additional $25. The same uniforms are used year to year, we encourage you to ask friends and family for outgrown or no longer needed jerseys to help keep costs down.

Commitment level? There are usually 2 practices a week in Banks. All games are played on Saturdays in Forest Grove. Teams usually play 10 games during the season. Games start after winter break and end (usually) the first weekend of March. Schedules for these games are available the first week of January.
