Below is a recent announcement from the Wilmington Recreation Department:
WILMINGTON, MA — Registration is open for the Wilmington Recreation Basketball League! This will mark the 58th year for the league, which is for girls (Grades 3 – 6) and boys (Grades 3 – 8). This year the entire program will take place on Saturdays. The first two weeks will be “skills and drills” clinics led by SNL staff and Philadelphia 76ers Advance Scout, Jeff Nelson. After that the regular season begins! Each game day begins with a “warm-up” (short practice) followed by a game.
Skills Clinics: Saturdays, December 4 & 11
Practice/Games: Saturdays, December 18 – February 12 (no 12/25, 1/1)
Register before the deadline of Thursday, October 7 to ensure a spot on a team. Late registrations will accepted based on availability; late registrants pay a $25 late fee.
We are also looking for coaches for this upcoming season. Parents, older siblings and high school students are all welcome to join. High school students can receive volunteers hours for their time.
New Student Coaches (Grades 9 – 12) are required to attend one of our two free Basketball Coaches Clinics. They are held on September 29 or October 5 from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. However, all coaches are welcome to attend the Clinic to learn to run an effective practice and ensure a successful, fun season for the players.
To register for any of our programs, please visit https://www.wilmingtonma.gov/recreation, call us at 978-658-4270, or stop by Town Hall, Room 8. We are open Monday – Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
