Event details and schedule

BASKETBALL INFORMATION FOR PARENTS

3rd through 8th Graders:

  • Registration closes on October 28th but there are limited spots available so register soon! W e compile registration forms into late fall and group together athletes to create teams based on player and coach availability, age, as well as skill level to keep the teams as even as possible. Each season is different due to this and we appreciate your patience so we can work together to not leave any child behind and all can participate in practices and games that fit their schedule.

COACHES: Mandatory meeting for all coaches & assistant coaches will be in person at the Palmyra Municipal Building or on UTUBE and a link sent by Tuesday, November 9th to coaches. This will cover all instructions for season.

  • Players will be informed of team placement and preseason practice times by Tuesday, November 16th to give coaches time to reach out to you after the coaches meeting the week before and decide on any changes that need made due to schedule updates or needs met for coaches with multiple teams. Please check your SPAM email if you don't hear from your coach by November 16th, then call or email us at 838-9244 or email hhershey@palmyrarec.org if no one reaches out by that date. Please be aware not all the coaches contact players on the same day and the deadline to contact you isn't until November 16th.

GAME INFORMATION:

  • All games will be during the week and based on player availability noted on your registration form. We always do our best to accomodate everyone's schedule each season. (Saturday games are again unlikely this year).
  • Games are open to spectators but practices are closed. We will keep you updated as we move forward. If we need to close games again this year, we will encourage coaches and assistants (2 per team only) to broadcast the game live on facebook.
  • MASKS DURING GAMES: Games are open to parents and spectators as long as they social distance and wear a facemask at all times. Facemasks must be worn by all athletes, spectators and participants while in schools. Please note: if facemasks are not worn, we will have to close the gyms to all spectators and parents and use Facebook live to stream games. Please consider this before you sign up your child.

1ST AND 2ND GRADE BASKETBALL INFORMATION:

Sign up soon there are limited spots available!

Preseason : Season will begin the week of January 18th and go to Mid- March consisting of 7 games and a practice preseason- all at Pine Street Elementary School. We will offer four 45 minute practices for the first two weeks of preseason Mondays and Tuesdays. Practices are closed to parents in January preseason. Mondays and Tuesdays are the only two days offered for 1&2 grade due to court availability and the arrangement of youth basketball nets at Pine Elementary. Most weeks will be one event per week, but to finish before spring sports we might need to have two games once or twice in season.

Regular Season : After two weeks of preseason, two teams will share a court for a 25-30 minute practice, have a 5 minute break and then continue with a 30 minute game (four, six minute quarters) against the team they share the court with that weekday evening. (No weekend games)

COVID19 Procedures

Practice/Game nights starting in February will be open to parents, but social distancing and masks are required by ALL at ALL TIMES with the exception of our players when they are playing basketball on the court. When players are arriving or leaving the court they need to wear their masks in PASD schools.

Practices in January are closed to parents at this time (as noted above).

*Please do not send your child to practice if they show any possible symptoms of COVID19.

Again, we appreciate your patience as we work through COVID19 safety measures.
