General Information
Boy’s & Girl’s Developmental Basketball League

The Milford Recreation Department announces that it will begin accepting registrations for its popular Boy’s & Girl’s Developmental Basketball League on September 14, 2018. The league will play Sunday afternoon’s between 11:30am and 4:30pm (rotates weekly) starting in early December at the West Shore Recreation Center and the Parsons Complex Gymnasium running approximately 10 non-consecutive weeks. Children must be in 2nd or 3rd Grade to be eligible; for the boy's there will be two divisions, each divided by grade. Girls will have their own division of 2nd and 3rd grades combined. This program is for Milford residents or taxpayers only.

Each week teams will have a brief 15-minute instruction period followed by a 45-minute game. The emphasis will be on its participants having fun while learning the basic fundamental skills & rules of basketball. The league’s design relies solely on the coach’s ability to teach during a game situation while serving as a referee. This affords each coach the ability to stop the game and explain the reason for the stoppage to effectively teach the rules and fundamentals of basketball in a game setting. Scores or standings will not be kept; lowered baskets will be used and equal playing time is mandatory.

The $40.00 registration fee includes a uniform/t-shirt. Teams will consist of a maximum of ten players to better facilitate equal playing time. Individuals may register at www.milfordrecreation.com or in person at the Recreation Department in the Parsons Complex – 70 West River St. THE REGISTRATION DEADLINE FOR ALL RETURNING PLAYERS IS NOVEMBER 2, 2018; November 12 for new players.

Teams are created by the Recreation Department based upon parent/coach requests and child's school; there is no draft. All requests will be accommodated provided team space permits. Returning players are automatically assigned to their previous year’s team provided they register by the deadline. New players are added to an existing team or become a part of a new team. The target start date is December 2, 2018 and the league should conclude by February.

Coaches are also wanted and may sign-up upon registering his/her child or on our website. Coaches may request as many children as they would like not to exceed ten total players.
