PLAA Youth Summer Basketball 2021
Who: Open to all kids entering the 4th grade through the 8th grades, is returning this summer. We expect mostly boys but all are welcome.
What: A “pick-up” recreation program where there will be no set teams. Teams will be formed each evening based on attendance by the referees, and the referees will make every effort to ensure that the teams are evenly matched. In addition to pick-up games, other basketball games will be played each night. The program is structured with no set teams so that participants can miss evenings due to other activities, vacations, etc. High school and college players will organize the activities at the courts and act as the referees. They will have the emergency contact information for each of the players and keep a small medical kit with antiseptic spray, ice packs and band-aids. For the younger kids, they will ensure that the “resting” players at the East Beach are staying near the court and not playing on or around the stored boats, in the water, or in the parking lot. Parents are welcome to watch but are not to coach the teams.
When & Where: The program will start on Monday, July 5th and run through Thursday, August 12th. Players can expect to play two nights a week. Schedule will be determined based on enrollment. We would like to keep the grade levels separate and the expectation is for incoming 7th & 8th to be combined, but it is contingent on enrollment/subject to change. Tentative schedule: *grades/days subject to change Entering the 4th Grade – Mondays and Wednesdays from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm at the East Beach Court Entering the 5th Grade – Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm at the East Beach Court Entering the 6th Grades – Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:30 pm to 8:30pm at the Kilroy Field Court Entering the 7th and 8th Grades – Mondays and Wednesdays from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm at the Kilroy Court
How: The registration fee for lake PLCA families in good standing is $60, non-PLCA members is $90. The money is used to pay for reversible jerseys, referees each night (2 per night per court) and equipment. *A $20 late fee will be added to any registration submitted after July 5th, as it will impact ordering of jerseys and may impact scheduling. Why: To have fun, spend time playing the game of basketball with their friends, make new friends and want to continue playing basketball later on in the year and as they get older.
Thank you and hope to see you at the courts this summer!
