BARC's basketball registration for students in GRADES K-9 is open from 11/3/18 to 12/2/18. (11/26/18-12/2/18 will be considered late registration.) *There is limited space in the Boys/Girls K-2 & Boys/Girls 6-9 divisions, so register early. THE K-2 DIVISION IS CURRENTLY FULL. PLEASE EMAIL ballstonarearec@gmail.com TO HAVE YOUR CHILD ADDED TO THE WAITLIST.

To be eligible, children must reside in the Towns of Malta, Milton, or Ballston, or the Village of Ballston Spa and meet the grade requirements above as of September 2018. There will be no exceptions. If you do not reside in the BSCSD, there will be an added $25.00 fee.

The season begins on Thurs, January 3rd and will continue to February 14th. (Mon, 2/11/19 will be a make up date for any games cancelled due to weather.) There are two time slots, depending on the child's grade- 5:45p or 7p. Divisions will be assigned their time slot after registration has ended. There are separate boys' and girls' divisions for grades 3-5. K-2 and 6-9 are co-ed. Practices & games will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays, other than the week of 1/22/19. That week games will be on Tues, 1/22/19 & Wed, 1/23/19.

LATE FEE: There will be a $10 late fee added for registrations received after November 25th. However, late registrations will only be accepted if there is space on a team.

WE CAN NOT ACCEPT REQUESTS FOR COACHES, CARPOOLING, SPECIFIC DAYS OF THE WEEK, TO MEET SCHEDULING NEEDS, OR FOR FRIENDS OR FAMILY MEMBERS (OTHER THAN SIBLINGS) TO BE PLACED TOGETHER.

Students who make the school modified, JV, or varsity basketball teams can not play BARC basketball. They can register, but if selected for one of these teams, you must notify BARC so that their registration can be voided.

Remember if you want to coach or assistant coach you MUST register separately as an adult.

If you are interested in sponsoring a team, contact Nora Osuchowski at ballstonarearec@gmail.com.

Welcome

REGISTERING  

  • Please read the program description & questions carefully to avoid being placed in the wrong grade, division, or class, and to avoid errors on your team shirt (when appropriate).                                                                                                                                                                                                      

INTERESTED IN COACHING?

  • If you want to coach a sport, just register online through your family account. (Answering 'yes' to the question on your child's registration about being interested in coaching does not register you.) Still have questions? Here are some answers to regularly asked questions:

    • What if I can’t commit to the entire schedule?  We know it’s a big time commitment, but if you partner with another parent to coach & let us know in the comment section of both coaches' registrations who you're partnering with, we will place you together. You can also enlist parent volunteers at the start of the season to cover the occasional game or practice. Many parents are eager to help out, but just can’t do it every week.
    • What if I have one weekday that I can’t be there (for example Wednesdays), can I still coach?  Let us know in the comment section of your registration what weekday it is & we will make sure that you don’t get scheduled that day each week. We can't meet schedule requests for multiple days per week, or for varoious days throughout the season, but we can typically avoid the same day each week.
    • I don’t have any coaching experience. Can I still coach?  Yes. While coaching experience is helpful, we are a recreational & instructional program. Our rules are basic and are not complicated- especially for the younger age groups. We are here to have fun.
    • Will I get a copy of drills or other training? Yes. You get the rules at the coaches meeting. We also set up one or two clinics prior to the start of the season for coaches- to go over drills & techniques. In addition, we have drills that we email to anyone who would like them.

Please consider signing up to coach. We can’t run these programs without volunteers. If you have not coached before, a background check will have to be completed.
