Introduction and Fundamentals of Basketball: 

For boys in kindergarten thru grade four and girls in kindergarten thru grade five schedules are mailed after Thanksgiving and will also be posted online. Teams are formed at random with an attempt to keep players with others from the same school. One buddy request per player is allowed. Both buddies must make the request for the pair to be placed on the same team. Each team will have a specific one to one and a half hour time slot when they practice and play on Saturdays. Shirts are distributed on the first day when the children meet their coaches. Parents are encouraged to coach their child’s team!


Skill Development and League Play: 

For boys in grades five thru twelve and girls in grades six thru twelve, teams are formed after initial player evaluations. Buddy or carpool requests are not allowed. Evaluation and Draft times are listed in the “Notes” column on the detailed registration flyer. Players will only be evaluated on the first day so attendance on this first day is crucial for both players and volunteer coaches. During team formation (draft) every effort is made to keep the teams balanced. Drafts are for coaches only and are held at the Youth Center unless otherwise noted. Players will be contacted by their coaches in the days after the draft and will receive a schedule the second week of basketball. Schedules will also be available online. Each of these leagues has different skip dates.  Please read your schedule carefully!

 

 

This program is run by the coaches and players of the Cheshire High School Boys and Girls Basketball teams and will be held on December 29 & 30, 2014 at Cheshire High School for boys and girls in grades 1 - 8.  A registration form can be downloaded here.

We offer traditional Summer Day Camps for children age four through entering grade 9.

Suntime Funtime

This half day or full day camp is the perfect way for young children (age 4 to entering grade 1 in the fall)  to get an introduction to the camp experience, make friends and develop or enhance socialization skills. Our caring staff will offer opportunities for free play and self expression and organize story time, arts & crafts, games, sports and water activities. Themes and special guests make each day an adventure!

Camp Quinnetukit

Children who will enter grades 1 to 4 in the fall have a blast at Camp Quinnetukit! Engagin staff will closely supervise and participate with children in organized games, sports, arts & crafts, swimming at the Community Pool and other age appropriate activities for the campers. All campers will be required to complete a swim test before entering the pool. Weather permitting, campers will receive 2 swim lessons each session they attend camp. This is a great way to reinforce your regular summer swim lessons. There are themes and special activities/guests each week to add variety. The camp day runs from 9:00am to 3:30pm with options for before care from 7:00am to 9:00am and after care from 3:30pm to 6:00pm also available.

Camp Sassacus

The Mixville Tradition continues! Campers entering grades 5 & 6 in the fall go on one small trip each week. In addition to the trips, campers have plenty of fun playing games, completing arts & craft projects, swimming, boating and participating in sports. In the past few years campers have participated in "skill hours" in which they pick an activity to learn more about and practice daily for the week.  Past skill hours have included fort building, wilderness first aid, canoeing, quidditch, dodgeball, bracelet making and more! All campers complete a swim test before participating in water activities. The trips are generally scheduled for the morning and campers are bussed to the Community Pool for swimming in the afternoon on trip days. For all trips campers will be transported by bus and return to Mixville in time for regular 3:30pm pickup.  The camp day runs from 9:00am to 3:30pm with options for before care from 7:00am to 9:00am and after care from 3:30pm to 6:00pm also available.

Camp Sachem

Come see what Mixville has to offer.  Campers who will enter grades 7 to 9 in the fall come for one week and end up wanting to come back for the rest of the summer! Enjoy kayaking and canoeing in our very own pond. On those really hot days, you can go for a swim or play water basketball. Join this camp on exciting field trips and take part in the weekly cookout and dodgeball tournament on Fridays. Campers go on at least one field trip per week. The trip is a full day affair at an amusement or adventure park. Pending minimum enrollment each week of 20 campers a second field trip will be scheduled for a morning trip followed by an afternoon at the Community Pool.  The camp day runs from 9:00am to 3:30pm with options for before care from 7:00am to 9:00am and after care from 3:30pm to 6:00pm also available.

Afternoon Sizzler

We offer an all-day collaborative program with the Department of Education, offering the best of both worlds: academic enrichment conducted by Summer School staff in the mornings and planned recreational activities conducted by Parks & Recreation camp staff in the afternoons. Children who complete grades K to 6 in the spring must be registered with Cheshire Summer School to be eligible fore Sizzler and Sizzler Extended Care. Recreational activities will consist of a variety of games, sports, sprinkler/water activities and arts & crafts. Weather permitting, children will be bussed to the Community Pool or Mixville once per week.   The camp day runs from 12:00pm to 4:00pm with options for before care from 7:00am to 9:00am and after care from 4:00pm to 6:00pm also available. Summer School meets from 9:00am to 12:00pm.
