Basketball 2014 Banner 

The next season starts Saturday, December 5, 2015!  

Registration will begin in August  

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 below. 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!

PLEASE NOTE: All children will be required to have a health form on file before they attend camp. Also, if your child will be bringing any medication to camp including emergency medications such as a rescue inhaler or Epi-Pen, then a medication administration form must be completed and signed by a doctor and brought to camp. 2015 forms coming soon.

 

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

Suntime Funtime - at Cheshire Park

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! Extended Care hours available before and after the camp day.

Camp Quinnetukit - at Mixville Recreation Area

Children who will enter grades 1 to 4 in the fall have a blast at Camp Quinnetukit! Engaging staff will closely supervise and participate with children in organized games, sports, arts & crafts, swimming, boating and other age appropriate activities for the campers. All campers will be required to complete a swim test before swimming and/or boating. 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 - at Mixville Recreation Area

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.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 - at Mixville Recreation Area

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 one field trip per week. The trip is a full day affair at an amusement or adventure park. 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 - at Highland School

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 Mixville once per week.   The camp day runs from 11:30am to 4:00pm with options for before care from 7:00am to 8:30am and after care from 4:00pm to 6:00pm also available. Summer School meets from 8:30am to 11:30am.
