Girls Basketball Grades 7 & 8 Quabbin Valley League
This division is again playing in the Quabbin Valley League. This is a recreational traveling hoop league. The philosophy of the league is to teach fair play, good sportsmanship and improve skills of each individual.
Teams travel to towns such as South Hadley, Belchertown, Ludlow, Chicopee, Granby, Monson, Palmer, and others. We will practice and play home games in Northampton.
Teams will play at least 12 games, with “stop time” rules. Practices start in November, games are late December through February, with playoffs in March.
All players receive a reversible basketball team shirt, and play in every game.
Teams are officiated by certified, or in some cases adult, officials.
Players will use a intermediate sized basketball (28.5") and a 10 foot hoop.
Residents of Northampton, Florence, Leeds have priority until November 1. Non-residents registering after that date must attend school in Northampton, or must not have a Quabbin League team in their town of residence.
Coaches Needed Coaches and assistant coaches are needed each year for our teams. The basketball league has about 28 teams each year, and it wouldn't be successful without the dedication, knowledge and time given to the program by all our amazing volunteers.
