Registration is now open for 2023-2024 Berkeley Heights girls’ IN-TOWN PAL basketball.
The program is open to Berkeley Heights girls grades 3 through 5 and all ability levels are eligible to play. Every child that participates on a 4th and 5th grade Berkeley Heights travel basketball team is REQUIRED to register and play on an in-town team. You will need to register under both programs.
There will be two leagues:
· 3rd Grade Girls
· 4th and 5th Grade Girls
The objective of the in-town program is to introduce the game of basketball in an organized manner which will foster an environment of instruction and teamwork and promote safety and sportsmanship.
There are no tryouts to participate in the in-town PAL program. All girls who register will be placed on a team. The goal is to place girls playing on a travel team equally amongst the number of teams in the respective grade level program. Non-travel team girls will be assigned a team based on input from the Berkeley Heights girls’ commissioner and volunteer coaches with the goal to make the teams as fair and balanced as possible. At times, it may be necessary to redistribute girls to ensure the teams and games are as competitive as possible.
Teams will play for one hour typically on Saturday morning, consisting of a short practice and a 40-minute game. The season will start in early December and run through the end of February or early March.
Registration will remain open through October 31st. The participation fee for the program is $125.00. All players will receive a team jersey for participating. Please indicate your daughter's shirt size when registering.
We need volunteer coaches and this program cannot succeed without your help. If you are interested in coaching, please be sure to indicate that while registering your daughter online.
Please take note: All girls grades 4th and 5th participating on a travel team are required to play in the in-town league and attend 75 percent of the games or you cannot take a spot on a travel team. There will be no exceptions to this rule.
