YOUTH BASKETBALL SIGNUPS 

Registrations for local youth basketball for area boys and girls in 1st through 6th grades will be held inside the fieldhouse at Welch Field in Westfield on Tuesday, October 26th, Tuesday, November 2nd, and Thursday, November 4th from 6 to 8 p.m. and on Saturday, October 30th from 9 to 10:30 a.m. There will be three different grade groups: 1st & 2nd grades, 3rd & 4th grades, and 5th & 6th grades. The 1st & 2nd grades will be co-ed and the older groups will be separated boys and girls.

Registration forms are available on our website on the right column of this youth basketball page.

All groups will be done in a clinic like format with a primary focus on building skills and fundamentals. However, the older groups WILL SCRIMMAGE OFTEN AND PLAY COMPETITIVE GAMES. We are still determining which facilities we will be able to use. However, no matter where we play, there will be certain COVID guidelines that MUST BE FOLLOWED such as face coverings and limited spectators. More information to come.

The fee for WESTFIELD RESIDENTS is $45 for the first child, $35 for the second and $25 for the third (max. of $105 per family). Scholarships are available if needed.

The fee for NON-WESTFIELD RESIDENTS is $60 for the first child, $50 for the second and $40 for the third (max. of $150 per family).

All groups will start tentatively on Saturday, November 13th.  The 1st and 2nd graders will most likely meet once a week for an hour at Eason Hall, WACS or the YWCA. The older grade groups will most likely meet twice a week for either an hour or an hour and a half at Eason Hall, WACS or the YWCA (depending on how much gym time we have). The clinics will either be sometime between 5 to 8 pm on weeknights or on Saturdays.
