Join the Greenwich Basketball Association recreational league and become part of another great season of basketball that ends with our exciting MARCH MADNESS TOURNAMENT.  For those interested, tryout for our competitive travel programs that participate in the Fairfield County Basketball League ("FCBL")

Recreation
The recreational league is a town-wide community based basketball program for boys and girls in grades 4 through 12.  It is designed to encourage fun and to stimulate each player to develop basketball skills and self-esteem.  Everyone enjoys equal playing time.

The season for the 4th - 8th grades runs from November through February and culminates in a March Madness Tournament during late February and early
March.  Practices are held at area schools on Saturdays and games are played on Sundays.

The season for the 9th - 12th grades will run from December to March.  There are no practices, just games which are generally played at the High School.  There will be three or four pre-season games prior to the Holiday break and then games will be played throughout January and February on Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays culminating in a March Madness Tournament during early March.
