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.

Team Barefoot Heats up the Court during GBA's Newly Created

The setting was Greenwich Catholic School’s gymnasium. The players were team Ostriker and Team Barefoot. The competition was intense. It was the final game for the summer league of the Greenwich Basketball Association (GBA), which ran throughout the month of July.

Of the ten teams, each comprised of ten players, Team Ostriker and Team Barefoot were the two to make it to the top.

The winning Team Barefoot included Colin Barefoot, Jesse Adelberg, Max Barefoot, Packy Hanrahan, Patrick Santini, Brendan Santini, Ben Steinman, Slater Jones, Jack Doyle and Ken Dorian.

Tony Pignataro, president of GBA, recruited nephew Matt Pignataro to keep the book during games. With the help of Kayla Kerendian, Matt kept score and distributed t-shirts to the winning team at the end of the championship.

“This is the first time we are doing it in the summer,” Matt said, adding that the summer league players ranged in age from rising high school seniors through age 24.
