While I couldn’t convince my kids to go out for basketball last year, I’ve got a few days left before the November 15th sign-up deadline for the Mendham Patriots Recreational Basketball League to determine whether London and Maddie would like to shoot some hoops with the girls on Saturdays this winter. I’ve heard from other parents, including coach Mark Betlow, that the Mendham Patriots have an excellent program of clinics (Kindergarten through 3rd Grade Girls, Kindergarten through 4th Grade Boys), recreational league (4th through 8th Grade Girls, 5th through 8th Grade Boys) and travel team.

Clinics focus on skills and drills for developing fundamentals and foundation for basketball in a fun environment. The 4th grade boys clinic focus on more advanced skills development, with more games played.  Clinics run on Saturday mornings from January through March.  Cost is $100 per child. Chilren must wear comfortable clothing and sneakers and will also need their own basketball.

The recreational league program is made up of 7-10 kids per team, teams play a schedule as posted on website followed by a tournament where all teams participate - with seeding based on regular season records. All teams play at least 10 regular season games. Each division plays its games on the same day each week and on Saturday. Each team has a regular practice time and day of the week. Cost is $130 per child. Players are responsible for shoes, socks and shorts. Game shirts will be provided.

The program is open to children who live in or go to school in Mendham (Borough or Township).  Recreational program evaluations for purposes of team parity will be held on Saturday, November 15th at the Mendham Township Middle School.  Check the Mendham Patriots web site for the schedule. Please contact Scott Douglas (973.895.4640) with any questions.
