The 2010-11 Mendham Patriots Basketball Season is right around the corner!  I just received an announcement that Mendham Patriots Basketball registration is OPEN for Travel Players, Recreational Players and Clinic participants, and London and Maddie are all signed up to play.  Registration, and payment, will only be available online this year. Payment must be submitted via credit card during the on-line registration.

Clinics focus on skills and drills for developing fundamentals and foundation for basketball in a fun environment. London and Maddie have participated in the Saturday morning clinics for the past two years and had a blast.  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 $125 per child. Children 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. Teams are formed in a collaborative draft process with all the individual coaches based on the player evaluations (Nov 17) and prior year coaches evaluations with a desire to obtain parity. Drafts are monitored by league commissions and/or Mendham Patriots Board member. Cost is $150 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).

All travel registrations should be submitted before October 20th. Only registered players will be permitted to try out for the travel teams. If you are interested in submitting your name for Travel Coach you must complete an on- line Travel Coach Application form before October 2nd.
