Program: Littleton 4-on-4 Rec Basketball
Eligibility: Boys and Girls in 4th through 8th grade for school year 2019-2020
Location: Littleton Middle and High School
Days and Times: One weeknight practice a week and one Saturday game between 10am and 5pm. Practices start in mid-November and games start in early December. Season ends around February vacation.
Format: This is an in-town recreational league and all registrants will be assigned to a team. Teams are grouped in Divisions as follows: Boys 4th / 5thgrade, Girls 4th/ 5thgrade, Boys 6th-8thgrade and Girls 6th-8th.
Games will be played 4-4 to open up the floor and create more space to shoot and score. The goal is to "let the kids play" and focus on recreation and participation. Mandatory subsitutions are used to create equal playing time. No zone defense or full-court pressing is allowed. By de-emphasizing competition and strategy, the coaches are really just there to supervise and be positive with the players. The emphasis is on letting the players play and figure out the game themselves.
Open to: Boys & Girls
In Grades: 4 to 8 for 2019-20 School year
