Youth Basketball programs are offered for all Hartford residents in grades Kindergarten through 6th grade.
The objective of HPRD's youth basketball program is to provide an opportunity for children to play basketball in an organized, competitive, yet recreational setting. Our emphasis will be teaching some basic skills and fundamentals, as well as teaching fair play, teamwork, and sportsmanship.
Each player will receive a team t-shirt.
All participants must provide a mouth guard and indoor sneakers.
Players in grades 3-6 will be split up into equally matched teams.
Practice and game times may vary between 5:00pm-8:00pm on weeknights, and 8:00am-1:00pm on Saturday’s, depending on the number of teams and gym availability.
For Grades 3rd-6th – Practices only through December. Teams will plan to play games in January/February. More details to be announced at a later date.
K-2 Basketball is an in-house program which divides participants into small groups during practices and focuses on skill development and fun.
