Youth Basketball Tips Off


It’s time to get back on the hardwood, and The Neighborhood House invites players in grades 1-5 to take part in another season of recreational basketball. The season kicks off with organizational practices on Wednesday, December 5th.

Players in grades 1-2 will meet in the Mt. Desert Elementary gymnasium right after school (3:15) until 4:00pm, and players in grades 3-5 will meet after school until 4:15pm. You can download a registration form here.

Players should plan on:

  • Wearing attire to school that is appropriate for athletic activity.

  • Wearing clean indoor gym shoe 

  • Packing a light snack and water bottle for practice

Volunteers are always greatly appreciated and a vital component in all of our youth sports activities. No previous coaching experience is required— just a willingness to help teach the basics of the game, sportsmanship, teamwork, and have a good time. If you are available to assist in any capacity, please feel free to email us.
