The Norwell Basketball Association (NBA) offers Norwell boys in grades 4 through 8 the opportunity to play competitive basketball against local towns. The NBA will be fielding at least two (2) teams for each grade.
Depending on turnout and participation the NBA may expand each grade to three (3) or more teams provided there is sufficient interest from players and competent coaching is available.
This year we will be using a new registration program that will allow you to register your child, pay participation fees, execute waivers and required paperwork, and enter your child’s uniform size. In order for your child to participate in the NBA evaluation process and team formation we must have his registration complete. Registration is currently available.
Player evaluations will take place October 21, 2019, October 22, 2019 and October 23, 2019 at the Norwell High School gymnasium (see below for grades and times). Please check our website, social media, and future editions of the Cole, Vinal, and Norwell Middle School publications for more details.
The evaluation process consists of having disinterested parties complete assessments based on skill level displayed at the evaluation. No person who completes player assessments is allowed to have a son participating in that particular evaluation. The season-ending player assessments from coaches in the prior year will also be considered when appropriate. The goal is to have players rostered on teams based on their skill level and in a manner that would benefit the player, the team, and the program. This process is not perfect but it is the best known method for forming competitive teams that can perform in the division they are ultimately placed in.
The registration fee will be $350.00 until October 19, 2019. There will be a $20.00 late fee assessed after October 19, 2019. The fees include the cost for new uniforms, pays all charges for the various leagues our teams compete in, pays for all practice time, and pays for every team’s entry into at least two tournaments. The NBA is not designed to generate a profit and it would not be possible without volunteers we rely on every year.
There are scholarships available to those in need. If you cannot afford the registration fee please contact us. In order to ensure each child has their uniform for the start of the season, we recommend registering as early as possible.
