AGE GROUPS
• Rookies: 5-6 year olds
• Minors: 7-9 year olds
• Majors: 10-12 year olds

The cut-off date for each age group is September 30, meaning the age that your child was on September 30 is the age group that they will compete in. 

LOCATION
• All groups will play at Henry Wilson Memorial School

COURT LENGTH & HOOP HEIGHT
• Rookies: Half court, lowered rims
• Minors: Half court or Full court (depends on number of participants), 10’ rims
• Majors: Full court, 10’ rims

COSTS
• Rookies: $30 Farmington-Middleton residents / $40 for non-resident
• Minors: $40 Farmington-Middleton residents / $50 for non-resident
• Majors: $50 Farmington-Middleton residents / $60 for non-resident

*Extra money from non-residents is going to go directly toward improvements at Henry Wilson*

SCHEDULE
Opening day is set for Saturday, November 23rd. The first two weeks will be strictly Skills & Drills sessions so we can evaluate the talent-level of each child. Then, teams will be assigned and game play will commence on Saturday, December 7. A full schedule will be posted once teams are set.

Each age group will progressively play more basketball. The Rookies just go on Saturdays only, while Minors and Majors will have a midweek day (Wednesday or Thursday) on select weeks throughout the season as well for Skills & Drills. The Skills & Drills sessions may not be team specific, just specific to each group (ie: Minor boys, Major girls, etc.)

NIGHT GAMES
The 2019 Night Games were a big hit as we rolled out the red carpet for the biggest night of the season. We will do the same in 2020 as players will be introduced prior to their game and Skills Competitions will be held in between games for the Minors and Majors. You won't want to miss out on this highlight night for your youngster.

TRAVEL TEAMS
Our “Travel Teams” will now be called The Farmington 500 All-Stars. For these All-Star teams, we will schedule 4-8 regular-season games for each age group and play in 2-3 jamborees/tournaments with 1-2 practices/week. Tryouts dates and pricing for these teams will be announced at a later date. Parents of players on the travel teams will be required to work at least two hours at jamborees or tournaments throughout the season.
