The Minor (7-9 years old) and Major (10-12 years old) age groups will now feature one-hour Skills & Drills sessions each week, in addition to the normal Saturday sessions. Check out more of the fine details below and please reach out to first-year Basketball Director K.J. Cardinal with any questions at [email protected].

Schedule
Handbook

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, 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 in the Henry Wilson gym*

SCHEDULE
Opening day is set for Saturday, November 24th. 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 week 3 (Saturday, December 8). A full schedule will be posted once teams are set.

Each age group will progressively play more basketball. The Rookies just go on Saturdays, while Minors and Majors will have a midweek day as well for Skills & Drills. The exact mid-week day may vary from week-to-week, but will be posted at least one week prior. The Skills & Drills sessions won’t be team specific, just specific to each group (ie: Minor boys, Major girls, etc.)

• Rookies: 9 Days of Basketball (2 Skills & Drills sessions to start, then 7 games)*
• Minors: 17 Days of Basketball (9 Skills & Drills sessions, plus 8 games)*
• Majors: 21 Days of Basketball (12 Skills & Drills sessions, plus 9 games)*

NIGHT GAMES
The 2019 Night Games will be bigger and better than ever! The red carpet will be rolled out for the big night 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. We will no longer be playing in the Suncook Valley League as this conflicts with our House League schedule. For these All-Star teams, we will schedule 8-10 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.
