Coed Basketball Leagues

Kindergarten / 1st Grade Clinic League - Coed

The Kindergarten/First Grade Clinic league will consist of 2 one hour clinics per week.  The first part of the clinic will focus on skill development followed by a scrimmage with another team.  The League will run from early November through February.  Practices/games are held Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings.

2nd / 3rd Grade League - Coed

This coed league is an introduction to competitive Basketball via instructional team practices and 5 on 5 full court play games.  A strong emphasis is placed on teaching and learning basic fundamental Basketball Skills (dribbling, passing, shooting, etc.),   Basketball Rules, Teamwork, Sportsmanship, and “having fun”.     

Player evaluations will be held following registration and prior to the start of the season and are utilized by the League Coordinator to form even/balanced teams at the onset of the season in the interest of fair play.  Therefore, requests for specific coaches, teams, teammates, etc. will be honored to the best of the league's ability, but cannot be guaranteed.   All players will receive considerable playing time during games (based on the league rules each child will play a minimum of 1/2 of each game). This league will keep scores during games and use referees.  The season will involve Round Robin play and a tournament at the end of the season (playoffs).   The Player Evaluation date will be held in early November.  All registered participants are strongly recommended to attend.  Parents should make every effort to set the date aside. Each participant will be given a 30 minute scheduled eval time.  Players will be sized for jerseys at this time as well.

Teams will have one practice and one game per week.  The League is scheduled to meet for games on Saturday mornings with practices held once a week on Thursdays. However, practice day subject to change based on permit approvals and gym space availability.   Beginning in November, teams will meet once per week for practice sessions only, and then will move to one practice and one game (Thursdays and Saturdays) per week for December thru February.  The league culminates in a double-elimination playoff tournament and all-star game at the end of February.

Players will receive numbered moisture-wick jerseys.  All Head Coaches are ASEP certified.  Our baskets are set at 8' and we use a youth-sized 27' basketball.

Girls Basketball Leagues

Girls basketball update  

For the winter basketball season Elkridge girls’ basketball will join forces with the Savage Boys & Girls Club (SBGC) and Howard County Recreation & Parks (HCRP) to form a Howard County alliance league.  For the past two seasons we have played exhibition games against teams from these leagues.  These exhibitions were a positive addition to our program, and we hope to build on that experience going forward.  

Age groups are 7-9 & 10-14.   

We offer an in-house instructional league for girls age 7-9.  The league is non-competitive (no standings are kept) and the coaches serve as referees for the games. 

Player evaluations and team formation will take place in after Thanksgiving.  Practices will start after teams are formed and continue until winter break.  

Games will begin in January.  The season will be 8 or 9 games, played on Saturdays.  In addition, there will be end of season playoffs.  All games will be played in Howard County.
