PVJSA 2021 WINTER BASKETBALL LEAGUE
Registration is now open for the 2021 PVJSA Basketball Season!
PVJSA could not be more excited to announce that Registration for all four PVJSA Divisions is now open: Juniors Select (2nd); Juniors (3rd/4th); Seniors (5th/6th); and Masters (7th/8th). The season kicks off in early January.
We anticipate record levels of interest in our Winter League as kids will finally be able to hit the courts again this season. Register today as spots will fill up quickly! Masks will be required for all athletes, coaches, spectators, and officials working the games.
We will send more information around evaluation dates for each age group. We will have experienced basketball coaches evaluating the kids to determine each player’s skillset. More information on times will be sent out closer to the date. We are exploring moving away from a formal draft format used in previous years to assist our volunteer parent/caregiver coaches with focusing only on coaching, encourage more volunteer participation, and to ensure teams are more balanced.
PVJSA is pleased to announce the launch of Juniors Select, an exclusive offering for second graders. Second graders who participate in the Juniors Select division will get the same PVJSA experience as the older kids (PVJSA uniforms/practices/games with game clock and a referee). The focus of Juniors Select is to teach basketball fundamentals to our second graders to prepare them for playing basketball at the next levels. Each team will practice for 20-25 minutes before playing against their opponents.
We believe that this experience will provide a better overall experience for second graders who previously felt uncomfortable playing with 3rd and 4th graders in the Juniors division.
As always, coaches are crucial to our leagues. Please let us know if you are able to coach your child's team this Winter. You will be able to register as a coach on the registrations page.
Thank you in advance!
PVJSA ALL-STAR GAMES ARE BACK! Each week, two players from each team will be identified as players of the game. At the end of the season, two players from each team will be chosen to play in one of two all-star games. In order to recognize kids who worked hard during the season but may not have been selected for the all-star games, PVJSA is pleased to announce the new ALL-Star Skills Competition, which will be held at the end of the season immediately following the playoff games. We believe that this will be a fun way to send off more kids into the offseason and into our spring clinics and summer programming.
We cannot be more excited to see the kids back in the gyms playing for bragging rights!
