[ARCHIVED] Register now for Portland Recreation Basketball Leagues and Mini Clinics

Basketball

Registration is now open for the Gallagher (K- 3rd Grade) and Caldwell (4th-5th Grade) Basketball Leagues and Mini Clinics. You can register online here, or visit our webpage for more information on registering for these fun filled, exciting Basketball Leagues!

Recently we received an encouraging response from a survey sent out to our basketball families which indicated an overwhelming support for conducting our leagues this year. We will be opening registration on Monday October 5, 2020 via Community Pass or by calling the office at 808-5400 to arrange an appointment.  

You will have the opportunity to sign up by school for both of our leagues. As of now, our 4th/5th Caldwell League will start practices November 2, 2020, and our Gallagher K-3 will start in late January. Please view our 2020-2021 Basketball Guidelines which are a living document and subject to change at any time.  Please read the guidelines before signing up. The guidelines will be updated as we receive information from the US CDC and Community Sports Guidelines from Maine DHHS. If our leagues are unable to operate, you will be notified and fully refunded. We are hopeful for an update sometime in October as the State evaluates indoor programs. We will adjust our program to follow the guidelines and provide the best experience possible for your children. 

 In the past, we have had teams built by school, and played other Portland Elementary Schools for games on Saturdays; currently this is not an option.  We can group children together by school, and do practices and intrasquad scrimmages in smaller cohorts. If necessary we may move to a skills, drills, and practice format which will give your child an assortment of  fundamental skills.   

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out! recreation@portlandmaine.gov
