Montpelier Youth Sports

Youth Basketball (K-6th grade); Registration Open. Deadline to Register is Friday, Nov. 4th. 

It is time once again to sign up for winter sports, and the Montpelier Recreation Department is opening up registration for K-6 Youth Basketball. This volunteer-run youth basketball program is an opportunity for 5 to 12 year olds (K-6th Grade) to build self-esteem and have fun in a cooperative play environment. This program is open to players of all abilities. Participants will learn the basic skills: dribbling, passing, shooting, offense & defense, to use them in game like situations.

Deadline to sign up is November 4th @ 5:00pm. It is important to register before the deadline so we can properly schedule for the correct amount of teams. Having the correct amount of players per team ensures playing time for all players.
