House Basketball

The OBGC House Basketball program provides a forum for boys and girls to play organized basketball with the aim of teaching sound basketball fundamentals and good sportsmanship and, above all else, having a good time. The program, which is open to youngsters from grades two through twelve, consists of a boys’ league and a girls’ league. The K/1st grade clinic will be run by Tim Harwood from Harwood Basketball and will be fairly limited so enroll early to guarantee a spot.
Registration Note
The boys’ league offers options from K-12th grade: As we did last season we will attempt to separate Pee-Wee and Midget boys into individual grades i.e separating 4th and 5th and 6th and 7th. If the numbers do not work we will combine 4th and 5th in a pee-wee group and 6th and 7th in a midget group.

Clinic- Boys and Girls K and 1st
Instructional Boys – Grades 2 and 3
Pee-Wee – Grades 4 and 5
Midgets – Grades 6 and 7
Juniors – Grades 8 and 9
Seniors – Grades 10, 11 and 12

The girls’ league offers options from K-12th grade and has a total of five divisions although the Junior and Senior girls divisions are usually combined:

Clinic- Boys and Girls K and 1st
Instructional Girls – Grades 2nd and 3rd
Pony – Grades 4 and 5
Midgets – Grades 6 and 7
Juniors – Grades 8 and 9
Seniors- Grades 10 – 12
There is much more information on house basketball on the house basketball page.
