Season: Our recreational and travel team programs typically run from early November until the second week of March.  Evaluations are held mid October in order to form balanced teams.  Each team will have a scheduled weekly practice followed by a game at the end of the week.  Games are played on Saturdays between 8 AM and 4 PM in the high school gymnasiums, with game times varying by age division.

Practices: The times, frequency and locations of the practices are determined at the start of the season and assigned to a coach in the respective division.  Please note that children will be assigned to their coaches and practice times, and this is not selected by the parents.

Uniforms: Each player in the league receives a uniform t-shirt, which is not to be altered in any way.  Players should wear non-marring shoes, and and no watches, jewelry, or hair pins are allowed.

Gyms: All games will be played at Burrillville High School in either the dome or utility gyms, depending upon age.  Practices may be held in any of the school gyms from Monday to Thursday night, with the time and location depending upon the age division.

Travel Program

The travel program provides an opportunity for players to play teams from around New England in a competitive format.  These teams are generally made up of the higher skilled players per age grade level.  Tryouts are mandatory!!!

Teams: Teams are setup per grade (depending on interest).

Tryouts: Tryouts are mandatory and will be announced after recreation evaluations.

Season: For 2021/2022, we will be playing in 8 league games around RI with opportunities of additional games if the team makes the playoffs.  In addition, each team will play 2-3 additional tournaments.
