2019-20 Basketball Program
Welcome to the 2019-20 Abernethy Basketball Program!
Please note that leagues are working a little different than they have in years past, so please be sure to read through all of the information to make sure you are registering your player for the correct league.
Kindergarten Through 2nd Grade:
All players from grades K–2 will play in the Abernethy league, regardless of gender.
In order to register for our K–2 league, you will need to do two things:

Registration will open October 1 and will close at midnight on November 2, 2019. No late registrations will be accepted. Teams will be formed by November 16.
Your child does not need to be enrolled at Abernethy in order to participate in this community program.
Your child will be placed on a team based on their age and availability. No assessment is necessary.
Practices for K-2 start in December and will be once a week at Abernethy before 6pm.
All teams will be coached by parent volunteers, so please consider helping coach (indicate your interest on the registration form). No basketball experience is necessary. Each team will also need a team parent.
Starting in January, we will play games on Fridays before 6pm. The league will end in early March.
Games are played on 8 foot hoops with modified rules that support development of all players.
If you have a 2nd grade girl who can play on 10 foot hoops and is ready for real basketball rules, you can come to Assessments for 3rd+ grade (assessments were on October 8).
If you have a 2nd grade boy who can play on 10 foot hoops and is ready for real basketball rules, you should consider registering for the Cleveland Jr. Warriors Rec Team (see the Cleveland Warriors Basketball page for info).
