 Program Overview 

Averill Park Youth Basketball has 2 programs:  Hoop Camp and Travel. 

FUNdamentals Hoop Camp / House League:

For those interested in participating and working on individual fundamentals with an emphasis on fun, Saturday hoop camp sessions are a good fit.   Hoop camp is Saturday only from early November to early February for all interested boys and girls 1st through 6th grade.   Sessions run 75-90 minutes per grade in the Algonquin Middle School gyms.  Grades 3 thru 6 hoop camps will incorporate a house league where games are played to provide a competitive “in-house” environment for kids to apply some skills they have learned.   Teams will be assigned by week 3 of hoop camp and games to start thereafter.

            1st and 2nd grade -- FREE basketball and FREE t-shirt

            3rd through 6th grade -- FREE reversible jersey

            All -  FREE clinic - High School and Middle School coaches to run hoop camp session for a day.


 For those who want additional competition in a team setting, travel teams are an additional option.  Participation in travel requires at least a 75% participation in hoop camp.  Travel entails hoop camp on Saturdays, 1-2 team practices a week and games on weekends. 

Travel tryouts usually occur in late September or early Oct for the season to come.
