Games are played at the Halifax Elementary School gym. HGBL strives to keep it's registration rates low and affordable for all families in town and no girl will be denied the opportunity to participate due to financial hardship. HGBL also forms grade appropriate "travel" teams that will compete in the South Shore Girls Basketball league and in various tournaments.

Halifax Travel Basketball
Halifax Girls Basketball holds tryouts in October to form "Travel" teams for 4th-8th grades for the upcoming season. Girls must be a full-time resident of the town of Halifax to be eligible. Practices will start immediately after teams are selected.

The 4th grade team:

HGBL will form a 4th grade team if there is sufficient interest on a year-to-year basis.
Will play in an independent 4th grade travel league at the Kingston Sportcenter in Kingston, MA.
May (at coaches discretion) participate in a tournaments at an additional cost
Each player will use a team issued reversible-mesh jersey
Will practice on Sunday mornings

The 5th-8th Grade teams:

Will participate in the South Shore Girls Basketball league
May (at coaches discretion) participate in 2-3 tournaments at an additional cost
Each player will receive a full uniform; reversible team jersey, team shorts, team warm-up shirt
Will practice 1-2x per week depending on gym availibility

Travel players in grades 4-6 are required to also participate in our In-Town league. HGBL believes that players need to participate in both, as the In-Town games allow the travel players to work on "their game" and further practice and implement the advanced skills they are learning in travel. Playing time is not equal in Travel games, not every girl carries the ball, etc, but in the In-Town league they are the top players and will do more.

Girls in grades 7-8 are STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to also participate in our In-Town League. (For the same reasons as above)
