Congratulations to the 2015-2016 Champions Fever and Mercury

Thursday March 24th was Championship Night and marked the end of our In-Town Recreational season. 

The night began with the 3rd/4th Grade Championship between Sky and Fever. Sky was coached by Owen Roche, Jeff Roche and Eric Robinson. Fever was coached by John Conroy and Jon Selig. It was a very exciting game. Congratulations to Team Fever, our 2015-2016 3rd/4th Grade Champions.

The second game of the night was the 5th/6th Grade Championship between Mystics and Mercury. Mystics was coached by Eric Robinson and Kevin Beatrice. Mercury was coached by Alex and Nick Bejarano and Frank Driscoll. Great effort by both teams. Congratulations to Team Mercury, our 2015-2016 5th/6th Grade Champions.

The night concluded with Crazy Ball for the 7th and 8th Grade girls. The girls really seemed to enjoy themselves

 

 

 

Halifax Girls Basketball at Boston University

The Halifax Girls Basketball Program visited Boston University on Saturday February 13th to watch some exciting Division One basketball. Boston University was a great host and the girls were able to participate in the pregame player entrance tunnel. In addition, two of our players were able to participate in a shootout between quarters, while the other players rebounded for them. The shootout participants each received a BU jersey.

The girls really seemed to enjoy the event. For more pictures, check out the photo albums on the menu to the left

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)
