The purpose of the Monroe Township Hoops Association, Middlesex County shall be the promotion of the game of basketball for youth in Monroe Township, NJ within an environment that upholds the ideals of sportsmanship, scholarship and physical fitness.
The objectives of the program are to familiarize players (boys and girls) with the fundamentals of the sport, to provide the opportunity to participate in a supervised, organized and safety oriented manner, and to ensure that the participants remain free of any adult ambition not within the established philosophy of the Association.
The MTHA fulfills this objective by affording an opportunity to all resident children of Monroe Township, New Jersey, grades K-12, to play league basketball, either in the Recreation program or through the more competitive travel teams.
The Recreation program provides a competitive atmosphere, but one in which all participants play a significant portion of each game. The season begins in early January and ends in early April. Each Grade division games are scheduled on the same day of the week. Practices will be conducted and schedule by the teams head coach and available for Grades 4th and higher. The MTHA intends that all applicants who apply, in time, will be allowed to play. If our registration numbers exceed the gym space that we have, the league reserves the right to take registrants on a first come - first served basis
The objective of the travel program is to develop the skills and attributes of each player. Coaches are expected to conduct themselves in a manner consistent with this objective. While scheduling is up to the discretion of the coach, it is anticipated that teams will practice once or twice per week, and play a 30 to 40 game schedule.
