LATE REGISTRATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED THROUGH FRIDAY, DECEMBER 9TH!

The "Brown Box of Shame" at 39 Oneida Avenue was overflowing on December 1st as 200 registrations were received in a timely fashion for this year's rec basketball season.  This year, in what many Biblical Scholars view as a sign of the Apocalypse, both Peggy Barton AND MaryAlyce Turner, submitted their childrens' registrations prior to the December 1st deadline.  This is the year, however, when the both the Cleveland Cavaliers and Chicago Cubs won championships, Donald Trump was elected President and England left the European Union, so the chances of Peggy and MaryAlyce BOTH handing in their registrations on time isn't THAT odd, I guess.  Anyway, our crack staff here at the Oceanport Basketball Association has finished entering all of the data from the registrations that were submitted on time and, based upon our crack staff's free time schedule, we will be accepting late registrations through midnight on FRIDAY, DECEMBER 9, 2016.  After that, the only way a registration will be accepted is if there is an available roster spot.

So, if you know of anybody who has NOT signed up their son or daughter for this year's rec basketball season, tell them to download the registration form from this website and have it hand delivered to the Brown Box of Shame by midnight on FRIDAY, DECEMBER 9, 2016.

The 2016-2017 Recreation Basketball season will begin in early January of 2017.  Registration forms are due on or before DECEMBER 1, 2016. THIS DOES NOT MEAN YOU HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL MIDNIGHT ON DECEMBER 1ST TO HAND IT IN!

A registration form can be downloaded by clicking HERE.  

If you would like to know more about the particulars of the rec basketball program, please see the registration form or click on the "OBA REC & Knights Overview" tab in the main menu on the left had side of the screen.

Registration forms and checks (payable to Oceanport Basketball Association) should be mailed to: Jay Coffey, 39 Oneida Avenue, Oceanport, NJ 07757. Children who reside in Monmouth Beach, Oceanport, Sea Bright and West Long Branch, whether they attend public, private or parochial school or are home schooled, are invited to play.   Additionally, students who do not live in the Shore Regional sending district, but who attend public school in Monmouth Beach, Oceanport or West Long Branch are invited to play. Children will receive a uniform tee shirt and once per week practice instruction. Children in grades 3 through 8 will play an 8 or 9 game schedule.  All 3rd and 4th grade games will be played on Saturdays at Monmouth Beach School.  5th/6th and 7th/8th grade games will be played on Saturdays at either Frank Antonides School or Maple Place School. Each child is guaranteed to play at least half of each game. Each team will have a regularly scheduled one hour practice session at either Frank Antonides School, Maple Place School or Wolf Hill School. The practice sessions will be set prior to the start of the season by each team’s coach.  Rookie League teams (2nd graders only; co-ed teams) practice once a week at Wolf Hill School and play one game on the big court at Maple Place at the end of the season.

NOTES:

1. Grade 4 & 6 boys and girls may be registered, at your option, in the next older division.  However, once teams are selected, players must play in that division for the season.

2. Once teams are selected, late registrants will be placed on teams IF, as is emphasized at the player draft, such addition will ensure continued balance in that division.

3.  For the 3rd or more child registered by a family, the fee is $10.00 per child. Children of active members of the Oceanport Fire Department and 1st Aid Squads are exempt from registration fees. 

4. WE WILL BE CONDUCTING ONE DAY BASKETBALL CLINICS THROUGHOUT THE YEAR THIS SEASON AND WE WILL BE OFFERING THESE CLINICS FOR CHILDREN IN GRADES K THROUGH 8! MORE INFORMATION TO FOLLOW.
