Program Overview

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 the week following Thanksgiving and is scheduled to end in March (weather permitting).

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.

For add'l information please see the Frequently Asked Questions page under the FORMS-HANDOUTS tab.


Recreation Program Information

The program runs from November - March. Each week the games will be scheduled in one of the hour slots. Grades 3rd and higher will be allotted one practice session per week depending on gym and coaches availability.

The recreation program determines divisions by grade, not by age or skill.  Players are required to register and play with the school grade for which they are enrolled during that season.

Below is the proposed division breakdown and time slots which are contingent on the number of registrant for each division.  Some divisions may be combined after registration has been completed.

Games can be scheduled weeknights Mon - Fri starting at 6,7 or 8 pm or Saturdays starting at 9 am and continuing hourly thru 8 pm.  While we make every reasonable effort to keep the games scheduled on the same day at about the same time that is not always possible.  Weather, gym availability, the number of teams and referee assignments may result in games played at different times or on different days.
