North Hunterdon Girls Basketball Club

The “North Hunterdon Girls Basketball Club” (NHGBC) was established in 2014 and is now in its second year. The NHGBC, in association with the North Hunterdon Lions Basketball Club (NHLBC) has been developed to be a feeder program for the North Hunterdon High School Girls Basketball program and has the full support of the NHHS Girls Varsity Basketball Coach - Mark Franzyshen, NHHS Assistant Basketball Coach - Marielle Thorsen and the entire coaching staff. The program is open to all sending districts of North Hunterdon High School which includes Union Township, Clinton Township, Town of Clinton, Franklin Township, Bethlehem Township and Lebanon Borough. The goal is to develop young talent into a single team for each age group incorporating all the North Hunterdon High School sending districts allowing the players to participate against the best in the area and to develop their individual and team skills and abilities over time to prepare for an opportunity to play in High School.

The North Hunterdon Girls Basketball Club (NHGBC) will be holding tryouts for the 2015/2016 winter basketball season for 6th, 7th and 8th grade girls teams in October 2015. These teams will participate in highly competitive basketball leagues throughout the area. The NHHS coaches will be involved in the program helping to drive the same philosophy and offensive & defensive approaches they use with the girls high school team and will be running the tryouts with the HS staff performing the evaluation of the players for team selection. We will be participating in the Garden State Basketball League for the Winter 2015/16 season. We also hope to play in tournaments such as the Holiday Tournament in Readington. Practices are expected to begin in early November with the season running from early December to March followed by playoffs in mid-March. All practices and home games will be held at North Hunterdon High School.
