Once again in remembrance of John Walker and all that he did for youth sports in Southampton and specifically for what he did for basketball in the community, the summer/fall league will be held in his honor. This will be our 22nd season. Anyone who has participated in this league in the past knows that this is a highly competitive league. Last year, there were over 800 participants.
For the boys and girls we will have 5 grade divisions. 3rd/4th, 5th/6th, 7th/8th, 9th/10th and 11th/12th.
The 3rd/4th grade games are on Saturdays from 4pm to 6pm. The fee for 3rd/4th grade division is $125.00 for 10 weeks. The 3rd/4th grade division includes skills and drills for 1 hr plus 1 hr of game time. League start date is Sat Sept 10th for 3rd/4th grade division which is the only coed division in the league. Bring your own basketball each week for drills.
For all other grades 5th thru 12th, the league begins the weekend starting Aug 26th. The 5th , 6th, , 7th & 8th grade boys will play on Friday nights. (Please note that last year the 5th/6th and 7th/8th boys divisions were beyond capacity so we had to play one game on Sunday late morning-early afternoon in addition to the Friday night games.) Each team took a turn playing a game on Sunday. The 9th thru 12th grade boys division plays on Sunday evenings. The 5th and 6th grade girls will play at 7pm on Monday. The 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th girls will play early afternoon games on Sundays. The 11th and 12th grade girls will play late afternoon on Sundays. Please note that if the league needs to expand to a third day of games, we are planning on using Saturdays from 4pm - 6pm. All games should be played at our Renegades Kelly Bolish Gym at 2950 Turnpike Dr., Hatboro, PA 19040 but if needed we will use Somerton Youth Center or Maureen Welch ES in Richboro.
We do not allow 6th grade girls teams to enter as teams in the 5th/6th grade girls only division because of Gym space on Monday nights and subsequently because we would not have enough competition. We only allow entry of teams in the girls and boys 7th/8th grade division if we have enough teams to allow for competitive games. Full teams can enter for both boys and girls in the 9th/10th and 11th/12th grade divisions. We do not allow teams to enter in the 5th/6th grade boys division because we simply do not have enough gym space on Friday nights and/or Sunday mornings (11AM). Teams that enter as teams must have a minimum of 10 players. The maximum cost per team is $1,400.00. Our preference for this league is to have the players enter as individuals so they can develop their 1 on 1 skills. Players that only play on one team with the same coach are usually utilized to play a certain roll. Playing on a different team with a different coach hopefully allows the player to expand their individual contribution, play with different players and change their perspective of what they bring to a team environment.
Every player will be required to play in his or her appropriate division. The cost of registration for 2016 will be $140.00 for 5th grade & up and $125.00 for 3rd/4th grade. Any Renegade player wishing to participate in the Fall League must re-register with the club for the upcoming year (2016/2017) at this time by mailing in club registration form and fee. Non-Renegade players do not have to pay a separate club registration fee. If a player is capable & approved to play in the next older division an additional fee of $100.00 will be required. Please forward a separate check for $100.00 in case there is no room in the older division you wish to enter. Keep in mind if you request to play up in an older division, you must also play your own age. If a player plays in two divisions their primary responsibility is to play in their appropriate grade division and they will not be able to play in the older game if they fail to attend their own age game each week. The fee covers the cost of the gym rental, tank tops, referee fees, and team awards for 1st and 2nd place winners. Please make checks payable to Renegades and mail to: 858 Street Rd., Southampton, PA 18966. Please do not send a check without a Walker League form. You may use the registration form enclosed or print one off of the website: www.renegadesbasketball.com.
