GTRC Teams participate in the Community Basketball League (CBL). More information about the CBL is available at CBLbasketball.org. The CBL uses a birthday cutoff date of Sept. 1, so the players’ age on Sept. 1 will dictate age eligibility (for example, a child who is 10 years old on September 1 would be eligible for the 10U level). The CBL does not offer different “levels” of play (i.e. there is no A level and B level) and therefore all efforts are made to balance the level of teams playing at the same age level.
Boys and Girls teams are offered from 9U Instructional and 9U Competitive levels up through 15U Competitive based on evaluations and skill level. Participants should be at least 8 years old by September 1, 2013. Players attempting to “play up” a level may be required to participate in an evaluation to determine eligibility. The numr of players at each level will also be taken into account. The 9U Instructional level is typically made up of 3rd graders who have played basketball previously but may be appropriate for 4th graders who have not played before (provided they have not turned 10 years old by Sept. 1).
Greenwich Recreation also offer Hoop kids (age 6) and 3 on 3 for ages 7 & 8 levels for kids not eligible to play at the CBL level
