Garden State Basketball League

 

Dear Coaches:


SEASON WILL BEGIN MONDAY, DECEMBER 2


The Garden State Basketball League is entering its 27th season. Last year, 295 teams encompassing twenty three divisions competed with more than 3000 players participating.

Within the boys league there will be 4th through 8th grades in the American, National, and Central Divisions. Within the girls league there will be 4th through 8th grades in the American and National Divisions. Some towns may have enough players to enter two teams within a division. The fees this year will be $135.00 per team entered.

Depending upon the number of teams in each division, each team will play 10-14 regular season games. In addition, single elimination playoffs will be held in late February and early March.

Trophies will be provided and awarded within each division as follows:
* Individual player trophies (12 Maximum)for the first place team (regular season)
* Individual player trophies (12 Maximum)for BOTH the first and second place playoff finishers.

Towns with both 5th and 6th grade teams, and 7th and 8th grade will have home games scheduled back to back. In the 4th grade league, games must be scheduled as doubleheaders with another team in the boy or girl divisions. A single game at one site will not be scheduled unless there are unusual circumstances. 

As always, a 4th grade team will not be able to participate in the 5th grade league and a 5th grade team will not be able to participate in the 6th grade league, etc. A team that was dominating last year may choose to move up to an upper division.

Go to leaguelineup.com/gsb to find an updated version of the league rules under the tab titled "Handouts." You should note that these rules differ from high school basketball rules.

Entrance fees and proof of insurance must be received by November 12. Schedules will be developed and distributed by late November for all December games for BOTH BOYS AND GIRLS. Games will begin Monday, December 2nd. The last scheduled game for December will be Friday, December 20th. Games will begin again on January 3rd, 2014.
