    • fall skills | Grades 3-8

      The fall is the perfect time for some low commitment basketball training while playing traditional fall sports. Our skills program for grades 3-8 has been scheduled on a day that should limit conflicts with other sports to encourage players to knock the rust off in preparation for the winter season. Whether your player is new to game or a serious player, this focus on individual skills will help everyone get more comfortable on the court before the winter season. 

      This program will only be successful if volunteer coaches are identified. Please denote your ability to offer coaching support during the registration process or Email Matthew Glode to let him know you're interested in helping coach one of the age groups.

    • Winter Basketball Grades K-8| 2022-2023

      Your volunteer advisory group (AG) is already hard at work planning the winter season. After 2 years of limited or no basketball, ORYA's basketball program views this year as a chance to start fresh and re-energize the local basketball community. 

      The biggest hurdle anticipated this year, besides gym space, is finding enough coaches in the community. Through the last two years, much of our coaching support network has either aged out or moved away from basketball. It's time for a new group of volunteer coaches to come forward and help shape the future of the program!

      If you've never coached before, no problem! We are already working with other local communities to develop a regional recreational coaching education session and investigating practice planning curriculums.

      If you know your player is interested in playing this winter and you are interested in helping in a head or assistant coaching role please LET US KNOW!

      Why is there a different fee for Durham, Lee and Madbury residents?
      When ORYA receives funding from the communities we serve, it directly subsidizes the participation of our 'non-competitive', recreational programs for members of that specific community. The differences between each residency-rate is a direct reflection of the expected or actual funding from each community in the budgeted year. If one community has a lower player fee, it means that community has chosen to reduce your participation fee in youth, recreational athletic programs. Travel-based programs are not subsidized by town funding.
