BASKETBALL


    2022-2023 WINTER PROGRAMS


    • Winter Rec | Grades K-2

      We hope this is where your child’s basketball journey begins. The main goal of our youngest age groups is to develop a love and connection to the sport while gaining some valuable individual skills that will be the foundation of their abilities as they continue to play. Players will progress through these age groups primarily experiencing fun games and exercises, using their imagination, developing body & hand-eye coordination and getting a base understanding of basketball fundamentals. Players receive a uniform shirt as part of their registration but you need to order their size - uniform order link below.

    • Winter Rec | Grades 3&4 Boys & Girls

      Players will be introduced to a new ball size (27.5) and will continue to hone their skills. The goal will continue to be based on having fun and developing a passion for the game. Ideally, at the end of their program players will be able to pass & catch, dribble with both hands, shoot with proper form and be comfortable on the court with or without the ball. Players will participate in 3 on 3 play on 8 foot hoops to support the development of proper shooting technique and promote lots of touches on the ball. Coaches will act as referees for games on Saturdays. When the regular season concludes, we anticipate that there could be opportunities for tryout-style travel tournament play in March (dependent on coaching and local tournament availability and player enrollment) which would be a separate enrollment. Players will need purchase a uniform in addition to their program registration - link to order below.

    • Winter Rec | Grades 5&6 Boys & Girls

      Players will make another jump to a bigger ball (28.5) but will still be encouraged to continue to build their individual basketball skills. In addition to developing their individual skill sets, players will begin learning some team concepts and tactics. Basic offensive and defensive concepts and principles will be approached in an introduction to team concepts that will be built on throughout their playing careers. When the regular season concludes, we anticipate that there could be opportunities for tryout-style travel tournament play in March (dependent on coaching and local tournament availability and player enrollment) which would be a separate enrollment.

    • Winter Rec | Grades 7&8 Boys & Girls

      Players at all levels of the ability spectrum will continue to build individual skills in a fun environment. At this age practices will also introduce players to more team tactics for both offense and defense. The girls will re-enter the Lamprey River League this season as their approach is now more in line with our team creation philosophy. Each team will compete in league games on the weekend along with practice sessions during the week. The goal is for all players to be comfortable and able to play in any basketball situation regardless of the offensive or defensive setting. Players will learn how to adapt and play the game along utilizing the individual skill developed at the younger age groups. Players will need purchase a uniform in addition to their program registration - link to order below.

        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 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.
