WHBA's 9th Season Begins

The Worthington Hooker Basketball Association (WHBA) begins its 9th season! (November 2014 - March 2015)
We hope your child brought our handout home with the following information attached to necessary forms. If not, please read this entire post:

Boys and girls of all skill levels are encouraged to participate in intramural play, weekday evenings at the Hooker School gym on Whitney Avenue, to come wearing sneakers and to bring their own basketballs (with names printed on them) if possible.

Register by November 20th, 2014. Cost: $30, pay online or by check. Each player receives a WHBA T-shirt and is invited to participate in our season-ending awards ceremony/pizza party.

There will be Season Kickoff Clinics where your child can register for the coming season, have fun, and learn some basketball basics:

Grades K-2: Monday, Nov. 10th, 5:30-6:45 p.m.

Grades 3-4: Thursday, Nov. 13th, 6-7:30 p.m.

Grades 5-8: Wednesday, Nov. 12th, 6-7:30 p.m.

Grades 5-8: Friday, Nov. 14th, 6-7:30 p.m.

Then, Regular Schedule for Practices and Intramural Play will begin the following week. Practice will not be held on when there is no school that day (i.e. snow days, holidays) unless announced otherwise. To see the regular practice schedule for this year, click on the "Practice Schedules" link in the right-hand sidebar of this page.

Travel Team participation (with New Haven City Parks and Rec) will depend on age groups and coaches--details are on the way. For more information, email questions to:
