Bath Area Youth Basketball 2021-2022
Player development and skills are the main focus of our Youth Basketball program. This program is designed for children 2nd through the 6th grade within the RSU #1, West Bath & Georgetown District.
Boys and girls are placed on teams and will participate in practices and games each week. Good sportsmanship, team play, individual skill development and fun will be emphasized.
From Bath City Hall:
Beginning Monday, January 10, 2022, at the request of the City Council and for the safety of our employees and residents, people (ages 2 and older) will be required to wear masks in all City buildings due to continued high levels of COVID-19 cases in our community. This includes everyone, regardless of vaccination status.
Masks will now be REQUIRED for Bath Youth Basketball programs at all facilities; Bath Rec, Bath YMCA, Brunswick Landing YMCA.
This policy will be evaluated weekly and removed when Sagadahoc County’s community transmission level drops below “High”.
Due to Freeport and Brunswick teams requiring masks at all times, when Bath is playing a Brunswick or Freeport team, regardless of location, mask will be Required for players, spectators, and coaches. With 3 towns working together we have decided to follow the strictest guidelines when playing opposing teams. For example- If a 5-6 teams is playing at the Landing YMCA against a Freeport or Brunswick team, Masks will be required, for everyone. If a Bath team is playing another Bath team at the Landing YMCA, masks are highly recommended. Same goes for 3-4 grade girls.
If we can all work together on masking and respecting other communities guidelines we can hopefully alleviate some concerns and have a successful basketball season!
*Teams are formed based on the number of coach's available. Once teams are full registration will go to a Wait List. If you are interested in coaching please contact Dana at DDelahanty@cityofbath.com.
Registration wait list will begin November 19th or when teams become full.
Practice days are determined by coaches availability. We understand that kids are involved in other activities so please let us know if a certain day of the week does not work for your family. We will do our best to accommodate other activities, travel issues, and siblings.
Please bring your own basketball if you already have one. Extra balls will be provided to coaches.
