Chatham Recreation Youth Basketball
Youth basketball is offered to Chatham residents in 3rd through 8th grades. Grades 3 through 6 are coached by parents, while the combined 7th/8th grade leagues are coached by Chatham High School players. Sessions are held on Saturdays running from December – February. The sessions consist of a short practice followed by a game.
- 3rd grade is an introductory and developmental league, with the early weeks of the season heavily focused on developing important fundamental skills. Scrimmages and games are introduced as the season progresses.
- The 4th grade league introduces more organized games but without playoffs.
- The 5th/6th grade boys and girls leagues are more competitive, with standings and playoffs. There are also a few modified rules to encourage balanced participation and skill development.
- The 7th/8th grade boys and girls program is the most competitive league, run by the CHS head coaches. Regular season games are on Saturday mornings. Playoffs are weeknights and weekends at the end of February. Teams are coached by Chatham High School players, a Chatham tradition.
