Registration InformationUpdated Friday August 31, 2018 by Mantua PTA Basketball.
The Mantua PTA Community Basketball League is a developmental organization which embraces student athletes with a wide variety of skill levels and emphasizes teamwork, skill development, and sportsmanship while teaching the fundamentals of basketball in a neighborly environment. All third through sixth grade, male and female students, are eligible for registration and encouraged to sign-up for this fun, supportive, community-based, basketball league which promotes sportsmanship and a love of the game.
Third through sixth grade students are eligible to register starting September 4, 2018. Late registration will begin October 2, 2018, and end October 18, 2018. NO registrations will be accepted after October 18, 2018. All eligible Mantua ES students are encouraged to register at www.mantuabasketball.org starting on Tuesday, September 4, 2018.
The school-based league is comprised of roughly 300 student athletes each year. Registrants are organized into four divisions: third and fourth grade boys, third and fourth grade girls, fifth and sixth grade boys, and fifth and sixth grade girls. Typically, the divisions are broken down to teams of 7-8 players, which have one evening practice session each week and one game each weekend. All games and practices are held in the Mantua ES’s gym. The season culminates in a fully-inclusive playoff period, including championship games in early March.
VOLUNTEERS ARE THE BACKBONE OF OUR LEAGUE
The league started almost 50 years ago and we believe it is the oldest operating, PTA-sponsored, school program in Virginia. Four division commissioners (one for each division) work directly with League Commissioner, Eric Fleming, to coordinate volunteers, assign players to each division and operate the league. Please consider donating your time by signing-up as a coach and/or referee to support this great league and help provide this amazing resource to our precious children. No experience is required.
Contact Eric Fleming at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or would like to volunteer with Mantua PTA Basketball.
