St.Gregory/ IMMAC CYO Intramural Basketball Program
The Intramural basketball program is a skills based, teaching program for beginners and those who are looking to learn the fundamentals of basketball while having fun
The program is organized by St.Gregory and also IMMAC CYO and their coordinator Kathy Hurley
The intramural program has continued to grow each year and working with IMMAC CYO we strive to keep improving the intramural program
Just under 200 players particpated last year
We are also very fortunate to recieve the help of North Rockland High School basketball coaches Jamie Ryan and Mike Castaldo as well as the players and other experienced coaches
The program begins the first Saturday in December and ends in mid- Feburary
The first three Saturdays in December will be the 3 practices. On week 1, every player is issued a basketball
The goal of the practice is to teach the fundementals of basketball and the proper techniques and skills
On the second practice, each player meets their coach and teammates for the season
Week 3 during the final practice, every player is issued their new game jersey and they practice in teams to prepare for the games in Janurary
After the practices conclude in December, in Janurary 2018, games will begin. Players only bring their game jerseys and don´t need to bring balls once games begin
Schedules/ Rules and Locations for the games and practices will be emailed out and also posted here on the website
Please note: All practices and games are only held on Saturday usually before 4:00 PM usually between 9:00- 3:45 the latest
Games are tons of fun where each team plays against each other, each player brings the ball up, plays both offense and defense, and the score is kept on the scoreboard
Clock is stopped throughout the game to teach skills about offense, defense, etc.
Our goal is for every player to score by the end of the season as well as improve their skills and get better while having fun!
Grades 1/2 and Grades 3/4/5 are a division and play together however during games only those of equal skills will play at the same time to ensure fairness
