Crofton Basketball

COVID UPDATE: Crofton Basketball is working with Anne Arundel County to ensure a safe return to play.  We are currently operating a limited outdoor league through Anne Arundel County Park and Recs for the spring of 2021. We anticipate having full gym access in the fall of 2021 and resume our “open gym” program in preparation for a full indoor season. Our plan is to offer both County (travel) and Intramural (house) basketball in the winter of 2021.  We hope to see you on the court soon!

County Fall Basketball will Open on 01 September 2021

Intramural Fall Basketball will Open on 01 October 2021

Spring County Basketball will Open in January 2022

Age groups are determined by a player’s age on 01 September 2021


Intramural (house) basketball is typically for younger players who are looking to learn the game.  For ages 5-6, we offer clinic basketball to introduce players to the game (practices and games are on Sundays).  For ages 7-14, we offer intramural basketball where players will play against other kids in Crofton.  Practices are typically on Saturdays with games typically on Sundays.  Intramural registration opens on 10/1 and closes on 10/31. We need a lot of volunteer coaches at this level so every kid has a chance to play!!

More information about Intramural and Clinic Basketball is available by clicking here.

If you have any questions about our Intramural/Clinic/House program for boys and girls ages 5 through 14, please email Heather at



Winter County (travel) basketball is typically for those players who are more experienced and looking for a high level of competition.  For ages 8u – 14U, we will have evaluations.  Any player not making a county team will be automatically moved to our intramural (house) program.  For ages 15U-17U, we will be limiting registrations in multiples of 10.  If your child is registered after that, there will be a waitlist.  We will let you know when enough additional players have signed up to allow for another team so you can proceed with registering.

Since our registrations are prior to High School tryouts, any player making a High School JV or Varsity team will get a FULL refund of their registration fee.  So, please sign your child up for county even if they are trying out for their school.  If you wait, it will be too late.

Winter County registration will be open from 9/1 and closes on 9/30. Tryouts and placements will occur during the month of October. For questions about County Basketball email



Spring County Basketball is offered for players ages 8u through 14u (based on their age on 9/1/2019), boys and girls. Spring basketball is intended for seasoned, competitive players playing at a higher than average level. For less experienced players, Crofton offers winter intramural basketball with registration opening in October. Games for Spring County are typically on Sundays at Anne Arundel County Schools and practices are held two times during the week at Crofton Schools.

NOTE:  Traditionally we have fewer teams in the spring and since teams are formed in multiples of 10, we have enabled the wait list at several divisions.  If your child is interested in playing, PLEASE register early to avoid getting put on the waiting list. If you are put on the waiting list, we will contact you once we have enough kids at that age to form another team and will send you a note to complete your registration. We may hold tryouts at certain ages to ensure players can compete at the county level. 

Spring County registration opens on 1/15 and closes on 2/15. More information is available at If you are interested in coaching, please register so that we have an accurate idea of the number of teams we can offer at each age. If you have any questions please email Matt Fine at

Our program would be possible without our amazing volunteer coaches. If you’re interested in coaching or otherwise volunteering in our upcoming season, please let us know at Please sign up as a volunteer for your child’s age and complete the required Anne Arundel County background check.

Coaching Policy: ALL Crofton Basketball coaches are volunteers. Per CAC policy, all head coaches must be over 18 years old and hold a valid Anne Arundel County background check  In addition all head coaches must attend an Anne Arundel County Coaching clinic within their first year of coaching. Coaching volunteers will be evaluated on coaching experience, knowledge of the game, parent feedback, and peer coach feedback. If there are more head coach volunteers than there are teams at a particular level, a decision will be made by the Commissioner based on the above factors.  A volunteer will NOT be allowed to coach if their CAC account is in “bad standing.” In addition, a volunteer’s actions across other CAC sports will be considered when coaching placement decisions are made.
