Crofton Basketball

FALL TRAINING SESSIONS NOW OPEN FOR REGISTRATION!!

Crofton Basketball has partnered with the Elite Starr Academy to offer indoor basketball training sessions during September and October for boys 1st through 11th grade. Each age group will have one training session a week at an INDOOR gym in the Crofton area. The training sessions will be conducted by coaches from the Elite Starr Academy and Crofton County Basketball. The sessions will focus on skill development to prepare our players for the upcoming County and Intramural seasons.
 
Crofton basketball will follow current Anne Arundel County covid precautions and will update as conditions change. Current precautions allow players to remove their masks when on the court participating in basketball. Parents and siblings will not be allowed in the gym to limit exposure to non-participants. Players will also be screened prior to entering the gym.
 
Each age will receive four total evening training sessions during the months of September and early October. Below are the currently scheduled evenings for each age group. The location and times may change based on gym availability. The total cost for all sessions is $85 and you can register by logging onto your account at www.croftonsports.com and select “2021 Fall Basketball Skills Sessions.” To ensure a high level of individual instruction and safety, each session will be limited to 25 total players. 
 
Monday: 1st/2nd grade and 5th/6th grade
Tuesday: 3rd/4th and 10th/11th grade
Wednesday: 7th grade
Thursday: 8th/9th grade
 
You can send any questions to basketball@croftonsports.com and we are excited to see you back on the court soon!!

 

Thank you

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 heather@croftonbasketball.com.

Winter County (travel) basketball is typically for those players who are more experienced and looking for a high level of competition. Age divisions are determined by a player’s age on 01 September 2021.  For ages 8u – 14U, we will have evaluations during the month of October and any player not making a county team will be automatically moved to our intramural (house) program.  

For ages 15U-17U (HIGH SCHOOL PLAYERS), we will be limiting registrations in multiples of 10.  If your child is registers after that, he/she will be put on 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. Evaluations will still be held to ensure players can compete at the county level. Any player not making a county team will receive a full refund. 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.  Each team will have two practices during the week in the evening at a gym in Crofton. Games are typically on Saturdays across Anne Arundel County. For questions about County Basketball email basketball@croftonsports.com

Spring County Basketball is offered for players ages 8u through 14u (based on their age on 9/1/2021), 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 www.croftonbasketball.com. 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 at basketball@croftonsports.com
 

Our program would not be possible without our amazing volunteer coaches. If you’re interested in coaching or otherwise volunteering in our upcoming season, 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 in any role if their CAC account is in “bad standing” or there are in a “suspended” status.  In addition, a volunteer’s actions across other CAC sports will be considered when coaching placement decisions are made.
