Youth Basketball Leagues

Hampshire County Parks and Recreation will sponsor three youth basketball leagues for the coming winter. The Developmental Basketball League (DBL) will be for all boys and girls in first and second grade. Biddy Buddy is for all boys and girls in grades 3 and 4, and the Intermediate Basketball League (IBL) is for all boys and girls in grades 5 through 8. The DBL is a new league that will focus on beginner individual and team skills and fundamentals.

Team Selection for all three leagues will be held on Sunday, December 4, at Romney Middle School. All players will be assigned to a team at that time. Team practices will begin the week of December 12, and each team will have four practices before the first game. Practices and games will alternate between Romney Middle School and Old Capon Bridge Middle School, with teams practicing at the location of that week’s games. The first games will be played on Sunday, January 7, at the RMS and OCBMS gyms.

Registration Fee for all three leagues is $25. To register, log onto the HCP&R website, hampshirecountyparks.com, and fill out and then send the Program Registration Form, which is located at the bottom of the home page. You may also register in person at the HCP&R office at 90 North High Street in Romney any weekday between 9:00 am and 1:00 pm. Registrations will also be accepted at RMS on Sunday, December 4, which is the day of Team Selections.

Hampshire Mat Club

Registrations are now being accepted for the Hampshire Mat Club, a youth wrestling organization supported by Hampshire County Parks and Recreation for boys and girls ages four-through-fifteen. The HMC teaches folkstyle wrestling, which is the same format used in high school and college wrestling. Wrestlers will be classified by both age and weight for competition. The Mat Club practices three nights per week until the matches begin and twice per week thereafter.

HMC will once again compete in the Mason Dixon League, which features teams from the surrounding West Virginia and Virginia area, and tournaments in that league will be held on weekends during December, January, and February. The Club will also attend other tourneys around the area, including state competitions.

The registration fee for the Hampshire Mat Club is $25. To register, log onto our website, hampshirecountyparks.com, and fill out and then send the Program Registration Form, which is located at the bottom of the home page. You may also register in person at the HCP&R Office at 90 North High Street in Romney any weekday between 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. There will be an in-person registration for the HMC on Monday, November 7, from 6:00 until 8:00 pm at the Old Romney Middle School gymnasium. At that registration, information will be distributed about the on-line store, where personalized singlets and warm-ups may be purchased.
