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. The Intermediate Basketball League (IBL) is for all boys and girls in grades 5 through 8.
Team Selection for all three leagues will be held on Sunday, December 10, at Romney Middle School. All players will be assigned to a team at that time. The schedule for Team Selection will be as follows:

Team practices will begin the week of December 18, and each team will have three 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.
