2020 Sign Up Information - Updated April 12, 2020

Signup Information - Updated  April 12, 2020:

Hi everyone,
First of all, we all hope you and your families are healthy and safe during these difficult and unprecedented times.  It is typically at this point of spring that the league sends out a welcome letter with information for sign-ups.  Unfortunately, during this difficult time, the league’s board members feel for the safety of the players and the families, that we will cancel the Milford Summer Basketball League for 2020.  While this is difficult to do, we feel it is certainly the right decision at this time. 
It is our intention to continue the league next season and we will keep you all updated on any changes or developments as the summer moves forward.
We certainly hope that this all passes soon and we can back to a normal (or new normal) lifestyle.  We hope you all stay safe and stay healthy in the days, weeks and months ahead.
Should you have any questions please feel free to contact us.

Thanks for understanding,
Bob Alperin, Paul Sontag and Keith Francis

About The League

2/01/2020 05:26:00 PM msblhoops


About the League
Biddy Jr. League:
The league has been created to give children the opportunity to play basketball during the summer.  The league is instructional in nature, and allows plenty of playing time for all players regardless of their ability.
The Biddy league will consist of 4 teams. Each team will consist of 20-22 players, of which 10-11 players will be on the 'B' team (younger, less experienced players).  The remaining 10-11 players will be on the 'A' team (older, more experienced players).  Each team in the league will have a coach for the 'A' and another for the 'B' team.
Player evaluations are held to determine the playing level of each individual.  It is mandatory to attend one of the evaluations (failure to do so may jeopardize that player's involvement in the league).  Once all players have been evaluated, teams will be selected.
We strongly believe the best way to teach defense is to play man-to-man, therefore there are no zone defenses allowed in this league.
We also believe that it important to teach structured offenses, therefore we require each coach to teach plays (offensive motion, inbounds plays, etc), and basics of the game (pick and rolls, screens, etc).
Teams are created as evenly as possible to provide competitive games.   We will make every attempt to have players competing against others with similar abilities.

Sr. League:
The Senior league will consist of 4 teams with each team consisting of 10-11 players with a mix of girls and boys on each team.  The games will consist of 4 8-minute quarters.
