Cherry Hill Volvo Cars Junior Maccabi Basketball 2018-2019 Season
By Bill Christy, JCC Health & Wellness Assistant Director
We are extremely thankful for Judith Krupnick and Cherry Hill Volvo Cars for their generous sponsorship this season. The 2018-2019 season is just around the corner! Registration has been open for our Full-Facility Members and beginning today, registration is now open for all. We are looking forward to a tremendous season with every youngster that participates learning more about the game, creating friendships, and most of all; having FUN! Most seasons will begin on December 9th with some exceptions. December 9th is also the last night of Hanukkah and just like the Maccabees’ leader, Judah Maccabee (hero symbolizing strength), we will strengthen all our athletes throughout the season!
We are excited to continue some of last year’s new initiatives and re-introduce an old initiative:
Not a member? Not a problem!
We now have rates for not only Basic members, but for Guests as well. We think this will add not only increased participation but allow previous friends of program participants to play in the league as well. Help spread the word to everyone you know about our program being opened to EVERYONE!
Pre-Season Clinics & Post-Season Clinics
We currently have registration open with limited spots available for our pre-season clinics that will begin 10/28 for 2-year olds to 4th graders. These clinics will help your child get ready for the season coming up. We will focus on fundamentals and introduce a new rule of the game each week. We will also offer post-season clinics that will be geared toward introducing your youngster into the next step in their playing environments.
Two Pre-K league options
We are excited to continue what we started last year with our 2-time options for Pre-K. Our 10:30-11:00 and 11:30-12:00 options will be available again to help accommodate all those different nap time routines for your little ones.
2 years ago, we introduced evaluation days and drafts to determine teams for our 3rd graders and up. We will continue this for this season as we believe this will helped balance teams in the best way possible and allowed for a more level playing field for all participants last season.
It is our goal to have the most successful season ever this year and we are looking forward to seeing all of you out on the courts in late November/early December.
