Schedules and General Housekeeping


Your childs schedule is up on the Ohio Basketball App, please download the free app, click on the Big Leaf Leauge, click on the 3 bars on the top left and you will see all of the teams, we are obviously Berkshire. For the 3rd and 4th grade girls, you will look under Rookie Girls, 3rd grade is Gold, 4th grade is Purple. All of the games have not yet posted but once it is said and done there will be 10 games on the schedule. Once the season has conpleted there will be additional opportunities for playing basketball if the appetite to continue is there for the coach, parents and player. i will cover that later on this winter

You will see that some of your games start this week, we will be wearing purple jerseys from last year or a volleyball jersey or a soccer jersey, whatever you have at your house until next Wednesday when the new uniforms arrive. Due to the rising cost of uniforms, basketballs, insurance etc we are going to be collecting the new jerseys at the end of the season so that we can start to lower the cost of playing basketball. Also, in order to keep the cost down in the leauge that we are playing in, there is an admission fee to the games of $4 for adults and $2 for children. This money goes to the host school in order for them to operate the lights, keep the heat on and to help fund their programs. If all goes as planned and Berkshire Rec Basketball can collect $1500-2000 from the gate of the games we host this season, along with collecting uniforms, not having to buy 50+ basketballs and other essential items, the cost of basketball going forward will be significantly reduced in the years ahead.
