Summer Hoops

Summer Hoops is a low-key, fast-paced chance to play with your friends and keep your hands on the ball! Summer Hoops offers something for everyone!

Looking for a team? We have that! Play 5v5 with players in your division (each division contains two or three grade levels) once a week for an hour-long game. We offer the following boys’ teams: grades 2/3, 4/5, 6/7, 8/9, 10-12. We offer the following girls’ teams: grades 2/3, 4/5, 6-8. Divisions are determined by the grade a player finished in June 2022.

Looking for pickup? We have that! Bring a posse and come play pick-up 3v3. (You’ll always know you’re friends are there!) Games are fifteen minutes long and rotate through the pool of available players on both courts. 3v3 Pick up is available for boys in grades 8+ and girls in grades 6+ and is free to anyone who registers to play with a team. Girls play on Wednesdays at 5:30. Boys play on Tuesdays at 5:30. This is a great option for late middle- and high-school kids who want to have some low-key fun with their friends. You must be registered to play.

Looking for adult play? We have that, too! Join us for Men’s 18-25 or Men’s 40+ basketball on Wednesday evenings (one court each)! Women, do you want to play? Email Sara@SwarthmoreRecreation.org to express your interest. If sufficient people are interested, we will make it happen! You must be registered to play. Minimum registration must be met to run the program.

REGISTRATION FEE: $60 for team or adult play; $30 for 3v3 pick up (pick up is free if you register for a team); registration opens Monday, May 02 at 9:00AM. We will cap registration until we have sufficient numbers to run each division. Minimum registration is required to run each division, so encourage your friends to sign up. We keep big rosters for each team because people miss in the summer.

COACHES: Summer Hoops is run with the help of volunteer coaches. One team of coaches helps with one game (no practice!) each week. This is a low-pressure introduction to coaching basketball and is the best way to assure that your child gets to play. Coaches are required to have or obtain legally mandated background checks.

REGISTRATION HAS NOW CLOSED FOR 2022
