All Players, Coaches and Volunteers must Register Online. Registration will close on October 9th.

The Online system will be used to register:

    • Grades 9-12 as well as Coaches & Volunteers for Girls High School Recreation Basketball (This League is still TBD)
Recreation Coaches, please register as soon as possible. We will have a coaches meeting in late September. I'll need to know who is returning, leaving or is new to the program. If you coached 2 years ago and are not coaching this year (or your daughter is trying out for travel), just please drop me a note to that effect. Coaching spots will be assigned to registered volunteers upon approval by the Rockaway Township Girls Basketball Program Board.
If you would like to volunteer to be a Recreation Team Parent or would like to just help out in one of our many areas of need, please register as a Team Parent and then indicate as requested in what area you would like to assist. You will not be automatically signed up as the Team Parent unless you specifically indicate it under the volunteer assignments section.

Quick Notes on our Program: 

    • Our season will run from November through early March (ending with playoffs).  Team Drafts will be held in late October as gyms become available
    • Our Travel (Competitive) program consists of 4 teams:
      • 5th Grade Girls Travel Team (if there is enough interest)
      • 6th Grade Girls Travel Team
      • 7th Grade Girls Travel Team
      • 8th Grade Girls Travel Team
(If you are interested in trying out for one of our Travel Teams, please register for that team so that you can be notified of all important dates. If you are not selected for a Travel team, your registration will automatically be moved to the In-House program and a refund for any difference in program costs will be processed. Please note that all remaining notes here pertain to In-House (Recreation Basketball). Please go to our website for more details on Travel basketball.)
  • Our In-House (Recreation) program is grouped into 4 divisions:
    • Rookie Division - 3rd & 4th Grade Girls
    • Junior Division - 5th & 6th Grade Girls
    • Senior Division - 7th & 8th Grade Girls
    • High School Division - 9th thru 12th Grade Girls
  • The first games begin in Januay this year, with preseason practices leading up to that. 
  • There is typically 1 practice and 1 game each week. Most (but not all) games are on Saturdays, with the younger players playing in the early hours. There are also games during the week, with younger players playing at 6:30pm and the older players playing at 7:45pm. Practices run 1 to 1 1/2 hours and games run 1 to 1 1/4 hours.
  • There are no set days for practices, they will fluctuate (7 days per week) throughout the season based on gym availability.
  • The younger players practice and play at Birchwood School and Thomas Jefferson (in the Boro). The older girls practice and play at Copeland and Birchwood.
  • Our program utilizes a mandatory Player Draft; players are not assigned to teams based on schools or placed with friends.
  • Siblings in the same division will automatically be placed on the same team
  • The High School division is made up of girls from 9th through 12th grades, from both Morris Hills and Morris Knolls.
    • The High School division recognizes time is tight with the additional responsibilities that going to high school entails. The High School division does not start until AFTER Thanksgiving. With only one or two practices
    • High School games start in January.
    • High School games are mostly played Monday through Friday at 9:00pm. 
    • Each team plays ~1 game per week, usually no more. Again, this division is created to allow girls to continue playing basketball while assuring the time commitment is not overburdening.
