This is a recreational traveling hoop league. The philosophy of the league is to teach fair play, good sportsmanship and improve skills of each individual.
Teams travel to towns such as South Hadley, Belchertown, Ludlow, Chicopee, Granby, Monson, Palmer, and others. We will practice and play home games in Northampton.
Teams will play approximately 12 games, with “stop time” rules. Practices start in November, games are January through February, with playoffs in March.
All players receive a reversible basketball team shirt, and play in every game.
Teams are officiated by certified officials, or if not available it is an adult official.
Residents of Northampton, Florence, Leeds have priority until November 11. Non-residents begins Nov. 12 at 10am. Non-residents must attend school in Northampton, or must not have a Quabbin League team in their town of residence.
Registrations for the Quabbin Basketball League are taken in groups of 10. Players that sign up after the first 10 will be placed on a wait list until there are enough players and a coach to open an additional team. If waitlist in indicated on registration page, register online to secure a waitlist spot, or at our office and the system will put you on the waitlist. Families will be notified if they are taken off of the wait list.

Every player should attend at least two of the three pre-season practice and evaluation sessions. If you can not, you may still play. We encourage the players to come to as many as they can. These evaluations are so we can even out the teams as best as possible.
