The Barker COVID-19 policy ONLY applies to Barker basketball activities and does not apply to school or other extra curricular activities. Please follow the guidance of your school or organization. The following policy applies to BOTH the in-town and travel leagues.
After a successful summer season we are now planning our 2021-2022 travel, in-town and High School Barker seasons. Hingham Public School gymnasiums are once again available to us for practices and games.
Registration Open: After a COVID forced hiatus last year, John Baker In-Town Basketball for 1st - 8th grades is back for the 2021-2022 season!! This will be the same as years past with teams of approximately 10 players, equal playing time across the board and all games held locally in Hingham on Saturdays. We are shooting for a 12/4 start with no games on 12/25, 1/1 or 2/19. We do not have exact times and locations for each grade yet but will release that info ASAP. The season will run through 3/12.
We are also working on bringing our popular Sunday Skills and Drills sessions back, hosted by ASA and RAB. This year we hope to hold these sessions on Sunday afternoons between 12:00-3:00pm. More information to come as things firm up.
Travel Basketball will be open to 3rd - 8th grade boys. We will again be playing in the South Shore Youth Basketball League as well as the Starland Winter League. Games will be held across the South Shore as well as at Starland.
Tryouts will be held at Starland again this year on the following dates and times:
Monday October 18th:
4:00 - 7th grade and 4th grade
5:00 - 5th grade and 3rd grade
6:00 - 8th grade and 6th grade
Wednesday October 20th:
4:30 to 6:00 - 8th grade
Monday October 25th:
4:00 - 3rd grade

6:00 - 6th grade and 5th grade
Please note that to be considered for A team placement you must attend at least one of the two tryouts. We strongly encourage attendance at both tryouts so coaches can get the best look possible.
