Overview of the Forks Summer Basketball League

Note: This is a general overview that is subject to some change and is based on past years.  The key issue that could cause a change is the distribution of teams registered by level.

1

The league starts Monday June 2 for Freshman thru Varsity levels. NJ high school teams will start based on NJ summer league rules. If we need to based on teams, we will play on Sunday June 1.

2

Division is based on grade as of September 2014

3

The regular season will run through Friday July 25.  There are 10 regular season games

4

Playoffs will be played the week of July 27 with Freshman thru Varsity finals being held Friday August 1 and 5th – 8th finals being held Saturday August 2

5

The top 6 teams, or 50% of teams if more than 12 teams, in each division make the playoffs.  If you make the playoffs, you could have up to 3 playoff games.

6

Costs in 2014 will be $175 per team for all levels.  In addition, for each game, including playoffs, both teams must pay one official $30. If a team forfeits a game, with out prior notification, they will be required to pay the cost of both officials ($60) to be included in the playoffs or accepted in future seasons.

Forfeits that are communicated to the opposing teams AND the director of officials prior to the day of the game will allow for cancellation of the officials and will not be charged.

7

Payment Deadline is May 12.  If you are not paid and have not made alternative plans to pay, you will be dropped from the league.  We do expect a waiting list to pull from.

8

A league meeting will be held May 12 at 6:30 at the Forks Community Center to verify team information and participation and to address league issues and questions

2

All Freshman thru Varsity level games are played Monday thru Friday. Unless team registration requires a change.

3

5th thru 8th grade levels are primarily played on Saturday and Sunday. Some games will be scheduled on weeknights, however do not count on this.
