The Westport PAL Travel Basketball program prides itself on maintaining the proper balance between competitiveness and fairness. The objective of each team is to develop individual skills and team concepts while giving each child the opportunity to play and contribute. All games have four-8 minute quarters (Boys 4 and Girls 4 will vary) and PAL has instituted guidelines that call for the younger teams to play each player a minimum of 12 minutes a game. The oldest teams may at times have their boys and girls play anywhere from one-quarter of a game to an entire game. Its all about the kids.
Fourteen (15) Teams will be formed as follows:
Grade 4 Boys(2) Grade 4 Girls
Grade 5 Boys(2) Grad5 Girls
Grade 6 Boys(2) Grade 6 Girls
Grade 7 Boys(2) Grade 7 Girls
Grade 8 Boys(2) Grade 8 Girls(2)

TRAVEL BASKETBALL FEE: Your payment of $775 (Grades 5-8) will need to be made within ten days of notification in order to secure the players spot on the team.
