Registration Timing & Schedule

2023 Newmarket Youth Basketball registration will open at the beginning of September!  Programming for K-2 will run on Saturdays only, while older players will have practice during the week and a game on Saturdays (Beginning in late December). Weekday practices are usually one day each week pending gym availability.  The schedule will be released once registration is near completion in order to ascertain program numbers and needs.  Games and practices taking place in Newmarket will be held at either Newmarket Elementary or the Jr./Sr. High School
