League Overview

The Summer League @ Scalzi Park is designed to provide a positive sports experience.  The primary purpose is to offer each participant the opportunity to pursue, through recreational basketball, the physical and emotional benefits of the sport.  Our goal is for all players to have the opportunity to gain new skills, make new friends and have fun.

The emphasis is on good sportsmanship, proper conduct, and following the rules and policies of the Summer League. Although competition is a natural part of sports activities, winning is not the primary goal.  We want not only our participants, but also our coaches and fans, to play fairly and respect each other.  Cheer for one’s triumphs and not for their shortcomings.  Win with grace and lose with dignity.  Encourage others always to do their best and try their hardest.
