Recreation League Objectives

The GDYBL Recreation League is focused in its effort to teach the basic skills of basketball through the values of teamwork, respect and having fun. Our goal is to create a positive environment in which self-esteem building is accomplished through the reinforcement of skills and creating a positive team atmosphere.

The Recreation League is dedicated to providing opportunities for the youth of Groton and Dunstable to play basketball for enjoyment and recreation; we strive to meet the following goals:
 

  • Develop individual and team basketball knowledge and skills for all participants.
  • Provide equal opportunity for growth and development of all players, regardless of ability and experience.
  • Emphasize teamwork and cooperation as the key elements of success.
  • Demonstrate and communicate to all players, coaches and spectators that excellent sportsmanship be exhibited at all times.
  • Focus on skill development and character development.
