Chester Summer Basketball Summer 2022

Chester Summer Basketball Summer 2022 

Register now at www.chestersummerbasketball.org as the June 1 deadline is fast approaching!!

Games begin Monday, June 20th and continue through Thursday July 21st.

There will be Boys and Girls divisions for those entering 5th and 6th grades, 7th and 8th grades and 9th grade in the fall.

The program is a great program that has grown from 40 kids to nearly 500.

Chester Summer Basketball was created to be playground/pickup basketball in a controlled environment. And like pickup games, the games are meant to be played without coaches and without coaching from parents and spectators. It is a league basically run by the youth, with adult coordinators present only as facilitators.

Games are played Monday thru Thursday evenings. No coaches, no practices, just games!

Games are 50-60 minutes long (two 20 minute halves) and start at 6pm and later. Team sizes are kept small to allow for plenty of court time. Local High School players are paid to officiate the games.  The number of games is usually 2 per week. We guarantee 8 games/team and will schedule more if possible.

The season concludes with playoffs, championship and all-star games. Games are played in Chester, NJ on outdoor basketball courts. Later games are played under the lights! 

Registration fee is only $125 per player.

If you are a rising 10th-13th grader and interested in paid officiating, please contact Mark McKevitt: mckevitt04261@gmail.com.

If you are interested in volunteering as a parent coordinator or have any additional questions, please contact Anthony Cresti: anthony@cresti.com

See you on the outdoor courts!

**********Covid Plan UPDATE****************

The Chester Basketball COVID 19 preparation plan was created in accordance with the New Jersey Department of Health’s Public Health Recommendations for Youth Sports (September 20, 2021).  Our program’s preparation plan is regularly updated as required by the NJDOH.  Updates are based on evolving guidance from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), state and local public health regulations, and COVID activity levels in the community.  Revisions will be posted to the CBB website as necessary.


If you have additional questions, please contact our CBB Health and Safety Coordinator: Tom Murphy, MD ( ). Highlights of the CBB COVID 19 Program Preparation Plan (as of 1/11/22):

  • Coaches are educated on CBB health and safety protocols prior to the start of the season
  • Shared practice equipment (like balls) are disinfected regularly
  • Individuals are expected to wear an appropriate face covering at all times during Chester Basketball activities.  Players are not required to wear masks while engaged in vigorous physical activity, with certain exceptions.
  • Athletes are screened by temperature check at the start of each session (Participants with temperature >100.4 degrees will be sent home immediately)
  • When possible, physical distancing is encouraged for athletes, coaches, referees, and spectators
  • Athletes and coaches should bring their own drinks/food to athletic activities.  Shared water bottles and communal food are not permitted
  • Quarantine and return to play:
    • Participants with any potential symptom of COVID MUST stay home until they are evaluated and cleared by their doctor.
    • Participants diagnosed with COVID MUST alert the program immediately
    • All contact tracing and determination of close contact is handled by local public health officials.  When Chester Basketball is notified of a positive participant, a team will suspend operations to allow public health officials time to investigate as necessary
      • Any participant in our program who is identified by the health department through contact tracing as a close contact MUST alert the program immediately
      • Close contacts identified by public health officials via contact tracing will be handled as follows:
        • Vaccinated individuals do not need to quarantine and can continue participation without testing as long as they have no symptoms of COVID 19
        • Unvaccinated individuals may return to play after 5 days if they are asymptomatic. These players MUST wear a mask continuously on days 6-10 (even during play).  Players must confirm with their physician that they are medically able to wear a mask during vigorous activity.    
          • Unvaccinated individuals who had COVID within the previous three months, recovered from their COVID infection, and have no current symptoms of COVID do not need to quarantine
    • Youth sports organizations have been instructed to track the COVID vaccination status of participants.  Parents of participants will be asked to provide their participant’s COVID vaccination status.
