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 through 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!
