Youth Winter Basketball
The leaves are changing, days are getting shorter, and there’s a chill in the air; which
can only mean one thing: its basketball time in Morrisville! Practices are set to begin
in December for our six youth basketball leagues for boys and girls ages 5-12, and
games will begin in January. Four of the leagues will practice/play games at Cedar Fork
Community Center (Gnats, Termite Girls, Termite Boys and Small Fry Boys). Two of the
leagues will practice/play games at Davis Drive Middle School (Small Fry Girls and Mite
Boys). Between the two sites we have the capacity for 720 participants this winter, so it
will definitely be a busy time for the Athletics division! We are proud to say that all six
of our Gym Supervisors are back again for another year of hoops, so we look forward
to our experienced staff being able to assist our parents & coaches with any issues that
might arise during the course of the season.
In addition, we are also
pleased to welcome our new
Athletics Specialist, Bryan
Rhea, into the mix for this
season. Bryan comes to the
Department from Durham
Parks and Recreation where
he spent numerous years as
an Aquatics and Recreation
Center Supervisor, so please
feel free to introduce
yourself to Bryan or any
member of our staff if the
opportunity presents itself.
We look forward to another
terrific basketball season
and to serving the citizens
of the Town of Morrisville to
the very best of our ability!
