There are no evaluations for 1st and 2nd grade

Evaluations are mandatory for the leagues outlined above and help us create balanced teams, which is in the best interest of the league.  Players who do not attend cannot be guaranteed a spot on a team.

If you have a family emergency and cannot make the evaluations, please contact us.

WHY WE ARE DIFFERENT

There are many choices for your son to play Basketball. and I hope you choose DAA.  While we keep track of score, our volunteer coaches manage the games to make sure that each boy has equal playing time and that he is included in plays and positions on the court.

Teamwork and sportsmanship are a hallmark of the league, regardless of age, skill or ability. 

Personally, I've lived in the community for more than 20 years and my only wish was that I had a similar program when I was growing up.  While I played travel soccer and tennis, I didn't play Basketball until 10th grade and continued playing intramural Basketball in college and then at the local YMCA well into my 20's.

Now as the father of 3 boys- two still involved in DAA- my goal is to continue the success of my predecessors.   DAA is celebrating its 50th year, and I hope that we lay the groundwork for 50+ more.

If you have any questions about our program or would like to help, always feel free to contact me either at jonb@donorperfect.com or my cell at 215-896-2768.

Sincerely,

Jon Biedermann

NEW FOR 2017-2018

Over the summer of 2017, a committee was formed to look at the Boys Basketball rules and league guidelines.

As a result, we are planning on making the following changes:

  • While the age divisions are always based on the number of registrants, we will endeavor to make sure that there are only two grade levels per age division.  This includes trying to form 7/8, 9/10, and 11/12 divisions.
    (UPDATE as of November 1, 2017- Because of the growth and success of our league, we are guaranteed to have separate divisions at the older grade levels for this season!!!)
  • 3 Pointers will now be allowed at grades 5/6.
  • "Fair but not exactly equal" playing time will be implemented across all age divisions.   Since we are an intramural program, we want to develop players of all ages, and making playing time as fair as possible will achieve that goal.  At the same time, we understand that there will always be exceptions in case of an odd number of players, or for players who arrive late, foul out, can't play because of injury, or even miss practices.   The goal is that no player can sit on the bench more than 1/2 quarter than anyone else on the team (since there are substitutions  halfway through every quarter)

These changes will reinforce DAA's commitment to provide a fun, fair, competitive, and challenging sports environment for boys in our community.

Our Mission

We provide Intramural and travel basketball programs for the youth of our community.  

Our organization is dedicated to providing positive role models for our children while developing the qualities of sportsmanship, discipline, teamwork, and self-confidence.  

Our goal is to teach the fundamentals of basketball in a healthy & competitive environment which we hope will lead to the development of responsible members of our community.

We offer leagues for 1st thru 12th grades. The season starts in December with practices and runs to March with games & playoffs. In addition we have a travel program for 3rd thru 9th grades. They practice & play September through March.


Sponsors Needed & Appreciated!

DAA is a non-profit organization that relies solely on registration fees, fund raising events, and sponsorships to help pay for needed sports equipment, gym time, referees, and other related expenses. The cost to sponsor a team is only $125.  Your business or organization name will be on the back of each shirt,.

Please contact me if you have any questions.
