The intramural program, also known as REC Basketball, is open to every Walpole child registered regardless of skill level. This program is the foundation of the entire program in that, because children develop physically, socially and emotionally at different rates, a child has the opportunity to play and develop skills and confidence without the stress and pressure of travel programs. Teams are selected via draft with the intent of developing equal competition throughout all levels. Every team practices throughout the season for 1 hour on Saturdays with games on Sundays (or vice versa).
This program begins the first weekend in December and concludes the first weekend of March. Those children participating in the intramural (REC)
program must attend a 60-minute clinic in November. These clinics are required even for those children who may have tried out for a travel
team but were not selected.
