The Essex Basketball program is a home town organization created to provide fun and competitive opportunities in the sport of basketball for girls and boys in grades 5-8.
Our program offers teams for girls and boys to play in several seasonal competitive settings including the county wide Mini Metro league, played in the winter season, and AAU team participation, in spring tournament play.
Mini Metro is a competative league in which teams compete throughout the Chittenden County area in grade 5-6 and 7-8 divisions. The league runs from the beginning of November to the end of February.
A.A.U. (Amatuer Athletic Union) is the largest non-profit atheltic organization in the country and offers a venue for basketball clubs to be created and compete in local, state, and national tournaments. The AAU season operates within a spring-summer schedule.
Boys and Girls from Essex Junction, Essex Town, and Westford are able to tryout for these programs
This past year, over 70 boys and girls played on the six Mini Metro teams and one AAU team from Essex.
