(10/07/2020) The Brookline Rec Department and the Brookline Basketball Association are hoping to be able to offer youth basketball programs during this winter season, but we are not yet certain that we will be able to do so. There are numerous factors/considerations at work, including: the current limitations on indoor activities in the Town, the upcoming transition of the Brookline Public Schools to a hybrid model and its impact on available gym space, and the current classification of Basketball as a "Higher Risk" sport by the Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs Youth Sports Guidelines, among others.

As a result, no tryout dates have been set for Travel basketball and no program registration is currently open for any of the basketball programs. As the Rec Department and the BBA gain more clarity on state guidelines (and Brookline's own public health response to those guidelines) and other factors, we will determine if and how we can proceed in offering our typical youth basketball programs. Feel free to contact the BBA with any questions and stay well.

Welcome to the Brookline Basketball Association (the "BBA") website. The BBA board was formed in 2015 to work alongside the Town of Brookline's Recreation Department to improve the experience of youth basketball in the town.


The two main Town-sponsored youth basketball programs are the Town Travel program, which competes against teams from throughout the Boston suburbs, and the Joel M. Noe Youth Recreation League, which consists of teams within Brookline only. Registration for both programs is administered by the Rec Department.

The Rec Department also offers Saturday clinics for boys and girls in grades K through 2 and also administers a recreational league at Brookline High School for students who are NOT members of the freshman, JV or varsity basketball teams.


This site will serve as a comprehensive information resource for players, parents and coaches regarding programs offered by the Town as well as other youth basketball playing and training opportunities available throughout the year.


The BBA is led by a group of volunteers with significant experience coaching youth basketball. The BBA is also supported by an Advisory Board including members of the basketball coaching staffs at Brookline High School.
