Basketball

Updated Sunday December 13, 2015 by Nigel Blower.

Cheltenham Sports Basketball, is a member of the Cheltenham Sports Organization, whose goal is to build community pride one child at a time. Our basketball program exists through the efforts of committed volunteers. We strive to create a safe and fun environment to promote the game of basketball to our children and the life lessons to be learned from participating in a team sport. We encourage fair play, excellence in sportsmanship, honesty, teamwork, competitiveness, respect for self and one’s opponents. Understanding the rules of the game, learning the fundamentals, playing to the best of one’s ability and continual improvement is the focus of our program.

Each year more than 200 players from grades Kindergarten through eighth grade, from Cheltenham Township and surrounding communities, participate in our intramural program. Another group of more than 50 players participate in the Intra-County Basketball Association Travel League. Regardless of previous experience or skill level, our program’s message is the same – each player has an important contribution to make, and our team is most successful when we all do our best.

Cheltenham Sports Basketball exists through the efforts of committed volunteers. We strive to create a safe and fun environment to promote the game of basketball to our children and the life lessons to be learned from participating in a team sport – hardwork, dedication, overcoming adversity, and teamwork.
