BGCA BASKETBALL

REGULAR SEASON 2017

ABOUT BASKETBALL

The Goal with the Boys & Girls Clubs - Alaska Basketball program is to provide its Members a safe, healthy, fun, and meaningful experience via regularly scheduled practices and games. The twelve-week season will commence on January 9 and conclude April 14, 2017.  U8 practices will be held Tuesday evenings with games being held on Thursday evenings. U10-U12 practices will be held on Monday and Wednesday evenings with games being held on Friday evenings for the 2017 season. Games will commence the third week of the season. 

Teams will be designated by the Anchorage School District high school zone (or a series of schools) where the team is located. If there are not enough Members to form a team (within the same gender when applicable) in the particular area which the player resides, he/she will have the opportunity to roster with another team in a different area of Anchorage. (If there are not enough players to form at least four teams in a gender specific division, age divisions will be coed). Players and coaches are encouraged to give their team nicknames which are cool and fun! (This program has no affiliation with the Anchorage School District or its individual schools)

Please Note: Members are not restricted to rostering specifically on a team within their high school zone and preferences/special requests for the season may be approved with prior written notice to BGCA Athletics Staff. Additionally, players are required to provide a birth certificate to verify birthdate and encouraged to provide a current physical prior to the first game of the season.

SPONSOR A TEAM!

Team sponsorships are a crucial part of any athletic program. Through Team Sponsorships, the Boys & Girls Clubs – Alaska Athletics Department are able to offer scholarships to deserving families, refurbish and replace equipment, provide uniforms, purchase the sports supplies needed for each sport and maintain the fields/facilities.  Additionally, our coaches are able to take advantage of coaching education opportunities through coaching courses that, ultimately, benefit the athletics experience for all children. In return, your business will benefit through brand awareness, image enhancement, possible increased sales, and a return on investment that benefits the community as a whole. 

All Athletes registered to a Boys & Girls Clubs – Alaska Athletics program receive a uniform package (specific to the sport the Athlete is registered for) which will always includes a jersey.  Currently ConocoPhillips is the title Good Sport Sponsor for the Boys & Girls Clubs – Alaska, with their logo being featured on the front of all jerseys. Local Sponsors of BGCA Teams will also be featured on secondary location of the team jersey with prominent visibility of the Sponsor’s name.

In addition to our Sponsors name featured on a BGCA Athletics Team’s jersey, the Boys & Girls Clubs – Alaska will also offer to our Partners:

  • Website logo/link placement on our website and any other social media for the duration of the one-year
  • One seasonal e-mail blast to BGCA Members participating in that particular sport promoting any specials/news from our Sponsors for that particular month
  • Recognition in the Boys & Girls Clubs – Alaska Annual Report
  • Plaque with a photograph of the Team your business is sponsoring, expressing our appreciation

In exchange, Boys & Girls Clubs – Alaska would look for from the Sponsor:

Seasonal financial contribution for the duration of the sponsorship, generally one year, in exchange for the Sponsorship Package listed below:

  • Basketball: $500 / per 2 teams      

Additionally, there will be a $3 application fee per jersey applied to the Sponsorship Package selected featuring our Sponsor’s logo/name. 

Every player, every team needs a sponsor!  Show your support by sponsoring two Basketball teams for $500  The sponsor registration is quick and easy, simply click on the registration link below.  Or print and fill out a copy of our paper application and return it to the Athletics Department in our Woodland Park Office at 2300 W. 36th Ave. Anchorage, AK 99517.
