Welcome Basketball Families!
Our competitive traveling team league offers boys and girls with a higher skill level an opportunity to participate competitively.
Boys & girls residing in Montclair that are in grades 5 to 8 are invited to the travel team tryouts which start late fall.
During try-outs the coaches select 10 to 12 players per team from among all those who participate in tryouts.
Register for try-outs below to be sure to receive information on exact start dates.
Once try-out dates and schedules are established the information will be posted and emailed to all registered participants.
We appreciate the efforts and commitments of every player and family member, this enables us to have a fantastic season year after year. We look forward to everyone’s dedication, participation, cooperation, and support to ensure continued success.
The philosophy of the MPAL is to promote trust, understanding and respect between youth and the police officers. Such respect is beneficial to the youth, the police officers, the neighborhoods, the business community and community leaders. To promote the spirit of benevolence, friendship, sociability, goodwill and tolerance among the youth of our community; to cultivate and improve the moral and civic standards of the youth of the community; to provide a safe meeting place where the youth of the community may enjoy educational or social benefits and athletic activities under competent supervision.
Our mission is supported through our various programs.
Our basketball program seeks to inspire youth, to practice the ideals of sportsmanship and to make the game “fun”. The program stresses learning lessons of value far beyond the playing, such as, self-discipline, teamwork, concentration, friendship, leadership, and good sportsmanship.
