Bethlehem Girls Basketball Club: About Us

About BGBC
  • Competitive travel teams for girls in grades 3-8 who reside within the Bethlehem Central School District.

  • 5th through 8th grade teams are created thru a tryout process.  Tryouts are necessary to ensure players are placed at their appropriate skill level to promote positive experiences and growth. No previous experience is necessary
  • Through these tryouts, two teams (A & B) are formed at the Biddy (5th/6th grade) and Junior (7th/8th grade) levels, which compete in the Capital District Girls Basketball League. Teams are formed based on skill-level regardless of grade within that level.
  • We try to place all players on a team, so after tryouts we will create additional teams at these levels based on player availability, skill level, sufficient gym time, and availability of coaches.  These teams participate in the Troy CYO league.
  • The number of teams created at the 3rd and 4th grade level will be based on sign-ups. 
  • Generally teams will have a maximum 12 players.
  • Travel season is from October thru late Feb/early March. 3rd & 4th grade teams may start a little later and end a little earlier.
  • During the season the schedule is usually two (2) practices up to 90 minutes each and one (1) game per/week.
  • BGBC currently does not have a rec or "house" program.
  • Each team is presented with opportunities to play in tournaments.  Usually over holiday or vacation breaks.
  • Parents are expected to volunteer for concession/admission during home game nights. 
  • Deposits are required for uniforms.  Uniform deposit checks will not be cashed if uniforms are returned clean and in good condition.
  • BGBC also offers additional playing opportunities through AAU, summer leagues and camps.  Information related to this is posted on this site throughout the year.
