Our basketball program is one of the best programs in the area. During the winter, we sport both boy's and girl's teams. The teams start with instructional teams in the 4th grade. In grades 5, 6 the boy and girls continue to learn the fundamentals of the game, but also add a bit of competition - with playoffs getting introduced. The 7th and 8th graders compete for positions on the Varsity teams.
We have a spacious gymnasium, with bleachers, score board and sound system. All grades compete against teams in Camden and Burlington counties.
