Dear Basketball Players,
Welcome to Above the Rim, Long Island’s best and most organized Men’s Basketball league. Entry fee is $800 per team with an additonal $35 per game referee fee. Customized reversible jerseys of each players desired size and number can be ordered for an additional 15$ each. A season will consist of 8 regular season games and playoffs. Every team will qualify for the playoffs. Each round of the playoffs is single elimination. The champion from each division will recieve medals, towels, one trophy and a discount of $250 off the team's league fee for the following season. Each season will also consist of an All-Star game in which players are selected by the league office based on stats and regular season performance. At the All-Star game we will hold a 3pt shooting contest made up of the league’s best shooters. Prizes will be given to the MVP of the game and to the winner of the 3pt shooting contest.
At Above the Rim we will diligently record stats including; points, rebounds, assists and three pointers made. All stats will be posted online weekly for all players to view and compare. Games are currently played Sunday through Thursday. Scheduling will be as flexible as possible but teams must be able to compromise in order to provide the best compeition avaliable.
Above the Rim has ZERO TOLERANCE FOR FIGHTING as it is our goal to make this an enjoyable experience for all who play. We are committed to running our league in an organized and classy fashion and are committed to providing our players with a basketball experience superior to that of any other leagues on the Island. This is a Men’s league and we expect our players to act like Men and treat all referees and fellow players with respect. Our gyms are currently the LI SportsPlex, William Floyd High School, Mercy High School, the Patchouge YMCA and Upper Room Christian school in Dix Hills. We are always looking to add more gyms to accomodate our growing number of teams. Please act like adults and treat our home gyms with respect so that we can keep Above the Rim playing at these facilities.
