THE RIM RECREATION LEAGUE
For the 2019-2020 basketball season grades 3rd-8th will be playing their games at The Rim in Hampton NH. The decision to move to The Rim was to help keep registration costs down and to have all games take place in one location to help limit traveling for families. The game schedule for all levels is still being developed, but games may take place on Saturdays or Sundays. Brentwood Recreation understands that Sunday games maybe difficult to attend, but this decision was made to help keep costs and traveling down for the community. Any questions or concerns please contact the recreation department.
