SPRING 2020 5v5 (Draft) League: Tuesday or Thursday Nights (Individual Entry) – Starts May 5th or 7th
Each season the quality of play in the 5v5 Draft Leagues continue to improve and we expect this upcoming season to continue in that vein. This is the 24th season of the Tuesday night 5v5 Draft league and now the SECOND at its new home in Cambridge, the brand new court at Cambridge Street Upper School.
The 5v5 Draft League is perfect for those who are looking to play in a competitive league but don’t have a full team of players to enter into one of the team leagues. All teams will be made up of 8 players who like to play basketball, get a run in and to push themselves athletically. The age range in this league is 22-40 with the average player age in the mid 20s.
C.A.C. Basketball is the most organized, well run and unique collection of recreation basketball leagues in the Boston area. We strive to be the most player friendly league anywhere. The extras outside of the basketball games are what sets C.A.C. Basketball apart. The fee for 2 officials is included in the price of the league and every game features an electronic scoreboard, comprehensive stats, player profiles and write-ups of games. You won’t want to miss the message boards for league banter, interviews, awards, and more! In all, C.A.C. Basketball looks to make YOU the star and wants to make sure the everyone knows about it.
