Andover Recreational Youth Basketball Update

By Scott Allenby, Proctor Academy

The Town of Andover Rec Committee is excited to yet again offer youth basketball to children in Grades 1-6. This season, we have over 70 children signed up to take part in the program, including 27 first and second graders taking part in clinics each Sunday afternoon. Program directors Scott Allenby, Jen Hauser, and Chris Cloutier are thankful for the volunteers who have stepped in to help coach each team and to all the parents whose positive attitudes on the sidelines have helped keep the kids development as young basketball players at the center of attention.

Volunteer Coaches:
1st Grade – Mark Tremblay
2nd Grade – Lindsey and Scott Allenby
3/4 Boys: Scott Allenby and Samantha Poulin
3/4 Girls: Lauren Koron and Bob McNutt
5/6 Boys: Peter Shedd and Brian Reynolds
5/6 Girls: Gregor and Amy Makechnie

The 3rd/4th Grade and 5th/6th Grade teams compete in the ICB Basketball League based out of Penacook along with all the other feeder elementary schools to Merrimack Valley High School. Games take place on Saturday mornings and run through mid-February. For a complete list of games, visit
