MARA YOUTH BASKETBALL INFORMATION: You may be aware that the Olmsted Regional Recreation Board is in the process of dissolving and will soon be replaced by the new Middletown Area Recreation Alliance (MARA). We are pleased to announce that the winter basketball program for students in Grades K–6 will continue under MARA. This year’s program will include the following minor changes:

1. The basketball program will focus more on skill development and less on competition under the direction of Coach Chris Hughes. High School varsity coaches and players will volunteer their time with the program. In turn, no MARA practices/games will be held on Tuesdays or Fridays so that the elementary and middle school youth players can attend the High School games and support the District’s teams.

2. There will be a travel league for boys and girls in Grades 5 and 6 with tryouts beginning in early November.

MARA is eager to get this year’s basketball program started. If you have questions about the program, please email

Thank you in advance for your patience during this transition.
