Just a reminder that the 3rd and 4th grade boys evaluations will be held Sunday night, October 21st at 6 pm – 6:45 pm @ Bow Elementary School for boys with the last names beginning with A through L. For boys with last names beginning with M-Z will be evaluated at 6:45 – 730 pm. Players should arrive at least 15 minutes early. We will have evaluation jerseys for the players to wear. Players should come to the evaluations wearing shorts, tshirt, sneakers, and a mouthguard (optional). Please be certain to bring a basketball and water bottle.

Due to the small size of Bow Elementary gym, we are asking parents to remain in the hallway during the evaluations.

You can expect your child to perform various drills in front of the BAC Basketball Committee, prospective coaches, assistant coaches and neutral evaluators (collectively “evaluators”). A portion of the evaluation will involve scrimmaging against other 3rd and 4th grade players. Every registered player will be assigned to a team (i.e. no players will be cut).

The process we have successfully used for several years is that an evaluator assigns a letter grade to each player, which is, in turn, converted to a number grade. The evaluators anonymously turn in their grades to a coordinator, in this case, Mark Murray, who will tabulate the results. The highest evaluated players (assuming they opted to be considered) may be assigned to a Manchester Suburban League (“MSL”) team and the remaining players are divided evenly between the remaining Merrimack Basketball League (“MBL”) teams. The “equal division” can be accomplished by a coaches’ draft of the players or by an arrangement between the basketball committee, or coaches’ or otherwise.

This year we have 48 players signed up to play, which means we anticipate having 6 teams of 8 or 9 players/team. Like year’s past, we plan to have one 3rd and 4th grade MSL team along with five additional MBL teams. It is anticipated that the MSL team will be determined Sunday night and the MBL teams shortly thereafter.

Should you have any additional questions or comments please contact Mark Murray (, your 3rd and 4th grade boys’ coordinator this 2018-19 basketball season. We purposefully assign a coordinator to each group that does not have a personal interest in the outcome.

Bow Athletic Club is now accepting registrations for our 2018-19 youth basketball program. The program is open to Bow and Dunbarton residents in 1st grade through high school. Evaluations of players begin as early as Sunday 10/14/18, so do not wait to register. Registration to close October 13th. Failure to register before that date will result in a $25 late fee (if space is available). To register go to: and for more information, visit our website at: or contact Bryce Larrabee (

At you should be able to find under the “Basketball” Tab everything you could ever wanted to know about BAC basketball including general information, frequently asked questions (which is very detailed), camps and clinics, etc.
