About Needham Metrowest Basketball

The Needham Metrowest Basketball Travel program is a competitive program for boys and girls, grades 4th thru 8th. The winter program competes in the Metrowest Basketball League which includes over 80 towns and 1,000 teams.  Individual and team development in the sport are the major goals of the league in addition to developing our young players in a respectful and supportive team environment.  The program typically offers a higher and lower division team in each age group.  Additional teams are added as practice gym space and other factors permit.  Players who live in Needham or attend Needham schools through the METCO program are eligible.  Players must play in the grade level that they attend that school year.


Many questions about the program can be answered by viewing the FAQ section.  If you have other questions please email us at


Tryouts are posted under the Home tab and will be announced in the Needham Times and will be been communicated via an email to all parents of children who tried out the prior year.  Please note you must register before the tryout – no exceptions.
