Welcome to the Greater Severna Park Athletic Association Green Hornets Girls' Basketball program website. Our program is run by an all-volunteer force, so we greatly appreciate their involvement and your support in making the program a success. We try our best to continually improve the program. But most of the good ideas come from the participants in the program, so we are open and receptive to your input and ideas. Please feel free to email your thoughts and ideas to the Girls' Basketball Commissioner.

Registration is now open for Girls Basketball for the upcoming 2016-2017 Season. To register to play at any age level, please click on the “How To Register” link on the left hand side of this page. This will take you to the registration forms webpage, where you should click “Player Online Registration Form.” Follow the prompts and input your daughter’s information.

We try very hard to balance the sometimes competing goals of developing the most talented players for the local high school programs while including as many girls as possible for their recreational needs. Obtaining gym space in fulfillment of these goals remains our biggest challenge, but we will continue to seek quality options in this area. Our excellent working relationship with the Anne Arundel County Department of Parks and Recreation helps keep us going.

To help alleviate some of the administrative burden on our all volunteer force, we will be looking to increase the use of this website for conducting the business of the program. We encourage you to check back here often for the latest program information, and we thank you for your support.

We offer several options for players from 1st through 12th grade.

Girls Senior (Scrub) League Information and Schedules

Girls in the program.

ABOUT THE PROGRAM: The Girls Basketball program will be run entirely during the winter season. We will continue to field our competitive select county teams that will play in the Anne Arundel County Saturday league as well as playing in the competitive Arbutus league on Sundays. Our club league teams will play other Green Hornet teams in their respective age groups throughout the winter at schools located in Severna Park.

No specialized equipment or training is needed to participate (play or coach) in the Green Hornet Girls' Basketball program; just a pair of basketball shoes, practice attire and the desire to learn and have FUN.

Girls' SELECT County Basketball: Our SELECT basketball program is intended for girls who want to play at a more competitive level, with players their same age, against other teams in the county. I highly encourage parents and players to consider trying out for a SELECT team. There are some misconceptions about the SELECT program worth clarifying:

  1. It is not a “travel” team; games are played in the county.
  2. The additional time commitment is small—only about an hour per week (practices are usually 30 minutes longer) compared to our REC program.
  3. You do not to be an All-American to play SELECT. The county teams play at three different levels, so coaches can match their team’s skill level and play other teams of similar skill.
Selection to the SELECT teams is by try-out only. There may be more than one team in each age group, dependent upon how many girls try out. If you register your child for winter select basketball, but she does not make the team, you will be notified and your daughter will be placed on a CLUB team. You also have the option to have your account credited or your money refunded.

SELECT teams are set by age. Since they play in the county league, the county sets these restrictions. This program determines age based on the age of the player as of September 1st.

Girls Club Basketball: The Girls CLUB Basketball program exists to provide local community girls in grades 1-12 an opportunity to develop an appreciation of sportsmanship in a team environment while developing basic basketball skills in a less competitive environment. The CLUB program this year will have more age divisions to minimize the age, size, and experience difference for girls playing on the same team. We will have a Clinic League for all 1st and 2nd graders. Our Junior League will have three age divisions: 3rd-4th grade teams, 5th-6th grade teams, and 7th-8th grade teams. As we have done in the past, our Senior League will be open to anyone in 9th through 12th grade.

There are going to be some changes this year in our CLUB program, largely based on feedback from players, parents, and coaches.

Some of the key changes include:

In the CLUB leagues, we will work hard to balance special requests to play with friends and skill/size across the teams. This is always a challenge, and not everyone will get exactly what they want—but we will do the best we can for as many of the girls as we can. We should never have a CLUB game with a score of 28-0 at halftime.

As in the past, there will be some modified rules for the younger age divisions. This year, we will clarify and consolidate those rules, work with the referees and coaches so everyone understands the rules, and post them on this website.

COST: Club basketball $100.00 / Select (County) basketball $150.00.

SEASON: The season for Girls basketball runs from November to early March.
