After School Basketball

The Wrentham Public Schools After School Basketball Program for 4th-6th grade students will start in January 2023! Games will take place on some Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. Your child will not have a game every day. Games will be played in the Gibbons Gym from 2:55pm-5:00 pm. It is fine to miss games, as this is an intramural program. We realize that children have other commitments! The teams and schedule will be sent home before the winter break and will be posted on the school website.
