Extra-curricular programs are an integral part of student life at Hamburg School. Our primary goal is to enhance the academic, social and emotional development of our student body through offering a variety of athletic, artistic, literary, and musical activities. After school activities promote time management skills; allows for exploration of diverse interests; builds self esteem, teamwork abilities, and goal setting. The Hamburg School encourages our students to become involved.

Boys’ basketball is a competitive winter sport that begins in mid-November and continues until the end of January. The boys compete against other teams in the Sussex County area.  There are approximately two games per week. Practices are an hour and a half long and run Mondays through Thursdays.  Practices rotate weekly between early and late practices.  When a week of late practice arises, a study time is available for students from 3:00 to 4:30.  During this time, students may complete homework and work with subject area teachers, when they are available during after school hours.

We plan to split each week with early and late practices amongst the two teams. One team will have early practices on Monday/Wednesday and the other team will have early practices on Tuesday/Thursday. The practice times will change if games fall on days where one team would end up having all late days. Players must have a change of clothes and sneakers. This year we will be rotating Friday shooting practices from 3-4.
