The Jefferson Lab basketball team is presently dormant. It
had been sponsored by JAG
(Jefferson Lab Activities Group) for a few years.
We played in the Newport News Parks & Recreation Adult Basketball Winter Rec League.

- Will there be a team in the future ? If someone else wants to organize it, great. I can give you some advice about how to do it. But if I were the organizer, here's what I would worry about:
- We lost all our games in 2008, the last season we played. This upset some people and we ended up having trouble finding 5 to show up to games.
- We were not very competitive in 2007 either. Won one game, similar attendance pattern.
- We need 8 to 10 guys committed to showing up !
- Everyone should be aware of what they're getting into. Some info about that is below.
- The Newport News Winter League runs from approx. Dec 1 to mid-Feb. We normally played in the C league, a lower level of competition. There is also a Spring league in York County and a Newport News Summer League but they are A leagues.
- Even in C league, most players are young (20s) and the level of play is like above-average YMCA pickup ball. There will usually be 2 or 3 guys on a team who played high school ball. Two referees work the games, the teams wear uniforms, and scorekeepers keep score.
