Guru Notebook: How to Join Philly Summer League

(Guru's note: There is a post above this one on the WNBA mega-trade revealed Friday).

By Mel Greenberg

Just in time to help fill a bit of the void between the end of the women’s collegiate basketball season and ensuing coaching changes and before the day-to-day startup of the WNBA summer action other than when mega-trades are made such as what went down Friday, comes everything one needs to know about the summer fun here in Philadelphia.

David Kessler, the man who keeps retiring as commissioner but keeps coming back for more, has passed along the info for competing in the Philadelphia/Suburban Women's NCAA Summer League, which formerly had the Philadelphia Dept. of Recreation affiliation attached to it.

Prior to last summer most of the games were held at Northeast High School but again this time around the Renegades AAU facility – the Kelly Bolish Gymnasium -- in Hatboro will serve as the venue.

So what follows is everything from the commish, other than when the Guru is not running around the WNBA circuit he will provide as much coverage of the league as he can conjure will occur here.

In fact if any of you out there want to help the cause of coverage give the Guru an email notice. The scheduled action doesn’t begin until mid-June.

Though awards are not given per se, other than the championship trophy after the playoffs, a year ago St. Joseph’s Katie Kuester off some prolific three-point shooting was the star of the season.

Many Big Five players, past and present, as well as well-known locals who play elsewhere and outsiders who wish to find good competition here, participate.

Division II and Division III players also compete and the runnerup last summer was a first-ever for Division II when most of the Holy Family-dominated squad, past and present, advanced to the championship round, which is allowable under NCAA rules.

And now go ahead David:

2011 INFORMATIONAL LETTER

PENNSYLVANIA RECREATION AND PARKS SOCIETY

Hatboro, Pa. 19040

site rental, and league expenses – insurance, balls, books, postage, copying, etc.)

This is a draft league. Players can form teams, but cannot come into the league with a full squad. The league needs the flexibility to assign players to each team. This is done for parity and because NCAA regulations prohibit Division I players from playing with more than one college teammate (this does not include incoming freshmen, who are not yet officially enrolled in school.)

Division I players (except incoming freshmen) are required to submit a letter of permission from their Athletic Director to the league director or they will not be permitted to play. Letters can be submitted:
by e-mail, through regular mail, or delivered in person. THIS MUST BE DONE BEFORE THE PLAYER’S FIRST GAME! The league will be certified by the NCAA in the month of May. Status can be checked online (ncaa.org)
