A basketball

The Travel Basketball Program is offered for boys and girls in grades 4 – 8 that are Woburn residents.  Any player that would like to be considered for a travel basketball team must attend one of the two evaluation days.  Players are picked for teams based on ability and skill level. Unfortunately, not everyone will make a team, but every player that would like to tryout is encouraged to do so. Practices are held 1 to 2 times per week in addition to games on Saturdays and Sundays.  If you have any questions regarding this program please contact the Recreation Office.

The Woburn Recreation Department will be holding an informational meeting on Thursday, October 17th at 6pm in City Hall to discuss the Dog Park currently being built at Ferullo Field.

The purpose of this meeting is to update the residents on the project and also to establish a Friends of Woburn Dog Park Group. We have been touch with other cities in towns regarding the protocols that they have in place for their established Dog Parks. All the representatives that we spoke to all agreed that creating a Friends of Woburn Dog Park is crucial for its success.
