Barker High School

Great 2023-24 Season!

We want to send a big congratulations to The Council for winning a very competitive Championship over BK Elite! Also congratulations to Randy Chin for winning the Knock Out Championship and Will Carr for being the Three Point Champ.

We would also like to thank all the participants in High School Barker. It was another great year. To the graduating Seniors, we wish you well in your endeavors next year. For the under classman, hope you will all return next year.

Attached is a flyer for a basketball shooting fund raiser for the Jimmy Fund. It will be held on April 6, 2024 at the South Shore Sports Center. If you have any questions about the event, please contact John Mannion at

IMPORTANT: After many years, both Michelle and John plan to retire from the Executive Committee after next season. We are looking for volunteers to join us next year to learn the ropes of this amazing program with hopes they can ensure this program continues.

High School Barker Executive Committee

In Barker High School, the players are in charge. Players build their own teams, name their teams, create their own jerseys, and manage their own playing time during games. While adult referees will be at the game, adult coaches will no longer be there. However, one adult per team must be present while a team plays.


This League is comprised of 16 teams with players in Grades 9 through 12. Players live in Hingham but are welcome to register whether they attend HHS or not.

Official team rosters must have a minimum of 8 PAID players in order to play and a maximum of 12 players. Not more than 50% of any roster can be made up of players on a Varsity High School team.  This rule does not apply to Freshmen or JV teams/players.

Each team also must have a designated Adult Contact who is at least 21 years old. This Contact is responsible for cascading communications; player conduct; and ensuring attendance by an adult at each game. 

Where & When

All games will be played Saturday nights at South Shore Sports Center (55 Recreation Park Drive, Hingham MA). The season starts in early December with playoffs running into March 2024.


Teams are responsible for supplying their own jerseys. Some teams design their own but teams can also wear youth Barker jerseys or other jerseys as long they have numbers, are reversible and are the same color.

Local custom jersey vendors include Beacon Sports, Rockland Athletics and College Hype.
