The Hornets are one of about ten teams in each division of
the Carroll County Basketball League (CCBL). The league is made up of teams from
throughout Carroll County (plus one from Howard county) in Maryland. The Gamber
Hornets are affiliated with the Central Carroll Recreation Council and are
sponsored by the Gamber/Smallwood Optimist Club.
The Hornets have two teams in each division of the CCBL. The
'A' division team is made up of 6th grade boys and 8th grade boys. The 'B'
division team is for 5th grade boys and 7th grade boys. Some of the other teams
combine their team with 5th and 6th graders and 7th and 8th graders. We have

continuity of coaching styles and experience. The Hornets invite boys from
Westminster, Gamber, Finksburg, Sandymount, and surrounding areas to try out for
