No program could last over 35 years like Mountain Top Basketball without its dedicated group of volunteers.  The four basketball trustees are Pete Massung, Gene Galantini, Chelsea Capstraw, and Mark Robertson, who is also a member of the West Orange Board of Education. Combined, these trustees have lived in West Orange for over 50 years and have had 8 of their own kids come through the Mountain Top League Basketball program. 

Since 2010, over 1,200 children have benefited from this exciting program.

Local businesses such as Modell’s Sporting Goods and Mark & Julie’s Ice Cream have supported the Mountain Top League Basketball program and have committed to be annual sponsors.  

The deadline to register is Saturday, November 1, 2014. For easy online registration, please go to
