This is a competitive league for teams that are serious about winning and looking for a challenge.
This is a recreational league for teams looking to enjoy a lower-pressure game of basketball.
While we realize everyone plays to win, the emphasis in both leagues should be on having fun.
Youth Basketball Leagues
The youth basketball program is a recreational league for boys and girls, grades 1-6. The league is designed for young players to learn fundamental technical and age-appropriate tactical skills and practice sporting behavior while having fun. Teams are kept small to maximize playing time.
Practices and Games
Teams have a one hour weekday practice, and games are played on Saturdays and Sundays. Practice times, days, and locations are determined by volunteer coach and gym availability. After the registration deadline, teams are formed, rosters and schedules are distributed to coaches, and coaches contact players and their families with team information. If you have a conflict with your team’s practice time, please contact your center supervisor.
Volunteering to coach
We rely on volunteers to coach our recreation teams. If you are interested in volunteering to coach, please contact your local community center.
Uniforms and Equipment
At the start of each season, players receive a new numbered, reversible jersey. 1st and 2nd grade games are played with a 27.5” basketball. 3rd through 6th grade girls' games and 3rd and 4th grade boys' games are played with a 28.5” basketball. 5th and 6th grade boys' games are played with a 29.5” basketball.
You may register online or in person at your local community center. Please contact your local community center with registration and team roster questions.
Players registering after the registration deadline will be placed on a wait list. Placement on the wait list does not guarantee placement on a team. Players on the wait list will be added first to teams in need of additional players.
Team Formation and Friend Requests
Boys and girls play in separate divisions split by grade. If there are not enough players at a particular grade to form a division, we may combine grades.
Players are placed on neighborhood teams: determined by a combination of school, local community center, and the availability of volunteer coaches. Players who register by the deadline may ask to be placed on a team with one friend. However, the request must be mutual: both players must request each other. We cannot honor requests in cases where players request more than one friend or link friends in a circular request: friend A requests friend B, friend B requests friend C, friend C requests friend A.
Please coordinate your friend request before registering to ensure that it is mutual.
We are unable to keep teams together from year to year. Coaches may not request players, and players may not request coaches.
