Overview

The youth basketball program is a recreational league for boys and girls in 1st through 6th grade. The league is designed to teach young players fundamental technical and age-appropriate tactical skills and enable players to practice sporting behavior while having fun. Teams are kept small to maximize playing time.

Volunteering to coach

We rely on volunteers to coach our teams! If you would like to coach, please contact your local community center.

 

Uniforms and Equipment

At the start of each season, players receive a new numbered, reversible jersey. In first and second grade, all players use a 27.5” basketball. In third through sixth grade, girls use a 28.5" basketball. In third and fourth grade, boys use a 28.5” basketball. In fifth and sixth grade, boys use a 29.5” basketball.

Registration

You may register online or in person at your local community center. Please contact your local community center with registration 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 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 teams based on their local community center and the school they attend. Players who register by the deadline may ask to be placed on a team with one friend. However, the players must register for the same practice time and 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.
