Youth Basketball League Information




Ready for basketball? So are we. It is not always about what the scoreboard says but that every child is safe, has fun, and grows in the skill of the sport. Participants sign up individually and are drafted to a team by a coach based on their age, gender, and skill level. This ensures all teams are equal and balanced.


*We are changing the 14-18 age group into a 14/15 year old group and 16-18 year old group

Our League’s Focus
Our League’s focus and mission is to provide a program that will provide a program that will be fun, safe and foster growth in the skill of basketball. We also wish to provide instruction and coaching that is driven by the motivation that we want your child to become a better player while participating in our league. The program is designed to teach kids the fundamentals of basketball in a less competitive setting. This is what makes this league different from any other. We want kids to learn how to play the right way and then take what they have learned into competition.
