Recreational Youth Basketball
This recreational basketball program is for boys and girls in Grades 1-8. Players must be able to commit to a one-hour practice one night per week (grades 4 - 8) between the hours of 5:00PM and 9:00PM plus a game on Saturday. To register, you must submit a completed and signed Registration Form by November 1, 2019 or enroll online. Any registrations accepted after the November 1 deadline will be subject to a $20 late fee, and participants may be placed on a waiting list. Team placement is not guaranteed for late registrations. If your child has a problem making practice on a certain night, please note it in the space provided; and we will do our best to accommodate it (you may choose ONE). All teams are selected by the Parks and Recreation staff, and placement is final. We do not honor requests for teammates, coaches, practice times, or facilities. Practice night requests by late registrations will not be honored.
Should any participant be placed on a Middle School basketball team, refunds can be requested if you are withdrawing from the Parks and Recreation basketball program. If there are not enough players for at least 4 teams in an age group, there will not be a league for that age group and refunds will be issued.
