The Department of Parks and Recreation offers youth basketball leagues for boys and girls entering grades K, 1, 2, 3, and 4.

Early registration (through Sept. 20):  $55

Open registration (through Oct. 4):  $65

Uniforms and Equipment: Players must furnish their  own shorts, socks, and shoes. League fee includes a ($20 approximate value) NBA jersey.  NBA jersey is reversible and will have a number on the back of each side. 

Coaching: Each team needs a head coach and can have no more than 3 assistant coaches. If you are interested in coaching a team, please fill out the appropriate volunteer application as well as the background check authorization form. Click on Sign up to Coach on the left side of this page for those forms. There will be a training and rules meeting and each head coach must attend a NAYS clinic either online or in person. Dates for those meetings / clinics will be sent to all head coaches.

Everyone plays:  All players must have equal playing time (unless disciplinary action is needed - parents need to be informed).  

Practices:  practice facilities are not guaranteed.  Depending upon the location that your coach can secure practice time, you may have to help with the cost of the rental. Teams will receive a discounted rental rate at The Linc.

Buddy RequestIf you want to ensure that your child is on the same team as his friend or sibling please make sure the two kids "buddy" each other on their registration forms. The buddy request will only be honored if both parties "buddy" each other.
