We start the weekend of December 7, 2019 and end the weekend of March 14, 2020.
The elementary and middle school boys divisions include players ages 8 to 13, grades 3 to 8, who attend public, private or parochial schools. (Note: Players age 7, grade 2, may register at the discretion of division managers.) Regularly scheduled clinics and games are held Saturdays or Sundays in public school gyms on the Upper West Side.
Players age 8/grade 3 play in coed Grade 3 Division starting January 4, 2020. Players age 12/grade 7 play Sundays only.
Players at every level of skill and experience are welcome to join the League. At the start of the season, there are no teams, no uniforms, no “positions.” With the support of experienced professional basketball coaches, youngsters develop and improve individual skills while learning the fundamentals of team play. Once balanced teams are formed, uniforms are distributed and the games begin. The program is recreational; the play is low-key. And a tried and true rotation system ensures equal playing time for all! Check our Registration Information page for fees, preliminary schedule and additional registration details.
Special note: The League has reserved places for children who attend schools in District 3. We encourage the involvement of new families from the neighborhood.
