Since 1988, the Safe Haven West Side Basketball League has been offering affordable, recreational basketball programs for school-age children and teens. Originally a winter league, the organization has expanded and now provides year-round programs geared to players at all levels of experience. We offer full and partial scholarships to families in need.

There are several ways you can show your support for Safe Haven West Side Basketball League. We urge you to get involved in this exciting and rewarding community activity. All contributions are tax-deductible. The League is a project of The Resourceful Family, Inc., a nonprofit 501 (c)(3) organization.

Sponsor a Team

We are inviting businesses, organizations and individuals to show their support of the children in the community by sponsoring a team. The cost of team sponsorship is $500.00; the benefits in free advertising and community goodwill are priceless. Team sponsors will have names and/or logos placed prominently on team uniforms and our new website will feature links to our sponsors’ sites.

Erica Sanborn Scholarship Fund

Erica Sanborn spent countless hours as a volunteer teaching various sports to children and adults with special needs. She could connect with the most challenging children and make their day and their life just a little bit better. In her memory, the Safe Haven West Side Basketball League has established the Erica Sanborn Scholarship Fund to assist families with financial needs who wish to enroll their special needs children in the Champions Division.

Player Volunteers

Want more time on the court? Players can earn community service credits on Saturdays and Sundays serving as referees, assistant coaches, score/timekeepers, or Special Needs buddies. It’s a terrific experience helping younger players learn the game, and it’s fun. Volunteering is also a great plus on college applications (and can provide lively personal essay material).
