Youth Basketball is offered in the winter for boys (12U, 14U, 16U, 18U) and girls (12U, 16U). Most recreation associations also offer 'Farm Leagues' for players under age 10.
Due to continuing hiring challenges and staffing shortages, youth basketball will only be offered for the 10-12 (12U) league for the winter season. Check with your area recreation association for additional registration details. Click HERE for the full statement.
