Summer Youth Basketball League

All registered players have been successfully drafted onto teams by volunteer coaches.


Official rosters were sent out to coaches on Wednesday, July 3rd.  However, due to the holiday weekend, not all coaches have had a chance to connect with parents yet.  Your patience is greatly appreciated!  If you do not hear from your child's coach by the end of this week, please let us know.


The season start date has been pushed back to July 16th.  Our Basketball Commissioner, Anthony Carter, is working extremely hard to finalize the season schedule.  Once finalized, it will be posted on our website.
