Middle School League

Middle school boys and girls (grades 7-8) play on separate teams in this league, which focuses on basketball skill development and applying skills in game situations. The season includes a practice and two games every week, and concludes with a single-elimination tournament. Practice days and times are determined by the coach.

NEW-Player/parent requests for placement on specific teams will not be accepted. All requests must be submitted by volunteer coaches.

Season runs January 18-March 10.
Practices begin the week of January 18.
Games begin the week of February 1.
Registration deadline is Friday, January 8. Registrations will not be accepted after the deadline.

Spaces are limited to a maximum number of players per age group. Once the maximum number of players is reached for each league, registration for that league will close. If your child's league fills, you may opt to place your child's name on a wait list. We will contact you if space becomes available.
