The Bloomington Youth Basketball league focuses on basketball fundamentals and the application of learned skills. Leagues are coed through grade 3; girls play in a girls-only league beginning in grade 4.

All Bloomington Youth Basketball player assessments, practices, and games take place at the Twin Lakes Recreation Center.

Season includes weekly practices and games one night a week. Teams practice two nights a week for the first two weeks of the season, then one night a week for the remainder of the season. Practice times and days are determined by the coach.

Parent/player requests for placement on specific teams will not be accepted. All requests must be submitted by volunteer coaches.

  • Registration deadline is Friday, Jan. 5. Registrations will NOT be accepted after the deadline.
  • Practices begin the week of Jan. 15.
  • Season runs Jan. 15-March 10.
  • Games begin the week of Jan. 29.
  • Expect to play on Saturdays throughout the season in an effort to finish prior to Spring Break.

Space is 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.
