Bloomington Youth Basketball Season II

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.

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. There are a total of seven games, with no postseason tournament.

Practice times and days are determined by the volunteer coach. Times can vary between 5:30-9:30 p.m. based on the coach's schedule.

  • Registration deadline is Friday, Oct. 1.
    Registrations are NOT accepted after the deadline.
  • Season runs October 11-December 16.
  • Practices begin the week of October 11.
  • Games begin the week of October 25.

 

Parent/player requests for placement on specific teams are not accepted; all requests must be submitted by volunteer coaches. 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.
