Youth Basketball Leagues

Basketball leagues are offered in the summer, fall and winter. During the fall and winter leagues, an eight-week season is played on weekend mornings at the Recreation Center. Practices are held once a week at a District 58 school for one hour. During the summer season, two weeks of practice are followed by games on Wednesday nights only. Our goal is to keep players from the same school on the same team. Should enrollment and roster numbers not accommodate this, then players from different schools may be combined to form teams. Divisions are divided by grades ranging from Kindergarten through 8th grade. Check the seasonal guide for early registration dates.

  • School sites for practices are to be determined by the Park District. Because not every District 58 school is available for practices, some teams may practice at a neighboring school rather than the school attended by team members. Teams may also share gym space, if necessary.

  • Please note: A weekly practice will be scheduled for each team but is not always guaranteed and is dependent on facility availability. Some teams may share gym space at a District 58 school with another team for practices depending on availability and school schedules.
