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.




Information for all Basketball Divisions

Each player must wear the league uniform, which consists of a blue and white reversible jersey. Any player who does not have a blue and white reversible jersey or who needs to replace theirs will need to purchase one for an additional fee. School sites for practices are to be determined by the Park District.

Team Assignment Note

Teams are created according to the following criteria:

  • School attended
  • Grade
  • Balance of gender
  • Roster size
  • Mutual carpool request

In general, our goal is to keep players from the same school on the same team. Should enrollment numbers and roster maximums not accommodate this practice, schools may be combined to form teams. Team maximums are based on enrollment numbers at the time of the registration deadline.
