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.


Girls and boys in grades 3 through 8 can get in the game with our summer league! The league consists of two weeks of practice followed by eight games with an emphasis on game play, participation and fun. Grades are based on the previous 2023-2024 school year.
