Youth Hoops League (Grades 1-12) FALL 2018-WINTER 2019

The Youth Hoops League is a recreation basketball league with an emphasis on fundamental skill development.  Standings are not kept in this league because our emphasis is learning, not winning.  Teams are grouped by skill level, school, grade and gender.  Due to the popularity of the league, no friend requests will be accepted. Registration is limited and is available on a first come, first serve basis.  The registration deadline is October 10th unless maximum is met prior to this date.

Skills Observation: Players will be placed on teams determined by skills observation, school, grade and gender. Returning players in grades 4-12 do not need to attend the skills observation. ONLY NEW PLAYERS and PLAYERS IN GRADES 1-3 must attend one of the Mandatory Skill Observations on 10/11 or 10/14. Returning players are not required to attend the Skills Observations. The time for each division will be emailed once the player has registered. No friend or coach requests will be accepted this year.

All Skills Observations will take place at Pine Valley Community Gymnasium (3000 Pine Valley Road)
