Join Appleton Parks & Recreation for our
upcoming Youth Basketball league, now serving children in
Kindergarten through grade 6. This is one of our fastest growing
programs, and will provide a structured, curriculum based approach
to help kids develop age appropriate skills, teamwork, and a
lifelong enjoyment of the game! Teams will participate in an
8-week season, featuring weekly games and regular practice
opportunities. As with all of our leagues, our basketball program
promotes an inclusive environment built on sportsmanship, equal
playing time and FUN!
2018 LEAGUE REGISTRATION HAS ENDED. Did you miss

We will place as many kids as possible from our league wait list to
fill in open spots on team rosters. Wait list placement
is first come, first served until open spots have been
filled. Due to the nature of wait list roster placement, we
cannot guarantee that children will be placed with their
school. However, we will make every effort to place wait
listed children with their school classmates when / if
NOTE: Wait listed children with a parent willing to
serve as a HEAD COACH will be prioritized for
