Youth Basketball League

 


Basketball PhotoJoin 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 it?  You can still register for our league WAIT LIST. 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 possible.

NOTE: Wait listed children with a parent willing to serve as a HEAD COACH will be prioritized for placement!
