Basketball League 2014
Posted on November 13th, 2013 by admin

Our 2014 youth basketball season is upon us already!  We’re excited about some new features this year.  We’ve updated our registration forms to color brochures.  We’re looking forward to some great uniforms as well as T-shirts with color printing.  We’re always trying to improve and make it a great league for the youth of our communities while keeping the cost as moderate as possible.

If you need another brochure or just want to view one, you can print one off from the links below.  Otherwise, if you don’t have access to a printer or need any questions answered, you can contact Jesse McKendree at 740-949-3508.  We will have extra forms available during our registration as well.

Registration will be on Saturday, November 16th from 9am to 11am.  We use this time to allow kids to try on uniforms as well as an opportunity to watch them dribble and shoot to get an idea of skill level.  We allow children in Kindergarten through 3rd grade to play.  The cost is $50.
