Due to our continued struggle to find a basketball director we have decided to partner up with a league that plays within the entirety of Jefferson County for the 2021/22 basketball season to provide an opportunity for the youth in our community to play.
In order to make sure teams are rostered and practicing within our our area, we will have you complete a no-cost pre-registration in our system and, once completed, you will receive information by email directing you to the league website where you will be able to complete registeration and pay for your player.
After the cancellation of last year's entire season due to COVID, we are incredibly excited to be able to be able to get players back in the game!!!
Registration will close on October 15th!
