In an effort to accommodate more teams this season, the registration deadline for Boys Basketball has been extended to December 7. We will also be offering Competitive, Intermediate, and Recreational divisions for each age group. To determine which level your team falls into, please see the descriptions of each division below:

Recreational: Your team does not play in multiple leagues throughout the year. Your team may have a few first time players or players with little experience.

Intermediate: Your team may play in a couple of leagues throughout the year. All of your players have played before and some may play on other teams as well.

Competitive: Your team plays in multiple leagues throughout the year in addition to tournaments. All of your players are experienced and highly skilled.

Every effort will be made to keep these divisions separate; however, teams from different divisions could play each other depending on the number of teams registered. Each team will play a total of eight games. The first four games will be scheduled based on the level indicated at registration. The last four games will be scheduled based on how each team played during the first half of the season.

Please note that all head coaches must successfully complete a background check. Additional information about background checks can be found here.

To register your team, please fill out the registration form found in the coaches packet by Friday, December 7.
