All leagues are formed by the grade of the player, not the age with the exception of the 4 & 5 year old Lil Jammers. Your child must turn 4 years old prior to December 31st 2011. 7th & 8th grade teams are formed by the ASD Middle School that the player would normally attend. 3rd-8th grades teams are based on their registered ASD Neighborhood School. Physicals and birth certificates not required for participation in this league.
Practices begin the week of September 26th. One scheduled practice during the week, 1 1/2 hours long. Coaches will contact you about your practice time and location after the coaches meeting. Lil’ Jammers practice prior to their Saturday games only!!

Annually we have over 1000 children in basketball who need you and appreciate your time & talent given. Thank you for considering the YMCA as a place to donate your precious time, please take a few minutes to give us some information on line or in person about yourself so we may get you started in making a difference in a child’s life.
