Youth Basketball

With the recent rise of positive covid-19 cases in Dallas county, the City has decided to delay the start of the youth basketball season until after the first of the year.  This decision is out of an abundance of caution for player, spectator, and staff safety.  Community spread and COVID-19 conditions will be reevaluated on January 1 and a final decision will be made on whether or not the City will move forward with offering a league this year.  To accommodate the delayed start, the league schedule has been adjusted and is provided below.  


For boys and girls ages 5 - 14, this league is divided into two divisions, each with a different emphasis.
Division 1 (Competitive League) starts at 8U and is comprised of hand selected, pre-formed teams with a higher level of competition.

Division 2 (Recreational League) starts at 6U as is comprised of teams that are formed through a "draft" system by zip code. ** Teams in D2 may only have 4 returning players from the previous season or 4 coach's requests.
Both Division 1 and 2 will play seven league games and participate in a single elimination, end of season tournament. Player fees will include a jersey and player card for both divisions. Only Division 1 will have the option of purchasing their own jerseys or have the City provide them.
