Winter Basketball League 2013

About This Activity

The Winter Basketball League is a non-competitive, developmental, community league. Program goals are to: - introduce boys and girls to the fundamentals of basketball - emphasize that playing the game and being a member of a team are more important than winning by not establishing league standings or having playoffs/championship games - encourage personal improvement, sportsmanship, and fun - provide comparable playing time for all participants - meet new kids from community and surrounding areas Coaching Information: Volunteer coaches are always needed, training is provided.
