Feb 26th Update: Now that the 2023-24 season has come to a close, we would like to thank our coordinators, coaches, players, parents, and referees for making this league possible. As a reminder, we are offering two great basketball experiences this spring for those that would like to continue to play and/or develop their skills (more information on these opportunities is on the front page of our web site). We hope to see you this spring and if not, have a great off-season and we look forward to seeing everyone again for our 2024-25 season.
