Basketball Information
Basketball season is upon us and now is the time to register! Last year we had 500 players, and anticipate even more this year. The league is available for players 3-18 years old. The eligibility age is determined based on the player’s age as of 12/31/2018.

Note: Players who play for school teams in 8th grade or below can participate in this league.

Starting in 2018 all divisional age groups will be Co-Ed.
Age groups are 3/4, 5/6, 7/8, 9/10, 11/12, 13/14 & 15-18 year olds..
All players who sign up will be placed on a team.

3-6 year old's do not tryout and will be placed on a team and contacted by a coach. They will practice before each of their scheduled games. A pizza party, trophy presentation and hot shot competition will be held at end of season.

Practices for 7-18 year olds will be held at various gyms in the Fern Creek area. Each team will have a one-hour practice on a weekday evening. There may be some weekends where a team plays more than one game due to the very limited availability at the High School.

FEES: Registration fee for 7-18 year olds is $125 per player; and fee for 3/4 & 5/6 year olds is $90 per player.

NOTE: If more than 2 siblings in a family participate, the cost for the 3rd player is ½ price

COACHES / ASSISTANT COACHES: If you are interested in volunteering to be a coach or assistant, please mark the appropriate section on the registration form.

SPONSORS: We need one (1) company sponsorship for the back of the shirts for each team. The cost to sponsor a team is $100. If a player finds or provides a sponsor for his/her team, then his/her registration fee is only $90.00 (7-18 year olds) and only $60 (3/4 & 5/6 year olds).

Note: The sponsor’s check must accompany the player’s payment / registration form. We will need camera ready artwork for any company logo's, etc... to be included with the shirt sponsorships. Deadline for shirt sponsors is November 1st!
