Sign up Now for Youth Basketball

Register now through October 22nd for VLPRA's school-based youth basketball league!  It's open to K through 12th graders in Valdosta and Lowndes County.  

Teams are split by grade, gender, and school.  We anticipate each grade at each public school to have a boys team and a girls team.  Also open to private schools and Scintilla students!  

This is a recreational league where EVERYONE plays.  Practices and games will be held at local schools and at VLPRA gyms.  The one-time registration fee is $75.00 and includes uniforms, practices/games, awards, and equipment.  We are happy to announce that we have an Athletic All Star team as well as Academic All Stars to reward outstanding behavior both on and off the court.  

The season runs December through early March including a tournament.  ***Our middle school games will not begin until later in the season, immediately following the school system's basketball season.  

Games will be at area schools as well as at our gyms.  Games vary in days and times: there will be games on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings as well as Saturdays mornings but your team will play a max of two to three games per week.  Practice days and times are up to the individual coaches.  Typically once the season starts, teams only practice once per week. 

VLPRA reserves the right to combine schools and or grades as necessary.

****We will need several volunteer coaches!  Please contact us at 333-1853 if you are interested.
****Children who are currently participating in football, cheerleading, baseball, softball, tball, and volleyball will be able to play basketball as there is little to no overlap.  The only conflict is winter soccer- a child cannot play winter soccer and basketbal at the same time.
