WE WILL POST LEAGUE UPDATES HERE AS THEY BECOME AVAILABLE. UPDATE: WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 27th
KINDERGARTEN THROUGH 5TH GRADE: All Kindergarten through 5th grade teams have coaches. All Kindergarten through 5th grade players should have already heard from a coach and should be starting practice this week if you haven't already. If you have not heard from your coach, please call us at 229-259-3507.
Uniform distribution is happening this week (the week of 11/27). If you miss your uniform pickup, please do not just come the following day. Make up dates/times for picking up uniforms are: Monday (12/4) through Thursday (12/7) from 9 AM to 6 PM and Friday (12/8) from 9 AM to 2 PM at the VLPRA Admin office.
We are working on game schedules. We will post an update here and put the schedules on our Schedules/Standings page as soon as they are ready.
MIDDLE & HIGH SCHOOL: We are working on merging/creating teams and matching coaches. The middle and high school VLPRA teams don't start playing until the school basketball teams are finished. We have to utilize the school gyms for practice, and those aren't available until the schools are done with their leagues. We understand that means there is a delay from the time we finish registration to the time we start middle/ high school. However, we find it is less confusing to do all registration at once. Thanks for understanding.
Play for your grade and your school in our school-based youth basketball league! We hope to have a boys team and a girls team for every grade at every school in Valdosta & Lowndes County. Open to Kindergartners through 12th graders. Look for your child's grade and then your child's school. You must register for your child's current grade and current school. Children in private schools or charter schools may register for their school. If the private or charter school team does not make, those children must play for their school district. This means private or charter school children who live outside Lowndes County can only play if their team makes. Children who are homeschooled must play for the school they are districted to attend.
We practice and play games in VLPRA gyms and select school gyms. You typically play 2-3 games per week. We plan to start practice in November and games before Christmas break. The season is typically done by March.
VLPRA provides uniforms. Participants will check out uniforms and return them at the end of the season.
