Basketball Registration Ends
Thursday, October 21, 2021
This is the deadline to register for Valdosta-Lowndes County Parks & Recreation Authority’s Youth Basketball League. Our school-based league offers teams for each city and county school, as well as Scintilla Charter Academy, Valwood, Georgia Christian, and more.
The league is open to all Kindergartners through 12th graders in Valdosta and Lowndes County. Teams are divided by school, grade, and gender. For instance, each school may have a boys team and a girls team for each grade. Those teams will wear uniforms with their school name and in the appropriate theme: Wildcat, Viking, Valiant, etc.
Registration closes 6:00 PM, October 21st at www.vlpra.com. Parents can also register their children at VLPRA’s main office at 1901 North Barack Obama Boulevard (formerly Forrest Street).
The season runs December through March. Each basketball player’s jersey and shorts are included in the $85 registration fee, which also includes games, practices, post-season, and all equipment.
VLPRA is also looking for volunteer coaches. Every coach must pass a background check to receive a roster, so the VLPRA asks that potential coaches call the main office immediately at 229-259-3507.
