Basketball League – Early Bird Registration DEADLINE
Volunteer coaches introduce participants to the fundamentals of playing basketball through weekly practices and weekend games. The league emphasizes proper techniques, knowledge of the rules, team strategy, participation and fun. Enrollment in the winter is limited, so register early. EARLY BIRD RATE ENDS OCTOBER 15, 2022.
Each participant is provided a jersey. Practices take place one night during the week (Monday-Thursday) at either a School District 202 school or at the Prairie Activity & Recreation Center (PARC). Games are played Friday-Sunday at either a School District 202 school or at PARC. The team formation process takes place closer to the start of the program. Due to the number of athletes in the program, teammate, coach, practice location or practice night requests cannot be honored. Practices start in December, taking time off for the holidays, with games starting in January. Players in the 5th grade level and above may be required to participate in an evaluation process in attempts to balance teams. The evaluation process takes place the week of November 14. Information will be provided closer to that time.
VOLUNTEER COACHES ARE NEEDED. Any adult interested in coaching a Plainfield Park District youth sports team must complete a Volunteer Application and background check form prior to being considered a coach. If you are interested in coaching a team, please contact Dan at Schaffer@plfdparks.org.
