Bitty Basketball Winter Season

January 11th – March 18th

Description

Bitty Basketball is the right answer to your child’s instructional Basketball league needs. This co-ed program will focus on providing a fun learning environment to all players of all skill levels. To ensure balanced play, participants will be assigned to balanced teams via a Draft Day. Teams will play in an 8 week season against teams that include other park districts and schools. Each team will be assigned a coach and have practice time and an arbitrated game each week (after draft day). Your registration fee includes A team jersey and an end of the season Pizza Party.
