Winter Basketball League

The Winter Basketball League is a developmental community league that has been in existence since 2008. We are excited to bring back a Takoma Park favorite this winter!

The Winter Basketball League program goals are to:

  • Introduce youth to the fundamentals of basketball
  • Encourage personal improvement, sportsmanship, and fun
  • Provide comparable playing time for all participants
  • Meet new kids from community and surrounding areas

Winter Basketball League Registration Information

All divisions fill well before the season starts so don’t wait to sign up! If a division is full, your child will be placed on a waiting list and contacted if a spot on a team becomes available.

Safety Precautions

The league will follow the current COVID guidelines from the CDC and DHHS.

Team Requests

All team requests (i.e. coach, player, practice) must be made at the time of registration to be considered. Requests are on a first-come, first-serve basis and are not guaranteed.
