Recreational League Goals

Our objectives are to develop and offer the players the opportunity to learn fundamental skills while instilling life lessons and values such as character, respect, accountability, teamwork, and sportsmanship to all who will participate in the Sports Academy Spring Youth League. Applying the discipline of sports, all participants shall endeavor to teach sportsmanship in a team environment, physical fitness through individual effort, and wholesome well-being through physical activity and social association with other youths under proper adult leadership. The objective will be achieved by providing a competitive, supervised youth basketball rec league.

We focus is on the player experience. We hope all players will fall in love with the great game of basketball, meet new people, make new friends, better understand teamwork, make fantastic memories, and more.

That being said, our league performs a player evaluation, with independent evaluators, followed by a proven and well-established draft process. Simply put, this draft process allows the coaches to choose players based on their evaluations via a serpentine order with the goal of team parity and equality.

Sports Academy Spring Youth League practice times are offered indoors at Sports Academy once a week for an hour, and as space is limited, practice times may not be compatible with your or your coach’s schedule. Outdoor practices may be chosen by your coach as a solution.

Volunteers Coaches Wanted!

If you understand basketball in any aspect, we’d like to hear from you. We are in need of coaches for our youth leagues that range from grades 1st-10th. Contribute to a good cause, at no cost, provide leadership among our youth teams.

For youth sports players, participation is a chance to experience fun competition and learn new skills in a supportive, safe environment. Volunteer coaches help make that possible. Plus it helps you learn about the sport and spend some quality time with your kid. Volunteer head coaches help make this possible, assistant coaches are also welcome and if you are interested in either one fill out this form.

See Game Rules , 1-4 Grade Rules and Code of Conduct.

*** We also added something extra for all Spring SAYBL players ***
Each team will get a workout prior to each practice with SA Trainers in the Sports Performance area (football turf). The 45 minutes of Full Circle training is already paid for in the registration of the 8 week season.
League Teams (7U-16U) Description
Human development from birth to adulthood is a continuous process that requires key physical, mental, emotional, and cognitive stages.  Children of ages from 7-16 should focus on refining general fundamental movement skills.  An area of importance is speed training which includes activities such as acceleration and deceleration mechanics, rapid changes of direction, cutting drills, & agility that contributes to the Long-Term Athletic Development model. Bodyweight strength training is another essential area where athletes will learn to control their bodies/limbs during sports activities in skills such as planks, push-ups, and squats to lay the foundation for progressive strength training methods throughout human development.
