Recreational League Goals
Our objectives are to develop and offer the players the opportunity to learn the 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 Winter 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.
This league’s 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 Winter 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.
* Divisions are subject to change based on registration numbers
