The northwest Seattle youth basketball league starts soon, with fall season registrations closing on Friday, Sept. 28.
Run by the Boys & Girls Club, the league runs from Oct. 8 through Dec. 15 at the Ballard Club (1767 NW 64th St). The league is only for youngsters; pre-kindergarten through 6th grade only.
Here’s the fall league schedule, by grade:
- PK-1st Grade (Ages 5-7) Biddy Basketball (T/TH/F 2x/week)
- 2nd-3rd Grade Boys (Mondays & Wednesdays)
- 2nd-3rd Grade Girls (Thursdays & Saturdays) – 8’6”-9’0” hoop height
- 4th-6th Grade Boys (Saturday afternoons only)
All players will be placed on teams based on buddy and coach requests, school, grade, and other factors to best balance teams, Boys & Girls Club athletic director TJ Parry tells My Ballard. “Our recreational basketball leagues are great for all players to development their game.” To volunteer as a coach or team sponsor, contact Parry at email@example.com for more information.
There’s also a winter league, which runs from Jan. 7 to March 23.
