Boys & Girls Club youth basketball leagues starting up soon

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 for more information.

There’s also a winter league, which runs from Jan. 7 to March 23.

  1. I guess everyone is afraid of commenting on this post for fear of being branded a child molestor and having a parade and/or march organized against them on 3rd avenue downtown during the height of rush hour.

    1. Jesus. Look at where your mind is at. Get help, will you, sockmaster?

      Normal people refrain from commenting on the grounds that they have NOTHING TO ADD. It’s youth basketball. It’s fine. It doesn’t need commentary or criticism or spin or snark. It’s fine.

      You had to come ruin it with your filthy mind. Ban this disgusting motherfucker permanently, Swedes? Please? Or disable all comments. At least on posts like this. There’s no need for this creep to even be here.

        1. Projection of what? Kids were enjoying the park, while you and your 25 fake screen names were blathering on nonsense about the urban wasteland a new park would create. For the several families — and their KIDS! — the park is a welcome amenity. You keep denying it so I took photos. The photos prove, once again, that you’re CRAZY.

          Let’s look a this: “Aren’t you the one taking photos of kiddos at the new park?” YES! I WAS! SO WHAT? What exactly? The only one leaping to gross, disgusting conclusions is YOU. Nobody else is going there. This perfectly harmless story about youth baseball was never going to go there until YOU came along. Who is the creep here? It’s you.

          What is the common denominator in all these dumpster fire threads? It’s you. You are the one who brings the gross, you bring the nasty, you bring the sick thoughts. You, and you alone. Nobody else.

          1. Dude!! Check your references! I am NOT all these other folks you keep claiming or thinking I am. LOL. If you want to assume everyone who thinks you’re the neighborhood creep is only just one person because that makes you feel better, then be my guest.

            I personally don’t know how many people make fake names on here, but newsflash, my name is actually John and I don’t use my last name on here because I don’t want to end up as part of an impromptu pedo photo shoot by people like yourself.

            Again, why are you taking pics of kids????? Do we need to check your basement??

          2. I post pictures of families enjoying the parks because you keep posting false claims that the parks are dangerous and decrepit. I will continue to do so. You’re very stupid, and everyone hates you.

          3. Lmao! I actually wasn’t the person that argued with you about that park, but if you want to think I am, then go right ahead.

            Also, for your information, I’m a successful 20 something with lots of friends, who is fit and loves to travel and have fun! I love my life and just happen to enjoy calling out BS on this forum because some people are stupid.

            Let me guess, you’re over 60, bitter that millennials have “taken over” the old Ballard, and wake up in the morning bitter at life while you take your daily regimen of many pills to regulate your health conditions. Sounds about right. Have you considered therapy?

          4. So I’m gonna guess that I sunk your battleship since you’re not denying anything I said. I’m usually pretty good at reading people. It’s ok. Everyone gets old, looks don’t last forever. You can still be a stand up member of the community, it just takes a little effort. Start with baby steps. Maybe instead of photographing small children in parks, perhaps volunteer to clean up trash by the locks? Happy to provide some ideas if you need. Just let me know. We’re here for our elderly neighbors.

          5. Lol, yes, I’ve hit the mark for sure. I picture…….old man, balding, never married, no friends, scowls at kids to “get off my lawn”!

            My work here is done. Next! :)

          6. Done? Really? Done! Well you said it. You’re done. Goodbye then. You’re a busy successful guy. You sound so young and twentysomething, with your hip lingo. Sorry to keep you, I know your schedule is tight! Stuff to do!

            Bye! Bye bye! Thanks for playing.

          7. Make sure you clear your schedule on Thursdays and Saturdays for those 2nd and 3rd grade girls!!! ;)))

          8. What? God you’re gross. Wash your mouth out with soap, you creepy slimeball.

            “I’m popular and successful!” = loser.

          9. Yep, creepy slimeball, because I’m the one who has ADMITTED to taking covert photos of underage girls.

          10. Nobody but you has a problem with it, do they? Why don’t you call 911 if you think something is amiss?

          11. Yeah, nobody but me and all my “alter egos” that you think are one in the same. Wonder what they’d find on your hard drive if it got searched? Better rename those folders something other than “upskirtshots_underagegirls”

          12. Then report it, stupid. They’ll get a search warrant and see what’s on my hard drive.

          13. For their sake, I don’t think they want to see what’s on your hard drive…lol
