No shows for assessments will be picked at random in the draft. Evaluations will be held at the Paine Field basketball courts on the following dates:

Draft: The draft will occur immediately after the evaluations with the coaches. Participants are not present at the draft.

Schedules: Coaches will provide participants with schedules and t-shirts after the draft date

Divisions: The 2023 Summer Basketball League divisions will be determined based on registration. More information will be provided at a later time. If you have any questions regarding how divisions work, please reach out to Parks and Recreation at

The schedule will run Monday-Thursday during the week. Days for divisions will be released at a later date. Due to scheduling constraints some make-up games may need to be scheduled during the weekend. Times will vary.

All Star Game: We will have an All-Star game during the last week of the season.
Become a Coach: All volunteer coaches are required to fill out a coaching application and a background check in order to be eligible to coach. Contact Parks and Recreation at


When will we hear from our Coach? Within two weeks after the coaches draft has been completed, coaches will begin to reach out to each parent directly through an email and/or phone call. Game schedules will be released to you before the start of the season.
How do I pick the correct uniform size for my child? If you are new to our programs, we always suggest ordering one size larger just in case. Sizes can run small depending on the vendor used each sport. Sizes range from Youth XS to Adult XL. Once rosters are set, we order the shirts and sizes cannot be switched.
If we don’t like our team assignment/practice schedule/game schedule can we switch teams? 
Unfortunately we are not able to move players around once rosters are created & shirts have been ordered.
