YOUTH BASKETBALL
LEAGUE
Grades 1-8
Veterans Park District is proud to present its annual Youth Basketball League. The basketball league will be available for grades 1-8. All children will receive participation trophies along with team shirts. Please help the program continue to grow by spreading the word throughout your child’s schools and activities. Team shirts are provided before the start of the  rst game. Coaches will contact parents with their prac- tice times and dates. Teams practice once or twice a week depending on grade level and gym space. Read the descriptions below to become familiar with our basketball leagues.
(Information provided on the Youth Basketball League is subject to change at the discretion of Veterans Park District if necessary.)
Due to our enrollment numbers growing in the past
2 years, some grade levels might be practicing at different locations, playing a different day or playing at a different location. This is determined closer to the start of the season and determined by the number of children enrolled in our league.
Coaches will provide parents with schedules on their day of practice. Veterans Park District will provide IHSA certi ed referees for this grade level. This league places a strong emphasis on fun and learning – not competition.
GRADES 1-2
The season is scheduled to begin at the end of January on Saturday mornings. Teams will practice once a week. On game day, they will also practice for the  rst 20 minutes and then play a non-competitive game after. Coaches will provide parents with schedules on their day of practice. All children have equal playing time. At this level we stress the importance of teamwork and fun. Coaches are allowed
to be on the court to encourage children to pass, dribble, shoot and help avoid committing fouls.
