During the winter we offer Pony Basketball for Kindergarten-3rd grade and we have County League basketball for kids in 4th-6th grade.

Rec fees in general are $55 for the first child , $50, for the 2nd, $45 for the 3rd, and $40 for the 4th with a max out of pocket family cost of $190 per season. If you qualify for free or reduced lunch Rec fees are $35 per participant with an out of pocket max of $140 per season. Some programs that have shorter seasons or do not incur as much overhead have a reduced fee, while some programs that incur greater overhead may have a larger fee. Fees are posted next to the activity.

Volunteer coaches are essential to the success of all of our youth Rec programs. Without the coaches we would not be able to offer the programs that we do.

Please consider being a volunteer coach for one of our programs.

Coaching is an extremely fulfilling activity, you may set out to to help kids but by the end of the season you realize the kids have given you so much more than you have given them.

By volunteering to coach a youth team you may very well be the positive influence a child needs. 

You may open their eyes to a whole new world, or even help unwrap hidden potential inside an individual that they never knew was there.

By volunteering you are granting our youth the ability to participate in youth activities. Where they learn to grow as individuals, operate as a member of a team, make friends, and memories that last a lifetime. 

Rec fees are waived for the individuals who have parents volunteer coaching.

Our youth and I extend our greatest thanks to those who make the decision to forever be someone's "Coach".
