Stanley Lane League
This winter, come join the wildly popular Stanley Lane Basketball League! The Stanley Lane Basketball League is first and foremost a developmental basketball league. All children have the opportunity to play on organized teams, participate in structured fundamental practices, and are encouraged to participate in basketball clinics. League fee includes t-shirt, trophies and the Youth Sports Awards Night. Practices will be held once per week on either Monday or Thursday evening. League games begin on January 5 and run through April. $200 / $150 Y Members.
As a developmental and fundamental youth basketball league, our "player assessment" period is a crucial part toward creating teams throughout each division. During the "player assessment" process, each young athlete will showcase their abilities as they rotate through four stations, while the coaches walk through each station. This assessment period helps the coaches and staff draft fair teams for fair play!
Please prepay in order to participate in Player Assessment.
