A great introduction to Basketball!  Boys and girls in 1st and 2nd grade will play in our co-ed “Instructional League”. This is a six week league. Each player will receive a t-shirt.  This league does not require evaluations; everyone in 1st and 2nd grade is welcome! Bring a 27.5" ball if you have one (we have some to borrow too) and a water bottle and be ready to learn! This league will run starting in November.  Check the "Instructional" tab for more information.

If you are interested in helping coach at this level, please contact the commissioner of the league.  Contact link can be found under the Board tab.

The fee for this league is $65.00. **No late registrations will be excepted** (limit of 30 players) (plays Tuesday nights, see instructional tab for dates and times)

JV girls rec-travel (grades 5 & 6), will practice in Hartland, but will play in a league outside of Hartland.  This requires you to travel to the league.  A league will be chosen by the Board.  For the 2018-19 season, the JV league will play in the Big Cat league at the Swish Zone in Whitmore Lake.  A game schedule will be released once it has been sent out by the league.  Big Cat typically plays games on Sundays.  2 games per Sunday.  Practices will be once per week for 2 hours, but may change based on the league chosen.  Days/times/locations of practices will vary.  Practices will begin in October and games start in November.  A minimum of 9 players are required to run this league.  Due to no evaluations and the early start to the season, all registrations must be done online.  No walk-in registrations will be accepted for this league.

*****NEW THIS SEASON*****QUAD-CITY LEAGUE FOR VARSITY GIRLS*****
