The D-League is the perfect program for younger boys and girls who can’t wait to jump into basketball for the first time. Participants will have fun while learning the fundamentals of the game. To help practice the basics of shooting, the baskets are lowered to eight feet. A junior size basketball (27.0”-27.5”) is used to help each player work on dribbling and passing. Man-to-Man defense is taught by using colored wristbands worn by each player. Practices are held on Saturdays; games are played on Sundays. Players should wear appropriate athletic attire (shorts and gym shoes). A game jersey and season-ending trophy will be provided to each player. Players will be assigned to teams based on the school they attend and the amount of volunteer head coaches from each school. Please indicate which school your child attends on the registration form. This is a parent-coached program; anyone interested in coaching should submit a coaching application form to Kent Hengels via email at khengels@barringtonparkdistrict.org.

Rookie League (1st – 2nd Grade): for first time players or players that are new to basketball.
Pro League (1st – 2nd Grade): for players with previous instructional and/or league experience.

Levels may be combined based on enrollment. Registration deadline: 12/3 at 8:00pm.
$25 late processing fee after deadline (sorry, no exceptions).
