2021 Youth Basketball Update
At this time, we are not offering youth basketball due to the pandemic. Please check back for updates or stay connected with parks and recreation through our monthly newsletter and social media.
The City of Grand Junction's basketball program focuses on fundamentals, sportsmanship, and on-court basketball skills that our youth players will learn this season.
- Youth Basketball is offered every fall for girls 2nd-6th grade, and winter for boys 2nd-8th grade.
- A new 1st grade coed league has been created for both fall and winter leagues.
For more information or questions on our basketball programs, contact us at 970-254-3866.
Registering With Coaches Request
Did you love your coach from last year? Here's how to register on their team!
- Register by the registration deadline.
- Make a coaches request or a player/carpool request and tell us which one is more important (you may not get both!)
- 2nd through 8th grade teams are limited to 10 players. 1st grade Coed teams are limited to 6 players. Once a team reaches it's limit, they are considered full. Requests will be taken on a first come, first serve basis based on the time the registration was received.
- Late registrations are not guaranteed any requests. This includes coach requests, player/carpool requests, and event school location requests. So make sure you register early!
- Pick your grade, girls/boys or 1st grade coed.
- View the information below for a detailed list of dates, schedules, questions, and information.
- Get registered early to make sure coach/player/carpool requests are approved and to avoid late fees.
Coaching Youth Basketball
We can't do it without you!
- Plain and simple, it's an awesome experience to have with your basketball star!
- You are likely already attending the games and practices anyways.
- We need you! This program is only possible with volunteer coaches! Plus, we offer you age appropriate drills, guidance along the way, and head coaches will receive a $10 coupon for future registration once team equipment has been returned.
All Youth Basketball Coaches must watch and complete the required Coaches Training Video prior to the start of season.
