Youth Basketball

The City of Athens Parks and Recreation department operates the Athens youth basketball league.  The league is for boys and girls ranging in age from pre-k through 6th grade.  The focus of this recreational league is to teach the fundamentals of basketball, introduce new players to the game, and to improve the health of the players through physical exercise. This is done with a maximum two-hour per week commitment, with one hour set aside for practice and one hour for games and with all players playing a minimum of two complete quarters of each game. 

Practices will begin in December and will be held at the former North City and Westside elementary schools during the week. Games are currently scheduled for the following Saturdays: January 6, 13, 20, 27, and February 3, 10, 17, 24, with the possibility of some Friday evening games, at Athens City Middle School.

Applications are also being accepted for volunteer coaches and assistants. Anyone wishing to coach, or assist, will be required to pass a background check.  Coaches must also complete the online training courses below.
