Boys and Girls: Grades 2-8

This is the best recreation basketball program available in the area! Our league provides consistent practices during the week (routinely 2 practices per week) for the duration of the season, team assignments based on player/coach/parent requests simplifying ride shares and friends on the same team, constant contact with the league coordinator for problem solving and scheduling issues, and 2 paid officials for all games. Games are on Saturdays!

2nd through 5th grade divisions play half court, man to man defense only, to help each player be actively involved in play.  This is the safest, most enjoyable league your child will have the opportunity to play in. The emphasis continues to be on equal playing time, safe play, and good sportsmanship. Girl and boy program specifics are listed below.

Poulsbo has partnered with Bainbridge Island P&R to improve the number of teams at each grade level! Divisions will be split into gold and silver divisions if numbers support and, for 6th grade and above, there will be end-of-season playoffs!!! Visit for a registration form or call 360-779-9898 more information.


Boys and Girls: Grades 2-5                           

For girls and boys in grades 2-5, we have a winter recreational basketball instructional league. This league offers 2 practices per week, half-court defense only and mandatory rotations, solid competition, and a fun, learning experience. League divisions will be by grade and competition is against other area teams, same grade, and gender. 2nd and 3rd grade boys and girls will routinely use a hoop height of 9 feet for games. 5th grade teams will have the option (if both coaches agree) to play normal HS rules! 2nd and 3rd grade teams will use a junior size ball; 4th and 5th grade teams will use a 28.5” ball.

Saturday games, weekday practices; games start the first weekend in Jan through mid-March. Calling all coaches! North Kitsap & BI gyms.

Girls: Grade 6 AND Boys: Grades 6-8         

Games start the first week of January after the Middle School boy’s season ends! Enjoy the benefits of your school training by putting your skills on the court for a full season of games! With enough teams, we will divide divisions into silver and gold brackets to keep talent levels close. All 6th grade boys and girls will use a 28.5” ball; 7/8th boys will use the official size men’s ball. All divisions in this group will compete in an end of season playoff, culminating in a day of championship play, Saturday, March 10!
