Basketball: Winter Recreational League    

Boys, Grades 2-9 and Girls, Grades 2-6.   To register online, tap here! Or, print out the “Individual Winter Basketball Registration form 2019” and bring it to Parks and register.

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. Early registration deadline for returning players to get on last year’s team is Fri, Nov 9. First practices will start the week of Nov 26th!

Poulsbo has partnered with Bainbridge Island P&R to improve the number of teams at each grade level! Upper 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!!!  Call 360-779-9898 more information.

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.  Each child gets their own ball!
