WELCOME BACK! We are up and running for the 2021-22 season. 

Registrations will be live on 11/1/21.
Due date will be 11/19/21. Check back between those dates for online registration.

This season will look a little different than past years, but it will help us ease back into programming and make sure kids start off knowing the basics and increasing their activity levels in a safe way. 

Harpswell Youth League Basketball is a league play program for boys and girls in grades 3 - 6. It is part of the larger Ararat Youth Basketball League made up of Topsham, Harpswell, Bowdoin, and Bowdoinham.

Teams are made up in the following ways:
- Girls 3rd  & 4th grade combined
- Girls 5th & 6th grade combined
- Boys 3rd & 4th grade combined
- Boys 5th & 6th grade combined
----- Teams may be combined into co-ed teams if we don't have enough kids registered to field full teams by gender. Grades cannot be combined. 

This program aims to teach the foundations of basketball while providing an opportunity for each child to play in the recreational season. This program runs approximately 12 weeks.
PRACTICES: Will begin the first week of December. They are usually 1 - 1.5 hours and are held on weeknights.
GAMES: We expect to start playing games with Topsham, Bowdoin & Bowdoinham in January. Confirmation through MSAD 75 and scheduled are TBD at this time. This is all subject to change with COVID protocols and guidelines.
