Youth Basketball is our favorite indoor youth sport. Our program has a Winter Season for participants age 4 through 16. Our program has a Summer Season for participants age 7 through 16.
Jerseys and shorts are furnished by Parks and Recreation. Participants are required to furnish their own socks and shoes.
Youth participants in the Bluffton area will mainly practice and play at Buckwalter Recreation Center. Participants in the Beaufort area can expect to mostly practice and play at Burton Wells Recreation Center and Lind Brown.
Our schedules are designed to maximize results through age-appropriate practice and game times.
Registration for Winter Basketball always begins September 1 and ends the third Friday in October. Late registration for Winter Basketball ends the following Friday and is accompanied by an additional $20 late fee. Registrations received after the "late registration" period are subject to approval or denial by management only. Practices start in mid-December and games typically begin early January. The season generally ends mid-to-late February. All-Star games are finished by the first week in March and are held at select locations across the state of South Carolina. This requires additional practices and games for a select number of nominated players, as well as an additional uniform fee and entrance fee into the tournaments.
We are often asked to provide detailed information about practice and game times months before registration. We cannot provide that because:
1.) The number of participants determines the number of teams in a division.
2.) Participants are randomly assigned to a team. We use a random draft to select participants to build fair teams. We do NOT guarantee any special requests for participant team placement.
3.) Volunteer Coaches meet together to select practice times based on availability after late registration ends.
Registration for Summer Basketball always begins April 1 and ends the third Friday of May.
Late registration for Summer Basketball ends the following Friday and is accompanied by an additional $20 late fee. Registrations received after the "late registration" period are subject to approval or denial by management only. Practices start in mid-June and games typically begin in early July. The season generally ends early August. There are no All-Star selections for the Summer Season.
