Coed Basketball Leagues

Kindergarten / 1st Grade Clinic League - Coed

The Kindergarten/First Grade Clinic league will consist of 2 one hour clinics per week.  The first part of the clinic will focus on skill development followed by a scrimmage with another team.  The League will run from early November through February.  Practices/games are held Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings.

2nd / 3rd Grade League - Coed

This coed league is an introduction to competitive Basketball via instructional team practices and 5 on 5 full court play games.  A strong emphasis is placed on teaching and learning basic fundamental Basketball Skills (dribbling, passing, shooting, etc.),   Basketball Rules, Teamwork, Sportsmanship, and “having fun”.     

Player evaluations will be held following registration and prior to the start of the season and are utilized by the League Coordinator to form even/balanced teams at the onset of the season in the interest of fair play.  Therefore, requests for specific coaches, teams, teammates, etc. will be honored to the best of the league's ability, but cannot be guaranteed.   All players will receive considerable playing time during games (based on the league rules each child will play a minimum of 1/2 of each game). This league will keep scores during games and use referees.  The season will involve Round Robin play and a tournament at the end of the season (playoffs).   The Player Evaluation date will be held in early November.  All registered participants are strongly recommended to attend.  Parents should make every effort to set the date aside. Each participant will be given a 30 minute scheduled eval time.  Players will be sized for jerseys at this time as well.

Teams will have one practice and one game per week.  The League is scheduled to meet for games on Saturday mornings with practices held once a week on Thursdays. However, practice day subject to change based on permit approvals and gym space availability.   Beginning in November, teams will meet once per week for practice sessions only, and then will move to one practice and one game (Thursdays and Saturdays) per week for December thru February.  The league culminates in a double-elimination playoff tournament and all-star game at the end of February.

Players will receive NCAA numbered moisture-wick jerseys.  All Head Coaches are ASEP certified.  Our baskets are set at 8' and we use a youth-sized 27' basketball.

Girls Basketball Leagues


We offer girls only basketball as an alternative to our coed leagues.  We join with the Arbutus league to ensure an adequate number of teams for competition.  Arbutus is in southwestern Baltimore County, just across the Patapsco river from Elkridge.  Games are played in both Elkridge area schools, Arbutus schools and the Arbutus Recreation Center.  Travel times from Elkridge to games in Arbutus is generally no more than 15 minutes.  

Our season begins in early November with player evaluations and team formation.  After teams are formed and coaches identified we try to practice twice a week until games begin in mid-December.  Practices are usually on weeknights but may occasionally be on Saturdays depending upon coach and gym space availability.  Coaches determine practice times and locations.  

8U League - Girls

The girls 7-8 league is primarily instructional. Games are played twice weekly.  One weeknight and Saturday mornings/early afternoon. Coaches serve as referees.  Games consist of four eight minute quarters.  The score is not kept during the game and there are no standings for the league.

10U League - Girls

The girls 10u league introduces players to more competitive basketball.  Games are played twice weekly.  Games consist of four ten minute quarters.  Game scores are recorded and league standings are kept.  

12U League - Girls
