League Information

Our recreational basketball leagues run twice a year.  Our primary season is the winter season.  In the summer we hold a condensed season.  Although teams typically have one practice before the games start, for the Summer 2020 season, games will start immediately.  The season consists of six games played on weeknights.  There are no standings nor an end-of-season tournament.

Players are placed in divisions based on their grade during the past school year (2019-20 school year).  Players are placed on teams with their classmates and neighborhood friends. Volunteer coaches help make LMVSC recreational basketball a blast for everyone!
