Youth Basketball

January 2022 - March 2022

Come out and join us in this year’s Youth Basketball League.   We will be offering two leagues: Recreation League and Competitive League.  An athlete cannot play in the competitive league and recreation league at the same time.

The Youth Basketball League is affiliated with the Texas Amateur Athletic Federation (TAAF) in order to provide more for our basketball program.  By associating with them, it allows our participants to participate in end of season tournaments and the opportunity to play with fellow players in surrounding cities.  It helps to 1) level the playing field across the board in terms of skill, 2) to eliminate the possibility of patrons playing for the “wrong” team, and 3) to allow coaches and participants the chance to have a choice in being a part of a partial draft.

Recreation League

In the Recreation League, registered individuals will be “blind draft” per age division regardless of what school they attend.

Every individual registered player will be placed on a team and will receive a basketball jersey on their first day of practice.  All practices will be held on a Monday - Friday at DPISD gyms and all games are played on Saturdays at DPISD gyms as well.

More Information

  • Practices and the season will begin the week of January 10, 2022.
  • The Head Coach of each team will pick days/times/locations of practice.
    • You will be notified by the end of December, by the Coach, when and where practices are located.
  • Registration opens to the public on September 8th
    • $70 for Deer Park Residents
    • $75 for Non-Residents
    • Shirt size required when registering
  • Ages 7-12 (child must be 7 by September 1, 2021)
    • The division in which your child will play is determined based upon the child’s age as of September 1st of the current year.  This means a child who is 12 on September 1st but then turns 13 on October 1st, still gets to play in the 12U division.  
    • With so many participants in this program, we do not make specific accommodations for any players such as coaching preference, school practice location, transportation needs, game schedule needs, etc. with the exception of siblings.  If you have multiple kids in the same age/gender division, they will be drafted to the same team (unless otherwise requested).  If the kids are in different age divisions, the younger child has the option to play “up” a division but the older child cannot play “down.”
  • You can register over the phone at 281-478-2050 or online. 
  • Registration Ends November 28th at midnight!
