2023-2024 Recreational Basketball - Program Information

2023-2024 DYA Recreational Basketball

The DYA Recreational Baseball program is open to 1st through 12th grade boys & girls and consists of 16 divisions. Players must be registered to play with their grade level.

Space may be limited. Sign-ups are on a first-come basis. Once individual leagues are filled and a waiting list forms, please continue to express your interest by signing up on the waiting list. If we are able to have enough players, coaches, and gym space to expand the league before the league meetings, we will make every attempt to do so.

Sign up if your child is trying out for their middle school or high school basketball team. If your child makes their school team, we will issue you a refund.
