In-House Youth Basketball

The Grayslake Park District’s Youth Basketball League is designed so all athletes have a chance to play! Girls and boys (ages 2nd-8th grade) learn fundamentals, strategies, and teamwork from volunteer coaches.

Players can only have one friend request. Both friends must request each other or the request will be denied. Age groups may be combined, depending on the number of participants enrolled.
