Basketball is Back!

We are excited to announce the 2021 – 2022 Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Cruz County Winter Basketball Season!

Registration will open at 8:00 am on Saturday, November 6th

About our Basketball League:

The Boys & Girls Club’s basketball league has a long and storied history. Over the years, we’ve built an incredible experience for our youth with the fantastic support of parents, families, coaches, referees, scorekeepers, and both the Golden State Warriors and Santa Cruz Warriors. 

At its height before the COVID-19 pandemic, the Boys & Girls Club basketball league had 36 teams, all of which had a weekly practice time and games each weekend. Our partnership with the Golden State Warriors Jr. Warriors Program and the Santa Cruz Warriors enabled us to host our end-of-season tournament at KP Arena. The youth especially loved getting a chance to play on the NBA court and the end-of-season BBQ banquet followed by a trip to a Santa Cruz Warriors game. Watching kids grow and develop each season is a highlight for those who participated in our league over the years.  

Looking ahead, we are thrilled to re-launch the Boys & Girls Club basketball league for a scaled-back 2022 season, held in accordance with current COVID safety guidelines. Although details are still in the works, we encourage anyone interested in participating to keep an eye on our website; we anticipate registration will go live in early November. Player evaluations will be in early December, with practices starting in January and games in February and March. 

It will be a condensed season this year, but the expectation is that we will be back to a full league schedule in September 2022. It’s an exciting time to be getting back into basketball. League Director Bryon Windsor is looking forward to reconnecting with many of the players, coaches, and parents involved in years past. 

League Information:

  • The league will have four divisions: Biddy Ball (1st-2nd), Division 3 (3rd-4th), Division 2 (5th-6th), and Division 1 (7th-8th).
  • Each team will have ten kids and one to two coaches.
  • Every team has a one-hour practice each week at our downtown clubhouse gym.
  • Each team gets one to two games each weekend throughout the season, playing against each team in their division at least once. Each game is about an hour long.
  • Every team makes the playoffs.
  • We have referees and scorekeepers present to support every game.
