Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic the 2020 Girls Basketball Season has been postponed. We are hopeful we can try to offer some type of girls youth basketball league in early 2021. However, it will be mainly dependent on whether we will be allowed to use the Anacortes School District Gymnasiums. Please stay tuned and we will update information on this as it becomes available.
The Girls Recreational Youth Basketball League is run through the Anacortes Parks and Recreation Department. This league encourages fun, sportsmanship, equal participation and skill development. All players are required to play in the grade they are in at the time of registration. Teams will be formed by the parks and recreation staff. Teams may not be the same as the previous basketball season. Late registrations will be taken if space is available.
Games are generally played on Saturday’s starting late October and can go until Christmas Break. Games and practices are held in local Anacortes Elementary, Middle, and High Schools. To maximize fun and skill development, rules will be modified and baskets lowered for younger grade divisions.
We need coaches! Volunteer coaches are required to make this a successful program. All coaches must complete the required paperwork, which includes a background check. Coaches must comply with the Code of Ethics established by the National Alliance for Youth Sports. Call 360-299-1948 or email Dustin at if you would like to coach or have questions. Volunteer Coaches are what make this league possible. (We have numerous resources and we can train you to coach.)
Participant Equipment needed: All participants will receive a team shirt, which is included with their registration fee. Players need to provide their own sweats or shorts and proper athletic shoes, with non-Marking Soles.
