Goldenball Basketball

Team registration forms have been posted for the 2019-2020 Goldenball season.

Team registration begins Monday, October 14 and goes through Friday, November, 22.  Goldenball league games are an 8 week season beginning Saturday, January 11- February 29, 2020. We offer a Jitters Jamboree the first two Saturdays in December as well as an optional end of season tournament the first weekend in March (these are additional entry fee's). Once a coach or team representative registers their team a coaches packet is mailed with several additional forms, such as, league rules, practice facility lists and contacts, parent/player code of conduct forms etc.

Coaches Needed!
Goldenball is a team registration based program that relies on parent volunteer coaches! We offer two coach trainings geared towards teaching skills to young players and leading fun practices. Information on dates and locations will be included in the registration materials. 

Referees Needed!
Interested in becoming one of our Goldenball referees? We will begin our registration and trainings in October. Join our referees squad and help keep this program top notch! This is a great first job opportunity for high school and college students, retirees, those who can't get enough basketball, and a confidence builder and opportunity to learn another side of basketball. Learn more.
