Youth Sports

WE WILL BE CLOSED OCTOBER 24TH AND WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PROCESS ANY BASKETBALL REGISTRATIONS.  


The last day for youth basketball registration is October 25th.  

Information

The Parks and Recreation Department offers a full range of sports activities for the youth in our area. We offer baseball, softball, basketball, and football. Children 4 years to 15 years of age are eligible to participate in most of these sports. The age at which your child may participate depends on the sport of interest. In order to better serve the area, we hold registration for an entire month preceding the sport. BIRTH CERTIFICATE AND WATER BILL ARE REQUIRED AT TIME OF REGISTRATION!!

Player Participation

Each player is guaranteed playing time in each game; However, players MUST attend practices to remain eligible to play. If three practices in a row are missed without an explanation a player may be benched for one game. Please keep the coaches informed of problems which might keep a player from regularly attending practices or games. 

Conduct Policy

I understand that in extreme cases of rowdy or disruptive behavior on the part of my child, myself, family, group or team we may be subject to being barred from further participation in the organized recreation program and Recreation Department property. Rules governing organized recreation activities will be made available upon request. The following policy applies for fans, coaches and players. Unsportsmanlike conduct or any other unfair or dishonorable conduct WILL result in ejection from the game and the park. Upon further review, additional action may be taken. In the event a player or coach is ejected from the game he/she must leave the bench or bleacher area and sit out that game and the next scheduled game. Coach MUST leave the building or field.

Team Placement

Your child will be placed on their team based upon age, previous year's team or through the draft. The only exception to this system will be in a case where health is a consideration. The transportation of your child to practices and games is your responsibility. There will be no special requests

Basketball 

Welcome! We are ready to begin another season of Basketball. We anticipate a greater number of players this year than ever before! The season will begin Saturday December 14, 2019. Not all teams will play on this date. Each team is guaranteed a ten game season. The registration fee will include the cost of a jersey and shorts which players will keep at the end of the season. Please be very careful as you select sizes. The uniform will be ordered in accordance with your instructions. Lost or damaged uniforms will be the responsibility of the player. Registration dates are September 16 - October 25, 2019

Coaches

The selection of coaches for teams is one of the most important duties of the league. Our coaches work on a volunteer basis and receive no payment for their efforts. Your support will be welcomed and appreciated during the season. Keep in mind that the only difference between you and your child's coach is that they are able to make the time available to conduct practices and coach during games. A meeting will be held Wednesday, October 30, 2019 at Warriors Hall (inside Crestview's police department building.)
