7th/8th Grade Boys Basketball Division


New, starting with our basketball program and moving forward, we will be implementing a resident/non-resident fee for all of our youth sports programs. If you are within Covington city limits or believe you are you must verify your residency HERE to be approved for the resident activity fee.
Our winter youth basketball league is geared toward providing an opportunity for recreational basketball players to sharpen their skills and broaden their knowledge of basketball with an emphasis on fun, participation, and sportsmanship. This division is for our first-time and returning players that want to learn the fundamentals and further advance their shooting, dribbling, and passing skills. Sportsmanship and teamwork will also be strongly encouraged.
Games:Games will be played at Mattson Middle School, Cedar Heights Middle School, Jenkins Creek Elementary, Covington Elementary, or Cedar Valley Elementary.Mattson- 16400 SE 251st Street, CovingtonCedar Heights- 19640 SE 272nd Street, CovingtonJenkins Creek- 26915 186th Ave SE, CovingtonCovington - 25811 156th Ave SE, CovingtonCedar Valley - 26500 Timberlane Way SE, Covington

Practices: Teams are scheduled to have one practice per week starting the first week of January. The practice day and time are determined by our volunteer coaches. The practice lengths are also determined by coaches. For ages PreK-2nd grade, practices will generally be 30 - 60 minutes. For grades 3rd-8th, practices will generally be 60 - 90 minutes. If you have a certain practice day that works best for you, please make that request during registration. We will try to match you with a coach that has a similar preference. No request is guaranteed.
Requests: We allow you to request playing with friends, playing for a specific coach, and certain practice days. We do receive many requests and try our best to meet all the requests. However, we cannot guarantee your request will be fulfilled.
