Participants will be placed on teams, have practices and play games against peer teams. Games are hosted by the communities in the league with most of our games being played at Anoka, Blaine, and Coon Rapids schools. Teams will have two to three days of basketball per week consisting of two games and two practices. Practices could be either Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday with games on Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. Practices/games will start in December and go through March 10th.
