Basketball - Sign-ups for 2021 Season

Come join in the fun with ABC Ball Park's recreational basketball program...
In-person sign-up sessions for individuals and teams (Girls and Boys ages 4 to 14) for ABC's youth recreational basketball program (2021 season) will be held in the Field House at ABC on:

    Tuesday, October 27    -- 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm
    Thursday, November 5 -- 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

NOTE:  If you were on an ABC team last year and intend on playing for the same team again this year, you do not need to re-register.  Please contact your team manager or coach to make sure they know you are returning. 
We do all we can to place everyone on a team, but eventually teams do fill up (even newly created ones), so we cannot make an absolute guarantee of placement on a team.  
REGARDING COVID-19 --- Though the St. Louis County youth sports bans have been lifted, there remains in effect COVID-19 related rules and guidelines which will be adopted for our basketball program.  Please read the following for the latest information:
2021 Basketball Season update -- October 16, 2020

The creation of teams depends on having parents or other adults help to coach and operate the team.  Youth sports league teams can only exist with responsible parental/adult involvement.  If you are interested and want to know what is involved in coaching or running a team, just ASK!

What is the cost?
There is no initial up front cost to register as an individual player at ABC.  Players pay their share of the team fee when placed on a team.  The fee shown below is for an ENTIRE TEAM -- this amount is divided equally among all team players.
Team registration fees are:
     $450 - Training League teams (Pee Wee 1 and Pee Wee 2) – 10 game season
     $725 - Youth League (ages 8 through 14) – 10 game season
Once placed on a team, additional costs may be incurred for team expenses – such as for uniforms and/or team equipment, when needed.  While teams are encouraged to keep these expenses as low as possible, players and parents should be aware that these costs depend on the decisions made by the team as a whole and are shared among all players. 
Teams may attempt to offset these additional costs (and perhaps even the team fee) by obtaining sponsors, conducting fund raisers, etc.  These activities, when conducted, are the sole responsibility of each team.
Photo ID Card?
Photo ID's are required for all basketball players.  New players to ABC or those with expired ID's must come to one of the scheduled ID card sessions scheduled prior to the season.  Read more for currently scheduled dates… 
Bring the child (for a "photo” ID), proof of age (birth certificate or expired ID card), and $5.00.
ID cards are valid for 3 years and can be used for all ABC sport programs.  If you have a non-expired ID card from another sport, it can also be used for baseball.
