Silver Lake Youth Basketball

About Us

It is the clear intention of those involved with the day-to-day running of this very successful program to provide all players with a solid foundation of skills, confidence and love for the game of basketball and the joy of being part of a team.

Instructional and Recreational Program

The Recreation Program is open to every player registered regardless of skill level. This program is the foundation of the entire boy's and girl's program. Because players develop physically, socially, and emotionally at different rates, a child has the opportunity to play and develop skills and confidence against other player with like competencies. Teams are put together by league officials with the intent of developing equal competition through all levels. This program begins the first week of December and concludes in March.

Travel Program

Players are selected for these teams after tryouts in October. This is a more competitive program designed for those players interested in a higher level of competition. The program runs from November-March including playoffs. Teams practice weekly with games on Saturday/Sunday throughout the South Shore. There is an additional fee for participating in this program. It is important to know that only twelve players per team are selected for this level. With many kids trying out it is a very difficult task selecting only twelve. The coaches do the best job they can. Bear in mind, everyone involved is a volunteer.
