Recreational Program

SLYB Recreational basketball is offered to boys and girls in grades 1st through 8th.  The goal of recreational basketball is to develop skills in a less competitive environment than travel.  All on-time registrants will be guaranteed a spot on a team and teams will have an “equal playing” time rule.  All games and practices are played in Kingston.  Registration starts in September and the season runs from December to March.
