Registration Fee

Cost for the league is $40 per participant. 


  • All players make a team; this allows us to evenly distribute players to teams as best as possible.
  • League age is based on the age of the child on March 1 of the current season (e.g. if they are 12 on January 1 they play in the 11&12 division).
  • Players moving up an age group must go through the evaluations.
  • All new players must go through the evaluations. If a child is unable to attend the evaluations, they will still be placed on a team.
  • Players on high school basketball teams (freshman, junior varsity, or varsity) are not eligible to participate in this program

Parent Reminder

  • Please remember that the St. Johns County Parks & Recreation Department runs the Youth Basketball League as a recreational league for the children.
  • We want all teams and players to feel that they are playing in a safe environment and that their experience is a positive one.
  • Also remember that our referees are doing their best and we are trying to reinforce good sportsmanship within our league.
  • Please notify the League Director of any problem that you may have, and it will be handled accordingly.
