Youth Basketball

The J is excited to provide a new registration system in 2020. If this is your first time using our new system, please visit our help page for more information about setting up your new online account.

Register OnlineOnline Waiver

To participate in a J basketball program, your child must have a signed waiver. If you register online, the online waiver was included. However, if you register by phone, by mail, or in person, we will need this online waiver signed & completed prior to the first day of the program.  Please find the waiver above.

Basketball Brochure

We’re so glad we are able to offer Youth Basketball. Here are some of the ways we’re doing it safely:
• Only one or two games will take place at a time (instead of three)
• Staggered start times
• Games spaced out in 75-minute blocks (instead of 60)
• Separate entry and exit doors
• Wellness check when entering building
• A limit of one spectator per player at games
• Masks must be worn at all times by spectators, coaches and refs
• Players must wear masks when on the bench and are encouraged to do so during the games
