Each session will include a skill development time and game against another Spirit League team within the same age division. Fundamentals will be taught based on the Spirit League curriculum developed to meet the unique needs of our athletes.

Adult Basketball (Ages 18-30)

Online registration for our Adult Basketball Season (ages 18-30) will be from February 1 to 28. Games will be played on Saturdays from April 22 to June 24 (10 weeks) on the outdoor courts at Newhart Middle School in Mission Viejo from 9:00 – 10:30 am. DOWNLOAD BASKETBALL FLYER

Our adult programming is different than our youth programming. Instead of being assigned a specific team, we work with a pick-up game style where athletes have the opportunity to play with different teammates each week. This approach has led to our athletes making new friends while also strengthening basketball fundamentals.

Registration Fee

The registration fee includes a personalized team jersey, team and individual photos, medal, use of court equipment, specialized instruction, insurance and facility rental. Parents should provide black athletic shorts, tall black athletic socks and tennis shoes. Last year, we reached capacity early and had a long waiting list. Please consider registering early. Registration fee: $245 per athlete.

HOW TO REGISTER

Important Notes

Click the “Register Now” button to access our registration site where you can set up your parent profile (new parents) or login to your current account (returning parents). Once you are logged into your parent account, you can set up new athletes or modify your current athletes.

Once your athlete’s profiles are added or updated, select “Register Now” to enroll an athlete for a specific season. Your athlete is not registered for the season until you have completed the Register Now process and payment. Upon successful payment, you will receive an online confirmation and a copy will be emailed to the email address listed in your parent profile.

Once registration closes, Spirit League Staff will form teams, divisions, order uniforms and set game times. We will notify parents approximately 2 weeks prior to the start of the season of their athlete’s team assignment, time of play, and calendar for the season.

Late Registration

After the registration period, registrants will be subject to a late fee and may be placed on a waitlist. Registrants will be placed on teams on a first-come-first-served basis, and as such we cannot guarantee that we will be able to place all late registrants on teams (refer to Refund Policy in FAQs).
