BASKETBALL

WELCOME TO SPIRIT LEAGUE BASKETBALL

Basketball is Spirit League’s most popular sport.

2021 Season

(Note: Registration for the 2021 Season is now closed.)

We are excited to announce our Spring Basketball Clinic Series to be played in Laguna Niguel for both our Youth and Adult Programs. The 1-hour Clinics will be held each Saturday from April 24 to June 12 (8-weeks) and focus on individual skill development (including ball handling, passing and shooting), teamwork and building confidence on the courts.

Pods: Athletes will be grouped into pods according to age with 8 to 12 athletes per pod. Athletes will remain in the same pod for the duration of the Series to promote both safety and friendships amongst athletes. Pods will be led by Spirit League staff with support from volunteers at the skill stations. With the Clinic format, games between two teams will not be played.

Equipment: Equipment will be provided by Spirit League and be disinfected between each pod. The weekly curriculum includes minimized sharing of equipment between athletes.

Times: The registration fee includes attendance at all eight sessions. See 2021 Schedule below.

1:1 Assistance: If your athlete will need 1:1 assistance to participate, a parent/guardian will be permitted to provide on-court assistance. Non-family members (i.e., ABA Therapist) will be permitted if it is the same person for the duration of the Series.

COVID-19 Safety: Spirit League has prepared Return to Play Guidelines in response to State and local regulations related to COVID-19. Amongst other things, these Guidelines address distancing by athletes and spectators, shared equipment, limiting exposure and restricting the number of spectators per athlete to members the same household.  Per State guidelines, staff, volunteers, spectators and athletes (when tolerated) should wear face coverings. The Return to Play Guidelines are available for review here and in the Terms and Conditions section of our registration system.
