Sterling Rec Basketball

This program is currently unavailable. Click here to view all of our current programs.

This is a recreational basketball league for players grades 1-8. We strive to create an environment that is inclusive of all players and allows for growth, sportsmanship and teamwork. Divisions are organized by grade and teams are determined by skill level. Divisions II-V must attend Play-Nights to demonstrate level of play and knowledge of the game -- there are NO cuts, this is merely to create the most equally talented teams as possible.

COACHES! We rely on volunteer coaches and assistant coaches to run this program. PLEASE VOLUNTEER!
