Hanover Youth Basketball League Summer 2023 registration will open in May 2023.  The season is tentatively scheduled from June 17 - July 30.

It's time to start working with your players on their Kyrie Killa cross-overs, Steph step-backs, Harden heat checks, Lebron layups, Jordan pull-up jumpers, Magic show-time passes, Dr. J. baseline scoops, Kareem skyhooks, Lisa Leslie's reverse pivot, and especially their Big Ben lockdown defense! 

Hanover Youth Basketball League is designed to introduce young (beginner) players to the sport while enhancing and fine-tuning the skills of more experienced players. Your child will learn the fundamentals of basketball with age-appropriate skills, drills, and game-play rules.  Our League is set up such as to help build confidence and ability as the season progresses. Your player will improve their understanding of the sport; shooting, dribbling, passing, defense, teamwork, and sportsmanship throughout the season.

  • Age-appropriate instruction emphasizes fun, skills improvement, and gameplay.
  • All skill levels are welcome – players are evaluated and drafted in an attempt to balance each team.
  • Everyone plays at least half of every game.
