The Malakoff Girls Basketball League combines team playing, volunteer coaching, mentorship opportunities and strong community and parental support for girls 9 – 15 years of age. The Juniors League is for ages 9 to 11 and the Seniors League is for ages 12 to 15.
The League emphasizes fun, teamwork and a chance for everyone to play. Winning is not the most important objective.
The goals of the program are to give girls a chance to have fun while enhancing self-esteem, teaching one to win and lose gracefully, working well with others and instilling the discipline to faithfully attend practices as well as games. No former basketball experience is necessary as our volunteer coaches, who have a love for basketball, are hands-on in teaching the fundamentals of the sport. All participants receive a team trophy at the end of the season. Participants also benefit from clinics run by the Columbia University Women’s Basketball Team.
Practices are held Friday nights and games are on Saturday at Village Community School, 272-278 West 10th Street. The Commissioner for the 2019/2020 season is Shannon Carr.
Registration For the 2019/2020 Season is Now Closed.
