JERSEYVILLE - Jerseyville Parks and Recreation Department (JPRD) is still accepting registrations for the Boys Basketball League. The league is open to boys currently enrolled in 1st through 8th grade. The league will run January and February. Teams will be divided as follows: 1st/2nd, 3rd/4th, 5th/6th and 7th/8th.
