The department does not provide any equipment for the program. Parents are required to provide a basketball and non-marking soled shoes for each child. Both league’s success depends on parents as volunteer coaches. Both residents and non-residents of the city are welcome to participate in the league. Do not put it off; the registration deadline is Saturday, September 19 for the girls’ league and Saturday, October 31 for the boys’ league, so register now! A $5 late fee will be applied to any registrations accepted after the deadline.
Please note for the new 7th/8th grade division, that players cannot participate in the JPRD league if they are already in an organized school league.
JPRD is excited to include an online registration option at no additional charge, with the use of a debit or credit card, specifically for the winter basketball programs at https://signupville.com/Jerseyville/Default.aspx. Parents can still register in person with cash or check and by mail with check.
