Basketball League Registration!

Get excited because basketball season is right around the corner!

James L. McKeown Boys & Girls Club of Woburn offers fun, intramural, instructional basketball leagues for youth in grades 2-8 each winter.  The cost to participate is $25 and all participants must be Club members. Each team practices for one hour each week and plays one game each week. The season takes place from late November/early December through February vacation.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: We are seeking volunteer coaches. If you are interested and/or able to volunteer to coach a basketball team this winter, please contact Dave Maestri, Health & Recreation Director. The number of coaches who volunteer determines the number of players we can accept into the league. Without enough volunteers, many youth will not be able to participate.
