As Workman said, any teen who wants to can play in the league. There are no tryouts like there are for school basketball. Anyone who signs up and pays the entry fee is placed on a team.
Before registration, players can attend open gym if they want to get in some practice first. Then, at registration, each player is given a number, and coaches assemble their teams.
There are eight teams in the league this year, all named after NBA teams. They are the Hawks, Knicks, Grizzlies, Magic, Heat, Celtics, Lakers and Spurs.
There are an average of 12 players per team, which means there are slightly less than 100 teens in the league. This is a significant increase from last year.
Washington District Senior League is a great way for community members to come out and support their youth. The teens involved love it and look forward to it every year.
If you live in the area, why not come out for some fun and basketball? You just might love it, too.
