Registration availability in all leagues is limited based on the number of staff/volunteers that are available and facility space. Registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis.
This 6-game league will feature one practice a week (day and time based on gym availability) and one game on Saturdays. All teams are guaranteed to have at least one hour of indoor practice space per week. The score is kept for 5th grade (no score in 4th grade to create a learning environment). General youth sports jerseys are mandatory and can be purchased at the CARD Office for $17.
All divisions are currently full! Participants can get on the waitlist and will be contacted if a spot opens up. The waitlist will close on 2/1. If you do not hear from us by February 1, you unfortunately did not get into the league for this season.

Team Formation: Teams will be loosely based on grade and where players attend school. Genders are separated for basketball. Grades will be combined if there are not enough players in a specific grade to run a league on its own (for example: 4th/5th may combine into one league if necessary) All team formation is at the discretion of CARD staff. CARD will contact participants if a skills evaluation is necessary (ie: if there are enough players registered from one specific school to allow us to form two teams). Note: Skills evaluations will not be necessary for all schools.
