Online Only Registration for Fall & Winter Basketball

Information for All Basketball Divisions

Each player must wear the league uniform which is a blue and white reversible jersey. Any player who does not have a blue and white reversible jersey or who needs to replace theirs will need to purchase one for an additional fee; jerseys can be purchased at the Fort Hill Activity Center. School sites, which will be used for practices, are to be determined by the Park District. Because not every school is available for practices, some teams may practice at a neighboring school rather than the school attended by team members. A weekly practice will be scheduled for each team but is not always guaranteed and is dependent on facility availability.

When: There are two seasons for NYB - Fall (October-December) and Winter (January-March)

Where: Fort Hill Parking Lot Map

Games are played on Saturdays for Kindergarten - 4th grade between 7:30 a.m.-7:00 p.m. and Sundays for 5th – 8th grade  from 9 a.m.-7:30 p.m. at the Fort Hill Activity Center.  Should  the number of team exceed Fort Hill Capacity, some game may be moved to  School locations (TBD) and game start and end times may be adjusted to meet the demands of the program.   Practices are held at assigned school locations throughout Naperville.

Good Call: Referees Keep the Ball Bouncing in Naperville Youth Basketball

If you visit Fort Hill Activity Center on a Saturday during the winter months, you’ll see the first floor gymnasiums and lobby bustling with activity. Children in basketball team uniforms and their parents, grandparents and siblings are streaming in and out of the building at the start and finish of each game.  Coaches confer with their assistants and gather their teams, the scoreboards light up and the buzzers sound.
