SLP Girls Rec League

Girls Rec Program

Spring Lake Park partners with Blaine, Coon Rapids, Anoka, Fridley, Columbia Heights and Da Vinci to offer a Rec/In-house League.  Each community coordinates its own registration, teams, uniforms and practices, but we manage games and end-of-season tournaments as a combined North Metro Youth Basketball League.  This partnership ensures we have enough teams to support a competitive and fun rec league program.

In Spring Lake Park, our rec program is for girls in grades 2-8. 

2nd Grade teams are 4 v 4 to allow players more touches on the ball with 3rd grade and above following a traditional 5 v 5 format. 

Rec League Fees

Registration Fee: 2-3 grades fee is $155 and 4-8 grade fee is $170.00 per player (includes jersey, paid referees, & gym rental).

Program Dates

Girls Rec League runs October - December.  The registration deadline for girls is September 21, 2017.

Late registrations cannot be guaranteed a spot on a team.  All registrations must be completed online (even if paying offline).
