Welcome to the McFarland Girls Basketball Boosters Website


The McFarland Girls Basketball Boosters (MGBB) believe that the best way to provide a positive experience for our McFarland youth, is to focus on creating a positive environment full of opportunities for players of all skill levels. Teaching great fundamentals, developing a competitive attitude, and establishing the connection between teamwork and roles and how they relate to team success. These three core principles are the driving force for us as we continue to find a variety of ways to get the girls in the gym and playing this wonderful game of basketball with each other.  


McFarland residents and students enrolled in the McFarland School District can participate in our McFarland youth programs which include Fall Basketball,  Little Spartan Dribblers and Sharp Shooters program (or any additional programming). 


Fall/Winter 2023-2024 Basketball

MGBB 2023/2024 Season:

  • Registration opens in August.
  • Games typically run from November through mid-February with the BDL
    • This season it may be needed to extend through March based on availability of schools to host
  • Practices start as early as October and extend into February or March
  • Additional tournaments may be added to round out a season based on participation numbers
  • Post season play will be an additional cost if coaches and families have interest in extending their season


When do we practice?

  • Basketball scheduling works different than other sports. Other sporting activities can tell you what night, time and location you practice at every week before you sign up. For us, we rely on utilizing our schools and don't have access to scheduling until AFTER we need to secure our registration numbers. We need to coordinate scheduling with High School, Middle School, Elementary School, MRAP and McFarland Boys Basketball too. Scheduling is a complex puzzle where you need to find space where you can. 

My kids in other winter activities, can they still play with MGBB in the BDL?

  • Participants (and teams) have the best experience when basketball is a players number one priority in the winter. Teammates that miss practices for other activities have a tougher time learning team concepts and don't have as much time to develop their skills. They may struggle in game situations when they are as familiar with the team concepts they miss in practice.
