Depending on grade level, there may be options for McFarland youth athletes who want to play basketball:
MGBB Fall/Winter League (3rd-8th)
MRAP Basketball (3rd-4th)
IMMS School Ball (7th-8th)
Here are some details on what you can expect if your child plays basketball with MGBB:
Open to any 3rd-8th grader who is either a resident of McFarland or student of McFarland School District.
We participate and compete in the Badger Development League (BDL) which is a great opportunity to learn the game of basketball, have fun and play against other teams throughout Dane County. We focus on teaching fundamentals, developing healthy attitudes/good sportsmanship and establishing the connection between teamwork and roles and how they relate to team success. Our coaches all have experience playing basketball at the high school or collegiate level, as well as prior coaching experience.
The cost to register your player is $250 ($200 for 3rd Grade) for the season. This fee includes a $100 volunteer deposit which will be returned for meeting the fundraising requirement (selling five $20 raffle tickets). More information on that will follow this fall. Your registration fee also includes a shooting shirt and McFarland Girls Youth Basketball t-shirt. Cost should not prohibit anyone from participating. If you would like information on scholarships, reach out to email@example.com.
We begin practices in mid-late October and go through February/early March. Practice dates/times have not been determined yet, but usually take place 1-2 nights a week. Due to the high demand for gym time, practices may not be on the same day/time each week. More information will be provided on/around October 10.
The Badger Development League (BDL) generally includes 5 dates of games (Saturday or Sunday), plus a 6th final tournament day. Additional tournaments outside of BDL play may be added depending on player/family and coach interest and may require additional cost.
We will be using the same uniforms as the 2022/23 season, so if you are returning and your child’s uniform still fits, you do not need to order anything new. If you need a new uniform or your old one no longer fits, those will be available for purchase after registration closes (late September). Uniforms typically run about $80 and generally can last two seasons.
Registration is open August 15-September 15. Due to league deadlines, we may not be able to accept any additional registrations after September 15.
