Canton Recreation Basketball League
Teams are filling fast! Don't wait, sign up today!

Canton's Recreation Basketball League is for boys and girls grades K-8 who are interested in learning the sport of basketball and competing with a team. Players will be grouped into teams within grade-appropriate brackets after an assessment night and coach selection with the goal of creating balanced and competitive teams. Teams will practice one night per week: Grades K-3 will have one practice at Cherry Brook Primary School (Mon, Wed or Fri) and Grades 4-8 (Wed or Thurs) will have one practice in the CIS gym. The exact time will be determined by the coach and court availability. Teams will have one game per week always on Saturday.


Canton Parks & Recreation is continuing its partnership with Avon, Burlington, and Farmington to expand the size, competition, network and length of our leagues, grades 2-8. This will ensure a variety of competitors and provide an early foundation for travel, AAU, and high school athletics. Games will be held in Canton, Avon, and Farmington on Saturdays and there will be approximately nine-ten games over the course of the season. Please note that some minimal travel within the Farmington Valley is required. This program now runs November-March and fees include a uniform t-shirt.

This league is geared towards developing players' individual skills while playing in a team setting.
