Sign up now for youth basketball for Valdosta-Lowndes County Parks & Recreation

Registration is happening now for the Valdosta-Lowndes County Parks & Recreation Authority’s Youth Basketball League.  Space is limited, so registration will close when VLPRA hits 900 participants OR on October 16th, whichever comes first.

The league is open to all Kindergartners through 12th graders in Valdosta and Lowndes County.  Teams are divided by school, grade, and gender.  For instance, each school may have a boys team and a girls team for each grade.  Those teams will wear uniforms with their school name and in the appropriate theme: Wildcat, Viking, Valiant, etc.  Each city and county school are represented, as well as Scintilla Charter Academy, Valwood, Georgia Christian, and others.

Parents can sign their children up at or at VLPRA’s main office at 1901 North Barack Obama Boulevard in Valdosta.

The season runs December through March. Each basketball player’s jersey and shorts are included in the $85 registration fee, which also includes games, practices, and post-season.  Practices and games are at VLPRA gyms and select schools in the area.

VLPRA is also looking for volunteer coaches.  Every coach must pass a background check to receive a roster, so the VLPRA asks that potential coaches fill out a volunteer form as soon as possible at
