This Summer Saturday League is where children join individually, taught the fundamentals of the game, get evaluated, then placed on evenly competitive teams to ensure each team has an equal opportunity to win the championship game at the end of the summer.

Additionally, participants who have excelled over the school year receive academic achieve awards for their hard work and dedication in the classroom over the school year. We also teach our kids to be proactive concerning their health, the health of family members and the community.

Each child receives at least one 3 ft tall trophy & a uniform. Championship trophies are much larger in each division depending on their age.
There are 4 divisions in the Spring/Summer League comprised of 4 to 6 teams each with 10 players per team.
The Divisions are as follows:
  • 12 & Under

Pre-assembled teams are NOT allowed in the NYCBBC summer League except for the All Girls Division.
Kids must come prepared to play in scrimmage games on all registration dates to be evaluated for the league-draft on the last registration day to be placed on a team. The draft is intended to insure that all the teams are balanced to aid in each team having the same chance at winning the championship in their respective divisions.
Some of the official games will be scheduled on Sundays; however, Sunday’s will most likely be for rained out games, all-star games and the coaches, parents & Staff game.
Every child must be present on the last registration day to be placed on a team.

Each participant MUST play in at least two (2) Scrimmage games to be placed on a team on Team Draft Day.
