All players must be age 7 before the final day of registration, and cannot turn age 16 before Oct. 15, 2012. Registration will continue through Nov. 30.

Youth basketball leagues will include: Mighty Mites (co-ed), ages 4-6; Bantam Boys, ages 7-8; Bantam Girls, ages 7-9; Midget Boys, ages 9-10; Midget Girls, ages 10-12; Little Boys, ages 11-12; Junior Boys, ages 13-16; and Junior Girls, ages 13-16. Registration for returning players and city residents will continue through Oct. 26. Non-residents, and late city registrants, may sign up from Oct. 29 through Nov. 16. Players must be at least four years old before the last day of registration, and cannot turn age 16 before October 15 of the current year to be eligible for participation.

All new participants must have a birth certificate on file and visit the Newton Recreation Center for a registration packet. There is a $30 non-resident fee (non-refundable) for each player who is not a Newton resident. Registration is limited in each league; therefore, once a league is full, registrants will be placed on a waiting list.
