BNBL Now Registering for Summer Teams, Coaches


Boston’s favorite summer basketball league, the Boston Neighborhood
Basketball League (BNBL), is back! Presented by Reebok, BNBL is currently
accepting registrations for teams to compete in the 45th annual summer
season. Individuals who wish to join a “wait list” to be placed on a team
and youth interested in the Pee Wee Development Program can also register.
The registration deadline is Friday, June 27th. Volunteer coaches are also
welcome and needed. All BNBL coaches must pass a CORI/SORI administered
through Boston Centers for Youth & Families (BCYF.)

The BNBL season officially begins on Monday, July 7th. Registration forms
for team registration and individual “wait list” registration can be
downloaded on-line soon at http://www.cityofboston.gov/bcyf/recreation.asp.
The league will end on Friday, August 22nd after the conclusion of all
playoff games.

BNBL also offers a FREE Pee Wee Developmental program for boys and girls
ages 6-11. Pee Wee BNBL is offered at the BCYF Charlestown Community
Center, the BCYF Gallivan Community Center in Mattapan, the BCYF Grove Hall
Community Center in Roxbury, the BCYF Leahy-Holloran Community Center in
Dorchester, and the BCYF Roslindale Community Center. This program teaches
young players the basics of basketball in a fun and non-competitive
setting. Space is limited and spots can be reserved by calling the
community centers directly. Pee Wee registration forms can be downloaded
on-line soon at http://www.cityofboston.gov/bcyf/recreation.asp.

The Boston Neighborhood Basketball League is the oldest municipal
basketball league in the country and serves over 3,000 young men and women
in four divisions: Pee Wee, 13 and under, 15 and under, and 18 and under.
BNBL is played at BCYF community centers across the city and at select park
locations. For more information, or to find out about coaching
opportunities, please e-mail or call the League Co-Director, Woodley
