basketball

Northcott Neighborhood House has had a sports program since its founding in 1961. As we have developed over the years, we have been fortunate to add a regulation gymnasium. We have also developed our capacity to offer a diversity of sports to both boys and girls.

Basketball has remained a major activity with neighborhood youth participating in both formal and informal games. Informal activities are offered during free gym which takes place at varying times during the year. Currently, free gym is offered on Tuesday and Thursday from 4 P.M. until 9 P.M. Younger youth from 7-12 years of age utilize the gym until 7 P.M.. The evenings are for older youth aged 13-18.

We operate several Basketball leagues including the Challenge Basketball League which runs from mid-November until April. These are for youth aged 11-16. Practice is year round and requires pre-registration.

We participate in the Boys and Girls Clubs Future Heroes Football League for youth ages 12-14 that starts to meet in August each year. We also participate in a league for older youth ages 15-17 that begins in August. Interested youth should contact Bob Johnson at Northcott Neighborhood House during the summer.

Other sports that take place during the year include: volleyball, soccer, and open table games. We urge youth to drop by to check out the different opportunities during our after-school program that operates daily from 4 P.M. to 9 P.M. year-round. All programs require registration at the time of admittance. No fees are required.
