Thank You for your interest in the Spearfish Junior Basketball League. The League provides organized basketball for girls and boys in grades 1st through 6th for the 2018-2019 school year.
Registration is currently open for the boys season, but closes on Sunday, October 27th. Girls Registration is CLOSED as of Sunday, September 2nd.
Please remember to sign up before the deadline. It becomes challenging to add players when the board has finalized the number of coaches & teams at the time of the deadline. If you contact the league after registraton has closed, we will add your son/daughter to a waiting list and add them when possible. Our focus is to keep the teams at a certain number so we can guarantee equal playing time for all participants.
Spearfish Junior League is for 1st-6th graders and includes a basketball clinic, weekly practices, and 6 weeks of league games. We have three age divisions; 1st&2nd, 3rd&4th, 5th&6th. We focus on teaching good sportsmanship along with developing the fundamentals it takes to become a better basketball player.

FREE GIRLS BASKETBALL CLINIC Saturday, Sept 8th.
Attention parents of Girls Junior League Basketball players! We will be hosting a free basketball clinic on Saturday, September 8th at the High School gym. The clinic is for girls in 1st through 6th grade.
Spearfish high school girls basketball coach Eric Lappe and his staff will be leading the clinic teaching basic basketball skills including passing, dribbling and shooting. This is a great opportunity for our young players to learn drills that can be used both during practice and at home. Please enter the maroon doors on the west side of the gym. There will be three groups, based on grade.
1st/2nd - 8:30 – 9:45
3rd/4th – 10:00 – 11:15
5th/6th – 11:30 – 12:45
Again, there is no cost for the clinic and players and coaches are encouraged to attend but it is not mandatory. Please bring a basketball as we have a limited supply.
All players must have a Spearfish Junior League Basketball jersey for the rec league games which start on Saturday, September 15th. These will be on sale during the clinic. The cost is $20.00.
In order to attend the clinic, all participants must be registered in the system for the 2018 season due to insurance purposes.
For questions regarding the clinic, please contact any member of the SJLBB board.
