South County Youth Athletics

Boys Basketball Spring 2023

Welcome

Boys County Basketball Spring 2023

South County Youth Athletics is dedicated to bringing basketball to the kids of South County. Our youth teams feed into our high school programs as appropriate. In some cases, kids and parents decide to continue in recreational sports activities outside of the high school. Our teams compete in the Anne Arundel County Recreation League. We guarantee to teach basketball with the emphasis on fun, positive sportsmanship, hard work, dedication and discipline.

Our county level teams are for boy’s ages 8 through 14.  Your age before September 1, 2022 determines your age level. Age groups are: 8U (3rd grade), 9U (4th grade), 10U (5th grade), 11U (6th grade), 12U (7th grade), 13U (8th grade), and 14U (9th grade). Example: If your child is in 4th grade and turned 10 before September 1, 2022, they must play up in the 10U (5th grade) group. Age is what the county goes by not grade. Requests to play up an age group level must be made during registration or by email prior to team formation. If registering for 8U, your child must turn 8 years of age before the first scheduled county game is played, usually the first or second Saturday of December. 

The county has 3 different levels of play A, B, & C. The assigned levels allow for all participants to participate and play at or near their skill level, whether it is at higher competitive level, or at a level where individuals can continue to learn. There are times in the spring that teams may be combined with different age groups to form one team. Practices are twice per week and will be held at Southern Middle School, Tracey’s Elementary, Lothian Elementary, Shady Side Elementary or South County Rec Center. Games are generally on Sundays for all teams 8U - 14U. The county selects the gym teams will play in, and this can be anywhere throughout Anne Arundel county. Teams may play in the same gym every week, but in some cases may have to travel to other locations based on gym availability.
