The season is underway in Lehigh Acres at the Lee County Parks & Recreation, Veteran’s Park, gymnasium with practice on Tuesdays and games on Wednesdays. Each Wednesday four teams gather every hour to compete starting with the youngest at 6p. The next hour features the next four teams. The night finishes with the last four teams bringing the total to 144 players. The teams are coached by dedicated volunteers who make each week a challenging, exciting and worthwhile experience!
This year began a new initiative at the North Fort Myers Recreation Center. A total of 30 youth are being put through the paces to develop and improve their basketball skills with a SYAL basketball clinic. The twelve-week program of exercise, drills and fundamentals are taught on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6 to 7 in the evening.
