Revised Basketball League Schedule

Due to unforeseen facility maintenance at one of the gyms at Auten Road, we had to revise some locations for the upcoming weeks schedule. 

Games in the Auten Road New Gym will be held as previously scheduled.  Games previously scheduled for the Old Gym have been moved to Hillsborough Middle School and moved 30 minutes earlier.  These changes are in effect for both youth on Saturdays and high school league games on Mondays.

Please check your team's updated schedule for the season on the Basketball section of our website.
