Welcome To The Home Of The
Kingwood Basketball League
Passing of Joseph (Joey) Karabin
Thursday evening the Kingwood Community lost a wonderful young man, Joseph (Joey) Karabin. Joey played in the Kingwood Basketball League from the time he was in Kindergarten thru 8th grade. He graduated from Kingwood Township School in 2011 where he played basketball for the Knights. He was currently a sophomore at Delaware Valley Regional High School where he was also a rising star of the basketball team. Please keep your thoughts and prayers with his family through this very difficult time.
THE KINGWOOD BASKETBALL LEAGUE
The KBL affords an opportunity to all residents of Kingwood Township and surronding areas, grades K-8, to play league basketball. The program will begin late November and ends in mid-March. Games are usually played on Friday evening and/or Saturdays. Practices will be held during the week in the evenings. The KBL intends that all applicants who apply, in time, will be allowed to play. If our registration numbers exceed the gym space that we have, the league reserves the right to take registrants on a first come - first served basis.

The Kingwood Basketball League has always prided it's self on keeping the registration fees among the lowest in the state while putting togeather a first class program. This year, beacuse of the tough ecomic times, we actually lowered our registration fees. To make up for this we need to step up our fundraiser efforts. We now have three main fundraisers we are hoping that your family can help our league by participating in at least one of them.
1. Our team sponsorship program. - We are looking for local business to help in sponsoring our teams each team is $200.00. For the $200.00 sponsorship fee each sponsor will recieve their name on the backs of the players shirts, a plaque to display in their business and an ad banner placed on our site. In the last two years our site recieved over 7,600 hits - from local people who patronize local businesses. Your ad can also be linked to your copmany web site or to your e-mail. Your banner will be viewed on the team page along with comming up randommaly on the common pages. Our sponsor ads average around 1,800 viewes each per year. You do not need to have a business to help out with this. When you visit a local business drop off a sponsorship form and just ask most business welcome sponsoring local teams especially when their customers ask.
