2018-2019 Dillon Youth Basketball more info

The Dillon Youth Basketball League is entering its 48th season. The program is a partnership between the Princeton Recreation Department and Princeton University. All of the volunteer coaches are made up of Princeton University students and PRD staff.  The level of coaching/basketball experience of these volunteers varies widely, however, there is a very limited practice/teaching element to this program. The Recreation Department will have adult supervisors on site at all scheduled games and team shoot-arounds/practices.  In the event a University coach can not attend a game, a PRD staff member will serve as a fill-in coach.  Please understand due to the facility schedule we receive from the University, we often play our games over academic breaks and there will be several games the coaches may not be on campus for.  In that event, a PRD staff member will coach.  The Dillon League is recreational in nature. All players will play in every game regardless of their skill level or whether they have attended the informal practice sessions. The Dillon League is about playing the game and having fun while doing it. While the skill levels may vary within each team, coaches are mandated to play everyone.

Individuals that play for their High School Varsity or JV team may not compete in the Dillon League.  We encourage you to register your child in advance for the Dillon League in order to reserve your spot. In the event that you register for the Dillon Youth Basketball Program and your child makes their high school JV or Varsity team, a full refund will be provided in this instance. 

Only Princeton residents and nonresidents that attend a school located within the geographical boundaries of Princeton may register for the program. Nonresidents may be accepted later if there are still available spots. Residency is based on where you pay property tax. Mailing address does not equal residency. 

Public Schools in Princeton: All Princeton Regional Schools & Princeton Charter School
Private Schools in Princeton: American Boy Choir School, Hun, The Lewis School, PDS, Princeton Academy, Princeton Friends School, St. Paul, Stuart & Wilberforce School
Registration fee: $88/Princeton Residents & $173/Non-Residents that attend school in Princeton. 
Space in the program is limited and you are not guaranteed a spot. Teams fill up on a first-come, first-serve basis or via the registration deadline, whichever comes first.  Once the division limit has been reached, a waiting-list will be started for all other players.   We are not able to honor teammate requests. We will do our best to put siblings of the same gender on the same team if they play in the same division.
 (Depending on registration numbers, staff reserves the right to combine divisions based on enrollment.) 

We respectfully request that parents not enter the gym during practices. Despite the best intentions of parents, having anyone besides coaches & players in the gym has proven to be a distraction. We have adult staff supervising the practices at all times. Thank you in advance for respecting this request.
