The East Ridge Parks and Recreation youth basketball program offers an opportunity for girls and boys to join team’s ranging in age from 5 to 14 years old. The community-based recreational basketball league is intended to provide a positive social experience for the young girls and boys who participate. The league places emphasis on good sportsmanship, fun and exercise.  Players are placed on teams based on age. Each team will have a practice time during the week before the season starts.  Volunteer coaches, who have a love for kids, are knowledgeable of the game and emphasize sportsmanship, are welcomed. All coaches are run through background checks.

For ages 5-6, the basketball program is designed to develop skills and promote fun while participating in organized games. Scores are not kept in this age group.

For ages 7-14, the basketball program is designed to develop skills on a more competitive level. 

East Ridge Parks and Recreation is a youth basketball program that is open to players 5 to 14 years of age. The age group cut-off date is January 1 of the current year. Participants may choose to play up an age division, but may not play down.

Teams are drafted in late November and practices begin December 1. The season starts with a jamboree in the middle of December and ends with a postseason tournament in late February. Teams play an approximate two month schedule with games at the East Ridge Community Center and recreation sites governed by the Catoosa County Recreation Department. Games are scheduled to be played on Saturday at various locations, with the possibility of games scheduled during the week. Each team should expect to have an equal number of home and away games.

With basketball registration, East Ridge Parks and Recreation offers a basketball jersey, matching shorts and insurance.

Cost of registration is $65 per child with discount rates for those who have multiple children signed up.

The City of East Ridge home games will have an admission fee of $4.00 ($2.00 for seniors)  age 13 and up. The proceeds from the admission fees will be used to pay the referees for the game.

Annual sign-ups will be held at the East Ridge Community Center, which is  located at  1517 Tombras Ave. East Ridge, TN. 37412
