Please note that the team on the right side of the schedule is considered the home team.  If there are two teams in the same district with the same uniform (like Valdosta Black/Valdosta Gold and Pine Grove Maroon/Pine Grove Silver), then the home team will wear their regular game jerseys when they play each other.  We will hand out specific away team jerseys to the away team for those games that will be turned back in at the game's conclusion.

Any questions?  Contact Mike Jenkins at kjenkins@vlpra.com or 229-333-1853.

Please remember to sign up for text alerts.  They are the fastest way to find out if we are cancelling games or events based on bad weather or other emergencies.  We will only send alerts if it affects a large number of people.  For instance, we will send alerts when games are cancelled or when practices for an entire league or an entire park are cancelled. We will not send text alerts for individual team announcements or cancellations.  If a coach cancels practice, it is up to him or her to alert his/her players. We have alerts for all of our sports and they are (mostly) broken down by season. You will have to register for alerts at the beginning of each season. This keeps participants from getting unwanted texts.

We do not charge for text alerts and they are optional, but recommended. (Standard text messaging rates do apply, so please check with your carrier to make sure you will not receive charges from your cell phone provider).

HOW TO REGISTER FOR ALERTS:
Go to www.rainedout.com ---> search VLPRA ----> click on the blue VLPRA under "preferred results"----> register for alerts!

It's at Grassy Pond on Saturday, September 24th and is open to everyone: military AND civilians!

Register now for VLPRA's school-based youth basketball league!  It's open to K through 12th graders in Valdosta and Lowndes County.  

Teams are split by grade, gender, and school.  We anticipate each grade at each public school to have a boys team and a girls team.  Also open to private schools and Scintilla students!  And introducing: basketball cheerleading!  By popular demand, we will be offering cheerleading as well.

This is a recreational league where EVERYONE plays.  Practices and games will be held at local schools and at VLPRA gyms.  The one-time registration fee is $75.00 and includes uniforms, practices/games, awards, and equipment.  We are happy to announce that we have an Athletic All Star team as well as Academic All Stars to reward outstanding behavior both on and off the court.  Cheerleading is just $50 and also includes uniforms.

Registration closes OCTOBER 21st at 5PM AT OUR MAIN OFFICE AND OCTOBER 23rd AT MIDNIGHT ONLINE.  The season runs December through early March including a tournament.  ***Our middle school games will not begin until February, immediately following the school system's basketball season.  

Games will be at area schools as well as at our gyms.  Games vary in days and times: there will be games on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings as well as Saturdays mornings but your team will play a max of two games per week.  Practice days and times are up to the individual coaches.  Typically once the season starts, teams only practice once per week. 

VLPRA reserves the right to combine schools and or grades as necessary.
