Player Divisions

BDL is a co-ed basketball league. Players are grouped according to their ages and/or abilities. The league has four divisions: Rookies, Juniors, Seniors and Adults. The guidelines for each division are shown below. These are just general guidelines. Players can be moved up or down the divisions depending upon circumstances.

Division Ages
Rookies 8-12
Juniors 12-15
Seniors 15-18
Adult 18+

The Rookies are not assigned to permanent teams. Depending on the number of rookies and their abilities, they are divided into groups at the first practice. On game day, the players are divided into teams within their practice groups. This rotation method allows the Rookies a chance to play among different players.

The players in the Junior and Senior groups are assigned to a permanent team at the first practice. They stay on the same team throughout league. Players may get moved to other teams during the season in order to balance out the teams. After a series of league games, all the teams compete in a playoff tournament to determine the league champions.

The adult division is comprised of players ages 18+. Teams are assembled by a team captain, who submits a roster to the league. Just like the Junior and Senior divisions, all the teams compete in a playoff tournament to determine the league champions.
