Elk River Summer Basketball (ERSBL)

Elk River Summer Basketball League Registration Ends May 29th so RegisterToday!

In June & July, there will be a Summer Basketball League for  Boys entering Grades 4-8th & Girls Entering Grades 6-8th.

This officiated Summer League is an affordable, great way for kids to gain game time experiences & work on their basketball IQ, while still experiencing a fun social event where they see and play against their friends.

ERSBL is played in the afternoons which allows for the kids to attend Strength & Speed, but yet does not interfere with evening sports or weekend plans.

Go to for Details on League Set-up, the 2018 Schedule and for the Registration Form.

Other Camps and Opportunities

Midwest 3 on 3

Midwest 3 on 3 is a league for the players. Kids need to enjoy the sport to want to improve. The league's key focus is FUN! This is an opportunity to develop basketball skills in a fun, low-stress environment. They encourage healthy competition in which kids play hard and play to win but not at the expense of belittling opponents, yelling at officials or displaying poor sportsmanship.

The leagues take place in many locations throughout the year, with opportunities in the Elk River area generally in the spring.
