Scottsdale’s Youth Sports programs are offered year round for 1st-5th grade youth. Participants play for a team representing their school. The program is offered at all Scottsdale Public Schools, and OLPH. Our basketball program is active between February and March.

Basic fundamentals, positive peer interaction and good sportsmanship are the foundation for the Youth Sports program.

The coach determines which two days per week the team will practice.
All practices will be held right after school, outside on the school grounds.
