The Cardinal Shehan Center runs several basketball leagues.
For the younger players, grades K-6, we have a Beginner Basketball clinic that runs on Saturday mornings called "Bitty Basketball". We also have three leagues for older kids. For 5th and 6th graders, there are Girls and Boys Junior Varsity leagues. For 7th and 8th graders, Boys Varsity leagues are available. The Center also runs a boys high school league during both the summer and the fall for school teams and a grammar school softball league for parochial schools. The Fall Bitty Ball Clinic leads into the Winter Bitty Ball League. These leagues run at different points during the year, please call (203) 336-4468 for more information.
Individual children can sign up for the Beginner Basketball league but teams are required for the other leagues. The Center has a team in the boys and girls JV and varsity basketball leagues for members of our After School & Saturday Program.
