4th-7th Grade Boys & Girls



For those of you that have played in GABL in the past, things will look very different for you this winter.  GABL has been offering youth basketball opportunities for over 46 years in Kansas City and the 2020-21 winter season will be no different.  We believe in the value of youth sports and the positive affect it has on our community.  As many already know, the school districts that GABL usually operates all of their games and practices are not available for use this winter.  GABL has made arrangements with private facilities for this season and will be able to accommodate around 350 teams.  We usually operate our winter season with nearly 500 teams so our capacity is limited.  Don't wait to sign up at the last minute!     


Each team must come in with a minimum of 9 players per team
.

  • Already formed teams are welcomed.  When registering list the coaches name.  Coaches are asked to submit a roster in their coaches volunteer application.  Individuals that register with no team will be placed if possible.  No Guarantees    
  • Teams play 12 games minimum
  • Teams will receive 13-14 practice times minimum
  • Games are played at City Center Fitness (17450 W 87th St Lenexa, KS 66219), Lenexa Community Center, Hy-Vee Arena and other facilities in Olathe, KS (BIG Announcement Coming Soon!).  Hy-Vee Arena will be used for many 4-7th grade games.  When scheduled to play at Hy-Vee Arena GABL will do everything possible to have multiple games played in one day to limit trips downtown.  The facility is amazing, and offers multiple restaurants, ample seating for distancing purposes PLUS every Chiefs game (as well as other NFL games) will be played live so not to miss out!  Practices will not be scheduled at Hy-Vee arena, only Saturday and Sunday games.      
  • Practices times and dates will be allocated once a team is fully registered.  Getting your team registered early will help ensure a favorable practice date and time.  
  • Traditionally GABL has conducted a "preseason" to establish divisions.  For the 2020-21 season we will be relying on the coach to register their team as Advanced, Developing, and Beginner.  GABL will use this info to create divisions for the winter season.
  • Uniforms are not provided for 4-7th Grade.

Covid-19 Guidelines

For the Winter season we will be implementing Covid guidelines that all participants and spectators must follow. As of now, we are referring to our Fall league guidelines and will announce the Winter 'Return to Play' once the season begins. 

Visit our Fall league pages to view these guidelines.

Late Registration Process

Are you already on a coaches/team roster (have a team)


Register through our wait list and you will be notified when you have been activated and will be placed on your team roster.  An email will be automatically generated to let you know that you have been placed on the team and can now pay your registration fee.  After you register on the waitlist, it could take up to 48 hours for us to update rosters.  


Don’t have a team, but would like to play this winter


Register through our wait list and you will be notified as soon as we find a team that fits with your athlete.  All participants who registered before the deadline will be placed on teams before we start placing children from the waitlist.  If your child is placed, you will be notified via email that you can now complete your registration payment to officially be listed on a roster.  If for some reason we cannot find your child a team, we will notify you via email by October 30.  We do our best to place everyone on a team but cannot guarantee it.
