BCRL Basketball forms teams for Kindergarten - Sixth grade. Teams older than this form on their own and sign up as a group. Second grade and above play in the Cincinnati Premier Youth Basketball League. Kindergarten and first grade play in our in-house instructional league.
In the 2016-2017 season BCRL served over 215 Batavia youth and had 26 teams. Practices are held at Batavia Elementary and Batavia Middle school. Home games for K-3rd grade are held at the elementary school. Home games for 4th grade and above are held at the middle school. K/1 do not play away games, the rest play local teams in the CPYBL.
New in 2017 will be moving to a standard Batavia uniform. Please read our new policy.
Also new in 2017 is a change in how we do concession stand and gym monitoring duty. For all teams, 2nd grade and above it is expected that your team work the gym 90 minutes before your game. If you are the first game of the day, you should show up 60 minutes early to help setup chairs and such (really not a big job if there is more than two people). Your team should have two people present 90 minutes before the game, one to handle concession and one to monitor the gym. The gym monitor will need to be able to escort unruly parents, clean up messes, and in general monitor things to make sure they are running smoothly. In discussing with the coaches last season this seemed to be a preferred method moving forward.
