Pistons Academy youth basketball leagues are designed to teach game strategy & team skills through competitive play. Players register as individuals and are placed on a team via the league draft. All skill levels are welcome, but players should have previous basketball experience. Each team has a minimum of 7 games and three practices. Practices will be held on Thursday evenings or Saturdays before the game. Most games will be played on Saturdays between 10am-6pm (there may be an occasional Friday evening game). All players receive a team jersey, and each season concludes with a playoff tournament. Coaches are qualified volunteers and/or Pistons Academy staff. All referees are trained and certified.
