The South Boston Recreation Department is planning to have a youth basketball league this year with a reduced number of games.

There will be leagues for ages 5-18 with a Feb. 1 start date.

There will be one week of practice and games will begin the following week. COVID-19 restrictions will be followed and the league will follow all guidelines that are in place.

There will be no tryouts this year, with all new players being placed on teams.

If it is deemed unsafe to start the league on Feb. 1, the season will be canceled until October. For more information, call 575-4230.
