New Website Coming Soon!

Arapahoe Youth League is upgrading our website!

Arapahoe Youth Leagues is upgrading our website to a new system called SportsEngine!  The new system will have all the features of our current system as well as new and useful features for parents, players, teams and coaches including better mobile support and team communications including chat and text!

Sport pages are actively being transitioned to the new site individually.  We anticipate having all pages transitioned by November/December for winter & spring sport registrations.  This will allow us to complete the Football and Softball seasons prior to transitioning those pages.  We are proceeding very cautiously to ensure the safety of your data and simplify transition for you. 

Check back soon for updates!

The Arapahoe Youth League (AYL) offers the premier youth competitive basketball league in the South metro Denver area. The AYL is organized by Member Clubs that manage different territories in the areas that we support.  

League play runs from November through February, for boys and girls teams from 2nd through 8th grade. Games can be played on Fridays through Sunday with Saturdays being the goal that all games are played on regardless of age. 

The 2022-2023 season will begin the weekend of November 11th and will run up to Championship day on February 11th. For additional dates please see "Basketball Season" under "Basketball Home" tab in upper left hand corner.   


Please visit your Member Club website for more information and registration: 

Littleton Thunder (Littleton/Centennial Area)  Cherry Creek
   Hawks (Parker Area)
 Raptors (Castle Rock Area)  South Jeffco (Littleton/Lakewood Area)
 Spartans (Aurora Area)  Warriors (Highlands Ranch Area)


Levels of Play:


All teams will be reviewed by the Basketball Board to determine if further division of age groups is necessary, based on teams registered.  Divisions within age groups will be split into further groups: West, East, South and Midwest.  The Board will work together to create groups based on standings history and coach information to provide for better competitive matchups.  Based on number of teams registered, separate playoff and championship games may be provided for groups as appropriate.

It is the AYL Basketball Board's goal to manage a program that is fun and promotes sportsmanship and a lifelong love of the game of basketball.  Throughout the season we will post updates and other additional information so please check back periodically

Thank you for participating in the AYL Basketball Program!
