2017 RPPF YBL Logo reducedPark-Forest Youth Basketball League (RPFYBL)

Two Communities. One League. One Goal. The RPFYBL is a recreational league for boys and girls in grades 1st-8th. In addition to emphasizing the fundamentals of the sport—passing, shooting, ball-handling, and defense-- participants will learn the importance of teamwork and good sportsmanship. Youth will be assigned to a team that will play in a minimum of 10 competitive games, with standings being updated weekly. Most games are played on Saturday mornings/afternoons. Other participating communities may be included. All participants will receive a full uniform and basketball, with awards being distributed at the season's end. Practices and game locations may vary. The spectator fee for games applies to all parents and guests. Once uniforms are ordered, no refunds will be given under any circumstance. Please ensure accuracy in the child's uniform size when registering, as replacement uniforms will be issued at the parent's expense ($60)

$50 is due at registration for payment plans, as well as a $10 payment plan processing fee.

Full Balance due by Jan. 13, 2023

The RPFYBL follows all State of Illinois mandates with regard to COVID-19. Additional safety measures may also be in place throughout the season. Limited participants this season, so register fast!
