A new type of basketball league where players are drafted onto teams. This league is like your neighborhood basketball court with all the flavor and characters but regulated with referees and scheduled games. 

No team? No problem!

If you don't have a team, don't worry, you can sign up as a free agent, and we'll put you on a team with other free agents! (Most of our members are free agents!)


  • Basketball


    We're currently in our second season of our draft basketball league, and players have been drafted onto teams by designated captains to promote parity. The competition level is JV/High School basketball, so it's not an ideal fit for beginners or elite college players. We're about good, quality basketball without any of chest thumping or overt trash talking.
