The Largest Temple-Based
Basketball League In the Country
Temple Beth Am operates the largest temple-based basketball league in the country and has done so for almost 50 years.
The Fall league runs from September to December and is open to both temple members and the entire community. Our High School league plays in the spring. The league emphasizes team play and sportsmanship, with a goal of improving players of all abilities.
The Fall league includes boys from 4th–8th grades, and girls from 4th–9th grades. The Spring league runs 3rd–12th grades. A wholly volunteer-led committee oversees more than 100 coaches and assistant coaches.
“A number of the players who have grown up playing in the league have gone on to play for their respective school teams,” notes Mark Gilbert, a former Beth Am Basketball Commissioner. “Some even return to coach their younger siblings.”
All evaluations will take place at Temple Beth Am on Saturday, January 21st, Outdoor Basketball Court at Temple Beth Am.
