The Largest Temple-Based
Basketball League In the Country
This year marks the 50th anniversary of Beth Am Basketball, the largest temple-based basketball league in the country!
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.
Fall registration opens on August 1st. The Fall league includes boys from 3rd–8th grades, and girls from 3rd–6th 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, August 26th and Sunday. August 27th, in the Poyastro Family Athletic Center.
EVERY player for whom a registration form has been submitted must be evaluated.
