Men’s Basketball League

Vermont’s longest running basketball league is getting ready to return for the 2017-2018 season. Games are played Tuesday and Thursday nights from early December into April.

Do you have a team interested in being a part of this season? Are you a player looking to find a team to join? Reach out to Paul Garwood at the Y by email at or give him a call at 802-652-8182.

A captain’s meeting will be held on Tuesday, November 28th at 7pm in the Pomerleau Family Y gymnasium and the league is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, December 5th. Only team captains who have confirmed their team’s participation with Paul Garwood should attend the November 28th captain’s meeting. As the league approaches opening day tip off, we will have a better idea of our capacity to take on new teams or individuals.
